Cura 4.7.1 Pause at Height Skipping Layer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.7.1 Pause at Height Skipping Layer

Hey everyone, trying to figure out an issue with my Ender 3 Pro using Cura's pause at height plugin. For some reason, it seems to skip the layer before the pause, and I'm not sure exactly why. For these settings, I watched the part be printed, and it printed fully at the 1.8 layer, paused, then resumed at 2.2, essentially skipping the layer at Z=2. I've attached my plugin settings as well as the section of the GCode where I believe the issue is, but I don't know enough about it to understand what the issue is. Using the latest TH3D firmware for the 4.2.7 silent board. Any help is appreciated!

    After digging into the GCode file, it looks like there may be a bug in the Pause at Height script.  I tried again but this time selecting the "Redo layer" and it went from 1.8 > 2.2 > 2.0 and then resumed layers regularly.  And digging into this GCode it appears to do 2.2 twice, so the initial script looks like it's seeing that split second of being at Z=2 and that's all there is for that layer.  I've attached my GCode files for the two scripts with and without selecting the "redo layer" option

    There are several bug reports and a lot of discussion of this on Github.  The Cura team knows about the bug.  It appears it is not an easy fix.  I think "at height" works better if adaptive layers is off and there are no z-hops changing the height all the time.

    Sometimes with a newer version of Cura these kind of options don't work any more, they will be fixed in newer updates so sometimes you have to wait a little or use an older version!


    The times I used this option, it was always with "pause at layer"... therefore never noticed that "pause at height" didn't work.

      • 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
