CR-10 With OctoPi Pause at height issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · CR-10 With OctoPi Pause at height issues

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.
