Feature request: Indicator for pause postprocessing enabled


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Feature request: Indicator for pause postprocessing enabled

I have printed quite a few objects where I forgot that I had pause postprocessing plugin enabled and came back later to a print that was paused waiting for me to change the filament.  Yes... it is my fault for not checking that :).


Is there any chance of a visual indicator or for a pause plugins to pop up anther info box (whatever makes sense) to help remind us that a pause was put into the gcode?  There are a lot of ways it could be done but I am not sure what really would make sense to do.


My favorite is #3 so far.  Any other ideas?


1. Temporary Info box when you slice.  This idea would likely be too much of a nuisance when you always have pauses in your prints so likely not the best idea.

2. A note on the slice status to say that a pause plugin is enabled.  Not in your way and just helps indicate that a pause is in the print.  This I kind of like.

3. When you click the button to send the print to the printer or save the gcode, a temporary info window (non blocking like the other info rectangular areas that pop up to let you know what is going on).  This isn't as much as a nuisance and it would be a nice reminder.  Maybe people wouldn't like the additional info box though if they do pauses all the time.  Maybe it could be an option or something.

4. Other ideas?
