Posted · Where to cut GCode in order to save a failed print?

Hello,


Forgive me if this is the incorrect place for this topic—new to these forums.

I was 8.5 hours into a 9-hour print when a snag in the filament spool caused the print to "finish" the last 30 minutes with no actual extrusion happening. I've identified the Z-Height where the failure happened, and want to continue the print from that point by removing all GCode before that point. In looking at the Cura GCode, I'm realizing that rather than being noted in a really obvious place (such as as the beginning of a new layer), the Z-Height is listed in what seems like the tail-end of a layer among a lot of other code that I'm having trouble deciphering. Basically, I want to remove all code from before my relevant point, but afraid of deleting something important (like extrusion info). Can somebody lend a hand in where I should be editing the code from? I also understand that I'll need to modify some of the startup code, so I won't just be deleting everything before this point.

The Z-Height I need to be at is 119.6. I've made the Z-Height line bold, as well as the start of the next layer in this cut/paste of the section below. 

Thanks for reading!

    As a start, you can delete everything before the line 

    ;LAYER:597

    The G0 lines are just travel moves to avoid crossing the print.

    You need to set the extruder to the last E value before the layer change, so insert a lines

    G92 E174.18367   ;set extruder to last position

    G0 F600 X77.476 Y129.528 Z119.6 ;move to start of new layer

     

    just before G1 F2400 E180.18367

     

     

    so you end up with

    Now you need to somehow home the printer without knocking the print off the bed and get things heated up.

    manually move the nozzle above 119.60 then start printing.

    I think that should work🤞
