Restart a print on a given layer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Restart a print on a given layer

Is there a way to restart a paused print on a given layer?

 

During a print the material got stuck in the feeder, so I paused the print,  reloaded the material and was ready to resume.

The problem was, that this has happend 3 or 4 layers before I paused.

 

So ideally I would like to resume the print 4 layers before I paused it.

Does anybody know a trick how to do that, without manually editing the G-code file?

 

Thank you for your expertise.

Thanks for the reply.

 

I have an Ultimker 3. Sorry, I forgot to mention in my original post.

 

Is there also a solution out for UM3?

no, sorry.  The UM2 is more hackable.  You have to edit the gcode.  Basically remove the layers that printed already from the gcode and you have to add a G92 for extruder position (which is broken in 5.2 firmware).  Read about G92 here:

https://reprap.org/wiki/G-code#G92:_Set_Position

 

Basically look at the last E value that you delete and set the position to that value.  So if the last deleted printing move was:

G1 X123.432 Y23.4433 E1000.5123

 

Then replace it with

G92 E1000.5123

 

Other wise it will try to extrude a meter on the first printing move.
