Post processing question, am I doing this right?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Post processing question, am I doing this right?

I've begun to explore some of the more advanced features in Cura with post processing but have ran into an issue. 


I want to learn how to add a pause at a specific layer height, however when I do my printer's firmware (tiny machines) thinks I have run out of filament and prompts me to click yes/no. Yes does nothing even after a very long time and no aborts the print. I've added a few pictures if I didn't described it very well. 


Did I fill out the post processing options correctly or do I need to do something differently to pause at layer 9 and then successfully resume my print? BTW I'm also using the newest version of Cura 4.8 I think it is now.

    What does the M0 command represent? My printer is a crs10 pro, I just flashed it with tiny machines version of Marlin's firmware. I'm not sure is the problem originates with my firmware or just my knowledge of Cura. Where can I read about different options?

    It would appear that Tiny Machines is a re-seller of various manufacturers printers and that they upload their own firmware.  To make sure, you need to go back to Tiny Machines and find out what the gcode pause command should be, and how to restart.

    Layer numbers in a Gcode file are "Base 0" and in Cura they are "Base 1".  When you look at a preview in Cura and decide that you want to pause at layer 9 then in the Pause at Height dialog you would enter an 8 (the Cura  layer -1).

      • 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
