Pause Plugin Dosen't Extrude After Restart

Recommended Posts

Posted · Pause Plugin Dosen't Extrude After Restart

My problem with this Pause at height/layer plugin is that after it pauses, and I have added a nut I want embedded, with the nozzle holding at the print temperature, upon restart it starts going through all the motions X, Y, and Z right to the finish but does not extrude any more material except the occasional blob.  The extruder gear and idler can be seen moving back and forth in very small increments occasionally but otherwise doing nothing at all.  The image shows the layer that it stopped with the nut in place and the results afterwards, just blobs, yet the printer continued on as if nothing were wrong right to completing the final layer and parking itself at home.

 

And this happens using either height or layer option.

I don't know which printer you are using, but with the UM3 there is a bug with this plugin as far as I know. I don't have it in my mind exactly, but I read some days ago a post about such problems with the UM3.

 

Another possibility could be, that your feeder has grinded the filament and cannot move if forward. But this is something you would see on the filament and when you start the print the problem would still exists.

Smithy, thanks for the reply.

The printer I am using is a Creality CR-10S.  There does not seem to be anything unusual about the filament.  As I watch the feeder operate the filament is moving when the feeder gear turns, either way; there is only just a very small amount of movement and seems to be random.

And when you abort this print or it has finished without extruding material and you start a new print, is that working fine, also without changing the filament? 

 

I just want to be sure, that the nozzle is not clogged or something else.

It is a bug in the plugin. I just keep an eye on the print to embed my stuff using regular pause on my machine. Klugey, yes, but until it is fixed, I do not use it.

I have done a half dozen of these trying to get the nut house dimensioned correctly and there is never a problem with starting a new one.  I will try a manual pause but I have had problems with doing that with this machine so we will see.  Thanks.

Thanks to kmanstudios - it is a general bug in this plugin. I thought only the UM3 if affected by this bug, but seems a general issue.

It should be fixed for Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker 3 in Cura 3.5.

I did a manual pause and after inserting the nut restarted and, other than an obvious groove in the surface at the pause layer that runs the entire perimeter, it printed nicely.
