A modest Cura Suggestion. If you add post processing script to pause at height, it will change it to relative extrusion, and back to absolute extrusion, even if you have relative extrusion set in the global slicer settings.

Would be more user friendly if the post process script either let you choose relative extrusion, or detected that the global setting was relative and left it that way.

 

A humble request from a user who has scrapped 1 too many prints after forgetting to edit the gcode after slicing.

    In your Cura folder  "...\Plugins\PostProcessingPlugins\Scripts" is PauseAtHeight.py.  Near the end of that file is a line: prepend_gcode += self.putValue(M = 82) + " ; switch back to absolute E values\n

     

    If you were to open the file in Notepad and change it like this

    prepend_gcode += self.putValue(M = 83) + " ; relative E values\n

    I think you would get what you want.

     

    You could also use the Search and Replace plugin to change all M82's in the file to M83's.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
