Pause Height idle for long period of time


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Pause Height idle for long period of time

So my printers are ender 3s with CR Touch. A lot of my print jobs are over 8 hrs and use multiple colors. I use pause break with BQ as the method to change the filaments at the set layer height. My issue is that sometimes I leave my printer printing while i am at work. If I am not near the printer to click on resume, it will just stay right above the rear left of the print and creates a blob. Is there a way that when I'm not near the printer it stops at another location that is not on above the print.

    That would be a custom pause macro at the firmware level, not something you really set in Cura settings.

    Additionally leaving a hotend heated and just sitting not extruding for a prolong period of time is very much not recommended. That's how you carbonize the material in the hotend causing clogging and even fires depending the material used.

      • 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
