Pause at height problem on the UM3

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I wanted to use the post processing plugin "Pause at height" to swap filament during a dual-color print (so I can have three colors). The problem is that the plugin interface sets default values for the "standby temperature" and "resume temperature". This basically destroyed my print since after the pause the printer tried to extrude at 70 degrees (feeder just kept going eating into the filament).

Did anyone experience the same problem or am I doing something wrong with this plugin?

ah, heck. there was a bug, the bug was squashed, and then I used this tool happily just a few weeks ago in 3.1 with a whole workshop full of people. Can you share the resulting patch of gcode at that height to match with these settings? And of course the cura version. 

 

I don't just want to help you (which I do of course), but I also need to use that plugin on Saturday! :)

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
