Cura 5.1 pause at layer height issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 5.1 pause at layer height issue

Before 5.0(5.1) when I would use the post processing and include a Pause at layer height, I would change out filament and hit resume.  Once it hit temp it would extrude a little bit of filament before it would move back over the print to start again.


Now with 5.1 it moves over the print and extrudes it right on the print leaving a big blob and almost ruins the print cause the nozzle hits it when it comes back around to that spot.


Any one know why it does this now ?  Is there something new that needs to be checked to fix this

    I guess not to many people probably use the feature of pausing at a layer height to change out filament.  But if any one has come up with a solution for it to do the extrude before it moves over the print please share.

    I had to set "Retraction" to 0 which fixed the issue for me.


    I suspect that somehow the retraction setting is used as "Extrude Amount" as well when you start printing again.


    Please let me know if that fixed your problem.

      • 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
