Post Processing Script to pause then move Z axis

Recommended Posts

I can add G4 300 (wait 5minutes for the hotend to cool down)

Then G0 Z250 (move Z axis to top of printer) to my end Gcode.

I do this as it  activates a micro switch to cut power to the printer which is positioned at the top of the printer.

I was hoping somebody would help me put this into a post processing script so that i don't have to remember to edit my end gcode, As if its a script then the tool icon will appear near the send to printer after slicing, as I have such a lousy memory.

PS this need to be done when the print has finished.

    • "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.
