Printer breaks filament connection when resuming print with altered GCODE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer breaks filament connection when resuming print with altered GCODE

Hello. I had a print run out of filament on a Monoprice Maker Select V2 that I had sliced with Cura. I had issues trying to resume and appreciate any thoughts.


Every time the print would begin extruding to resume, the filament would break. I tried this about 4 times and with a second spool.




I followed the tips here: 



And I now see the thread here:


Basically, I used the printer to measure its own Z axis and erased all of the Cura GCODE above that layer. But did I erase something important that prevents it from breaking its own filament?


I've started the print over now (from nothing), and everything is working normally. But I'll likely want to be able to resume like this in the future and hope to learn how to fix the process.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
