CR-10 With OctoPi Pause at height issues

Recommended Posts

This isn't my first time I had an issue with pause at height, but I don't know if this is an issue with Cura or Octopi.

 

For some reason when I try and print this file the first half prints fine, but when I get to the pause at height, all of a sudden it stops extruding when it resumes. Either has anyone else had this issue, or is there a way that I can view the gcode in anything other than Octopi? 

 

Here is my current setup

Printer CR-10

Slicer: Cura

Plugin: Pause at Height

     height: 4mm

     Park Print Head X: 10mm

                               Y: 10mm

     retraction: 25

     Retraction speed: 25

      extrude amount: 5

      redo layers: 0

      standby temp: 195

       resume temp: 205

 

I need to get this printed by tuesday. I can print in one color (I have printed a few already) but I would like to get dual colors. I will try different settings to see if any of them work better.

Also I viewed the gcode in a online gcode viewer and got the same massive retraction issues.

I attempted different pause options (with a online g-code viewer). The only ones that didn't create a bunch of retractions issues are the "Pause at Height (BQ Printere)" and "Color Change". Should I use one of these instead of the "Pause at Height? 

 

Please let me know if I am doing something wrong. I am loving useing Cura, but getting the pauseing to work properly has been frustrating.

    • "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.
