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 😉
