Adding option to switch to relative extrusion for Pause at Height

Posted · Adding option to switch to relative extrusion for Pause at Height

Hi, if this is not the correct place to suggest a change in Ultimaker Cura, please just point me in the right direction.

 

I was playing with the Pause at Height feature in Cura and I noticed that the gcode inserted switched the print to extrusion absolute mode. My printer uses relative mode, so it took me a while to figure out why it wasn't working. I can manually modify the gcode myself, changing all M82 command to M83, but it would be nice to have the option of switching between relative and absolute in the plugin itself.

    In the Cura folder ...C:\Program Files\Ultimaker Cura 4.X\plugins\PostProcessingPlugin\scripts\PauseAtHeight.py

    The PauseAtHeight.py file can be opened in a text editor.  The following line is near the end:

    prepend_gcode += self.putValue(M = 82) + " ; switch back to absolute E values\n"

    Change the 2 to 3, save the file, restart Cura.  I'm not a Python guy but you should be good to go.

    Cura 4.7 PauseAtHeight allows you to add a gcode command "Gcode after the pause" but it goes in as the first line after the pause which doesn't work since the M82 is a few lines later.
