Using Pause at height twice didn't work as expected

Recommended Posts

Im using Cura 3.2.1 Appimage.

Just noticed, if I try to use the "Pause at height" more than once it doesn'T work correctly

Above is an exerpt from the generated g-code.

There should be a pause at 0.8mm and the other one at 1.6mm

As you can see, the code for the second pause is inserted immediate before the code for the first pause.

Additional the 2nd pause records a false current height (should be 1.6)

So, little sleeping and thinking about a problem sometimes helps ;-)

The script gets confused in the second run (for the higher located pause) from the "G1 Z" lines inserted in the first run.

Reverse the order for the Pause at height (from highest to lowest) solves this issue.

A little less intuitiv, but it helps ;-))

Maybe this is just another argument for a "Pause at layers" @tinkergnome ;-))
