Change color plugin working erratically

Posted · Change color plugin working erratically

Change color plugin seems to change color in totally wrong layer. For example if I set change to happen before layer 16, the change happened in layer 14. What's up with that? If I put the color change in gcode manually it works great.

 

Using the latest Cura 3.2.

    Same here. Also, it starts to purge filament before moving home, leaving a blob onto my print. I've checked the .py code and added X10 Y15 to the M600 command.

    Probably the layer calculation is also faulty in the code. Will check that later on.

    Same here...

     

    For example, I set color change in layer 37, but when I open the generated gcode I see this:

     

    ;LAYER:34
    G0 X110.67 Y105.834 Z3.7
    M600 E30.00 L30.00 ; Generated by ColorChange plugin

     

    I'm using Cura 3.2.1. Can be a bug?

     

    Thank you.
