Why does the Pause at Height Animation not show?

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this should be a feature request, because it was available in Cura 15.x.x.  But I would love to see the "Show Travels" reflect the movement of the print head when you do the "Pause at Height Post Processing Script"


The attached image shows the Blue Travel line of the head parking itself during a pause at height, but I see no such travel line in Cura 3.x

There are two architectural reasons you don’t see the effect of postprocessing scripts.


The Layer View does not actually show the gcode, but a preview created along-side the gcode, because actually parsing the gcode would take much, much longer. On top of that, postprocessing scripts are only executed just before printing/saving the gcode.

    • "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.
