Ender 3 Pro Not Pausing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ender 3 Pro Not Pausing

Howdy Y'all!

 

I can't get my Ender 3 Pro to pause to allow me to insert magnets into my prints. I use the post-processing pause at height feature and set it to the last layer I want printed before insertion, but it only moves the nozzle out of the way for a few seconds before resuming. This wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have a lot of magnets to insert, but I simply cannot get them in on time and would rather not have to stare at my printer for hours to try.

 

Any help is much appreciated! I read some things here and there about firmware already, so if that's the case is there a guide to tinkering with that?

 

Thanks so much!

    ... there are some problems with the "Pause at Height" prost-processing script... Instead of using "at height" try "layer no"...

     

    Some advice, do more layer than just only one to "cover" the magnets...

     

    Good Video that explains PauseAtHeight... just don't change filament 😉

      • 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
