Cura 3.1 "Change at height".

Posted · Cura 3.1 "Change at height".

I have been using Cura 15 with the "Change at Z" plugin and it works great to change filament colors during print. I started using Cura 3.1 and I love it! But I can't find a way to change filament. I found something that they say is now called "Change at height" which sounds like it should work, but I can't find it anywhere.

I did find a "Change at Z" version 3 that was supposed to work and I downloaded it. But I can't figure out how to install it in 3.1.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help!

    There are post processing scripts available to pause at height or tweak at Z. The first could easily be used to change filament. 

     

    You'll find the scripts under main menu item "Extensions" -> "Post Processing" -> "Modify G-Code" and then add the script of your choice.

    Having messed with them, you may well want to try them all before using them on something big. Many of them have odd behaviors, I found the one that worked for me after trial and error.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
