Pause at height ?


Recommended Posts

Hi, when I put a "pause"  in a g-code at layer N, when does it occur exactly? before the beginning of the print of layer N or at the end of the print of  this layer ?

    Remember that layer numbers in a gcode file start with "0" and the layers in Cura Preview start with "1".  When you look at the Cura preview and decide what layer you want to to be the first layer after the pause, subtract "1" and put that number into the Pause at Height dialog box.

     

    EX:  So I look at the preview and decide that layer 13 will be the first layer of my new color.  I enter "12" into the dialog.

    As the print runs and finishes gcode layer:11 it will pause and so gcode layer:12 will be the first layer with the new color (or with the nut in place or whatever you wanted the pause for).
