Posted · restarting print at different heights

My experience with the Ultimaker has had it's ups and downs and lately it will print perfectly up to a point when it just jams. I've been all over the forum trying to fix the problem and I'm sure I'll get there but untill then, I usualy take the filament out of the extrusion head, cut the tip of PLA off and then restart the print.

I use Cura for my prints. Is it possible, after a print has been stopped, to restart it with the Z axis set to a certain height? I know the software allows me to cut the buttom of the print (the part that has been printed) but can I restart the print so I don't have to take what has been printed out of the printer and later glue the two parts?

    Remembering some posts a while ago I'm sure there are some people with experience of restart aborted prints.

    Nevertheless, it's a manual gcode hack as cura is not supporting this requirement.

    Sorry that I can't post a link to the topic but I'm writing from my phone.... I'm sure you will find it with the search function
