restarting a paused print

Posted · restarting a paused print

Trying to use cura's post processing ext to pause a print at a specific layer, do a color change than resume

Print does stop at specific layer and move to set position, able to change filament...but how to resume?

Printer is a cr10s pro running tiny machines firmware

 

tkx in advance

    Pressing the only button there is on your printer should do the trick!

    Have tried several, only has stop/pause/adjust... just tried pause and machine locks, have to reboot and it does nor resume, starts at main screen. just going to have to use the pause and be quick with the change over before nozzel cools to much

    With the right settings, the nozzle will not cool down... which of the "pause" options do you use? There a a few of them you can choose!

    Hi,  Just tried the menu pause, stopped it a couple layers early, quickly swapped the colors, hit resume... but because of the filament out sensor it delayed....not sure what i did but it finally resumed and working, I'm thinking it was the temp but was in a hurry and did not look, be nice if in the post extension there was a setting for delay time? than just resume? 

    Have to study the g-code a bit more in depth to see if it could be implemented? sure it can

    The only delay time is set by the "Disarm Timeout".  It keeps the stepper motors from disarming and losing their position.  Max is 1800 seconds (30 minutes).  If you don't set it to 1800 you only have 2 minutes to complete the switch before the machine loses itself.  The standby temperature should be set to your printing temperature.

     

    Cut a piece of filament.  When using the Pause at Height plug-in, stick the piece of filament into the filament sensor and leave your main filament line out of it.  When you change filament, the machine won't notice because the little piece is still in the sensor.  Within your printer must be a routine that runs when filament runs out.  It is likely that it kills the heaters and then you have to wait a while for them to heat back up.

    Tkx, just started a second same print for the second pilot arm, ill pay more attention this time to what the temps are doing, can always unplug the filament sensor plug when i need to do this.....the cr10s pro dual filament printer is looking good lol

    Next time tell us ALL relevant information like that your printer has a runout-filament-sensor!

    I use Ultimaker 3 Ext.,

    At new Cura 4.7.1 "Pause at Height", which "method" should I use?

    Griffin is the gcode flavor for the Ultimaker 3 and the S-line printers.

    The Pause at height script automatically selects Griffin for you, because that is applicable for your printer.
