I am trying to imbed steel weight into a print to make it heavy. It would be nice to have a feature where you can stop the print at a certain layer to then place the metal in. Does this already exist? I currently just babysit the printer until it get to the right layer(s). 

 

I have a UM S5 Pro Bundle and use Cura.

    Go to extensions - post processing - modify g-code - add a script - pause at height 

     

    Looking to get better adhesion from HIPS on my printer; I currently pause it manually and apply gaffer's tape around the edge of the brim to keep it in place, but after finding the Pause at Height option I was sold.

    I know that I pause printing at the end of the second layer to make it easy, but is there any way to have it pause when the printer moves from printing the brim to printing the parts?

     

    Thanks!

    Not currently. This would need a custom postprocessing script.
