When using pause at Height, the resume position is ruining my prints


Recommended Posts

Posted · When using pause at Height, the resume position is ruining my prints


I am using Pause at Height to change filament colours.

I print a small disc with my actual objects so that when the printer resumes it starts to print on the throw away small disc so as to settle down the filament and not to ruin the actual print.

However on some prints the printer resumes at the edge of the actual object and as it squirts filament out at this point, ruins the print.

Is there a way to specify the resume position so that I can be sure it always starts on the small disc?

Any help on this much apreciated.

    Hey @iansapsed,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    There are settings you can change to influence the Squirt of Filament. 
    But they are all dependent on the type of printer you have. Which printer do you have? Perhaps there is someone on the forum who has the same printer as you do who can help you out. 

    You can test the following option in the Post Processing Plugin
    - Filament Change (instead of Pause at height)
    - Pause at Height, but select a different Method
    - Pause at Height, but increase Retraction

    Do you have a project file for us? It contains the printer and settings we need for troubleshooting. 
    To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

      • 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.
