Posted · Cura 5.3 Release - PauseAtHeight not working for Anycubic Kobra, without manual G-code modification

Printing with different colors on my Anycubic Kobra with PauseAtHeight drove me nuts.

For testing I used a testcylinder with D=10mm and H= 15mm.

The PauseAtHeight breaks were programmed for layer 25 and 50 of total 75 layers.

 

First I tried several setups of the PauseAtHeight script and no one, worked on my Kobra.

This is, because Anycubic seems to not have proper installed M0 code.

Finaly I found one setup with manual gcode adjustment that workes for me.

The printer uses Marlin Gcode.

 

General: Kobra Printer only stops for longer time, when "Pause"-Button on the display is pressed.

     - When  reaching the pause layer, the printer goes to park position , lift-up and Beep

     - When you press the "Pause"-Button  - printer displays " Paused, waiting for cache command to complete"

 

1.) Keep Motors enganded (3600s) - not working

    - After pressing "Pause-Button- printer displays " Paused, waiting for cache command to complete"

    - This state last for minimum 1 hour - because of "M84 S3600 ; Keep steppers engaged for 1h"

 

2.) Disarm Timeout (30s) - not working

     - Printer Goes to park position , lift-up and Beep

     - After pressing "Pause-Button- printer displays " Paused, waiting for cache command to complete"

     - This state last for infinite.

 

3.) No Motors Enganged, Disarm timeout (0)  - not working

     - Printer Goes to park position , lift-up and Beep

     - After pressing "Pause-Button- printer displays " Paused, waiting for cache command to complete"

     - This state last for infinite.

 

4.) No Motors Enganged, Disarm timeout (0),  G-code before Pause ((G4 S30) - not working

     - Printer Goes to park position , lift-up and Beep

     - After pressing "Pause-Button- printer displays " Paused, waiting for cache command to complete"

     - This state last for infinite.

 

5.) No Motors Enganged, Disarm timeout (0),  + manual modification in gcode file ( M0 S30) - Working

     - Printer Goes to park position , lift-up and Beep

     - After pressing "Pause-Button- printer displays " Paused, waiting for cache command to complete" 

     - This state last for 30 seconds

    - Then z-axis lifts for the internal "Pause"- move

    - screen with "Resume"-Button is shown followed be some beeps.

    - After pressing "Resume" the printer primes the extruder and continues the work.

 

    - When you dont press "Pause", within 30 seconds of the first beep, the printer directly continues with extruder priming and printing.

 

To achive this, I manually modified the generated G-code file as follows.

**** generated G-Code ****

    M104 S230 ; standby temperature
    M300 S440 P1000 ; Beep
    M0 ; Wait for Pause
    M109 S230 ; WAIT for resume temperature

*****

 

***** modified G-Code ****

   M104 S230 ; standby temperature
   M300 S440 P1000 ; Beep 
   M0 S30 ; Wait for Pause
    M109 S230 ; WAIT for resume temperature

****

 

 

My Question is, if there's a possibility to include  this addition of S30 to the M0 Code in the script.

Either permanent or with a separate Radio-button in the script parameters.

    You could always add an additional "Search and Replace" script to change "M0 ; Wait for Pause" to "M0 S30 ; Wait for Pause"

    I didn't know about this "Search and Replace" script before.  It's working, but it's more a workaround than a solution.

        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.
