Cura 3.3.1 insert pause at height hitts the object

Recommended Posts

I insert a pause at height 17 (want the printer to make a break for a moment at this layer)

reaching this layer the printhead hardly hits in the object and then pauses. It destroys the print by hitting it. i have to reset the printer. what am i doing wrong?

see attached screenshot the cura settings for pause.

Hi berndjm,

sorry, i don't want to try this a third time, because it diggs very hardly, and the forces are high (dont want to destroy my nozzle)
When i analyse the code i can see following:

in lines above it is at position Z3.3

then the pause script starts and moves the head down to 1mm ---->>> G1 F300 Z1

then the scriptz elevates it to  15mm --->>>   G1 F300 Z15

thereafter back to 3,5   G0 X144.47 Y126.99 Z3.5 (what would be alright.

 

The code to move the head down to position 1mm is definitely wrong --- buggy script
