Why does the Pause at Height Animation not show?

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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
