Need a little help with pause at layer.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Need a little help with pause at layer.

I just recently got a Kobra Max printer and when I try to pause at a certain layer using the post script on Cura, it pauses fine but there is no way to restart it again, at least that I can see. Anyone have any ideas as to why? I've used it before on my ender 3, but can't figure this one out. In the pic those are the only options I have to choose from once it gets to the height I want it to pause at. if I hit the pause button on the screen, it says waiting for cache command to complete, but gets stuck at that point no matter how long I wait.

    Hey @constantine42,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


    Unfortunetly I do not have a Kobra Max Printer so I cannot help you there. Let's hope that there is someone in the community that can help you out.

    I did notice that the type of post processing script you use matter on different printers.
    If you are stuck I reccommend experimenting with the different settings here until you find some that work for you. 


    Good luck!

    I have a Mega S which uses Marlin firmware. When you use the Pause at Height script it inserts an M0 command at the height/layer you selected. The M0 command has several flags, P is the delay time in milliseconds, S is the delay time in seconds. Edit your gcode file an search for the M0 command and insert your choice of flags. I use S typically, S120 will give you 2 minutes to insert nuts, magnets, or whatever in to your print.
