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.
