Pause at Height/Layer - UM3E & Cura 3.3.1 - Need info

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience using this combination of hardware and software?  I tried over the weekend for my first time ever and, either I set something incorrectly, it or it doesn't work properly.  In my case, the print paused when I expected it to, but on resume - it was a mess.  The bed returned to the hot end and kept going - crashing into the print and boring a hole into my print...it kept trying to go up until eventually (assuming some kind of failsafe), it stopped and failed.


Hoping I did something wrong as I would love for this feature to work.


Thanks for whatever you all can tell me.

Did not dare to use it with the UM3 but used the UM2+ today and it also messed up.

Paused at layer nr., checked the code view to see if it happened at the right moment. 

At the moment of the pause the printhead went 2-3 mm in the model (not good!) and went to the 190,190 corner over the other walls.

After resuming the printhead went to the 0,0 corner (also not good!! and not also visible in the preview) and then resumed printing about 5 mm shifted to the back, so not in the right position.

Second attempt, changed the park position to 0,0. Again a dive of 2-3 mm in the model and again the shift.....
