For some unknown reason, after slicing a project that has say 39 layers, my Duet Web Control showsa total of  2499 layers.  When it reaches 39, it stops the print as normal.

The percentage complete is running normal, the file, filament, and layer time estimates are running normaly (although it's roughly twice the time to print as the Cura Estimate).

I am using Cura 4.6.1


Any ideas

    Thanks for the gcode file. Near the bottom of that file it has this:


    G1 Z250;        Move bed to 250


    AFAIK, RepRap/DWC calculates the number of layers in the print by looking for the highest Z value and dividing by the estimated layer height, hence the 2499 layers. Perhaps someone on the Duet forum can provide a solution?
