restarting print at different heights

Recommended Posts

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

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
