Posted · UM2 change filament at a given height

hi

is there a way i can change the filament (e.g different color) at a given hight?

im using cura 14.01.

I´ve already search the interwebz but i only found plugins that didnt work or the command M600 in the G-code wich also didnt work.

Best regards.

Jonas

Hello Jonas,

Use the "Pause at height" function in full settings, tab Plugins.

I just tried the Pauseatz plugin. But when it reach its position where it should stop the print continues immediately.

here is the G code it writes:

;LAYER:4

G10

;TYPE:CUSTOM

M83

G1 E-5.000000 F6000

G1 X190.000000 Y190.000000 F9000

G1 Z15 F300

M0

G1 E5.000000 F6000

G1 E-5.000000 F6000

G1 Z2.100000 F300

G1 X117.380000 Y53.900000 F9000

G1 E5.000000 F6000

G1 F9000

M82

 

 

Edit: okay, i just found out that the M0/M1 not working on the UM2 at the moment. I also found another thread where this was already discussed. I hope it will be enabled soon.

The M0 has some issues on the UM2.

Cura 14.03-RC6 has a newer firmware: http://software.ultimaker.com/Cura_closed_beta/

This firmware has a pause function in the Tune menu. Allowing you to manually change the filament. (Not the best solution, as you have to pull out and push in the filament yourself. But workable)

Are there plans for adding an on-screen-change-filament-feature? Would be very cool! I have a few difficulties changing the filament by myself on an UM2, and in addition there is always a bit filament left in the noozle which i cannot push out by hand (like move material feature)!

Any plans to support the Pause M0/M1 command for UM2 in the future?
