Change filament per object


Recommended Posts

Posted · Change filament per object

I want print a mesh with many colors in the same layers. I can separate as many sub meshes. Is there any way for print a submesh, and when the submesh finish, wait until filament change, click and go print the next submesh ??  I did it manually but slicing one color per one color, but the nozzle hit some times with the printed mesh, for example the necklace have 3 pendants in the model, but just one in the printed version.

    As far as I know, there is no possibility, except manual editing the gcode, to pause the print in the kind you need it. There is a plugin to pause at a specific layer, but you would need it in the same layer.


    You can just go through the gcode and add the pause manually where you need it, but I am not the gcode expert and don't know the command or sequence you need for that.

    Thanks for the reply Smithy. Yes, i know in the layer pause, but this method is not the best for this scenario. I looking exactly the same way for pause when finish each object, not layer. I know that i need modify code, but like you i don't know wich code i need to write and where.

        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.
