Hi all,

 

I just saw this:

 

 

Neat trick, although I guess it would work only with that kind of fishnet-like fabric, to allow the fabric and the plastic to intermingle and form strong bonds.

 

They show in the video that you have to add some g-code to make sure the print pauses after a certain number of layers, allowing you to lay the fabric on the buildplate before resuming the print. Can we do that directly in CURA or not?

 

I do not read g-code, so it's all quite mysterious to me, though I've understood that the added bit of code does tell the printer to stop at a certain layer (third one in the video) and what to modify if I want it to stop at another layer thanks to his example. But I wouldn't be able to manually modify a g-code by myself. I wouldn't know where to include the added bit of code and such.

 

Thanks.

    you could do this with the post processing script' pause at height'. Look for Extensions (top bar) - Post processing - Modify Gcode - pause at height.

    Unfortunately the pause movement to the desired corner location, by default 190--190 is not immediately visible in the layervieuw. Load the created code to see the result.
