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 ;-))

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
