Move Carriage When Print Is Paused

Recommended Posts

Hello All!

 

I'm new to Cura... well, I'm new to all of this 3D printing!

 

Sometimes I need to pause the print process to pick out a some stringing before the area is enclosed.

When I pause the print, the hot end sits over the print and melts a spot on the print or leaves a blob on the print. I'd like to have the hot end move away from the print when the print process is paused. Is there a setting for this?

 

Thanks!

For static (pre-defined height/location) pausing, you could try to use a post-processing script. For dynamic (hitting 'pause' on the printer at any given time) there is no way the slicer could know that up front, so the printer firmware has to handle that (Ultimaker's do this properly, others might not).

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
