Please add a Pause Print feature to Cura?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Please add a Pause Print feature to Cura?

How do you request a feature?

I just got my printer (Printrand immediatly started using CURA.. And frankly its awsome and I have no wish to try anything else as it does everything that I could ever wish for.

Appart from 1 thing.. Pausing a print?

In my first week, I have wanted/needed to pause the job several times due to tangled filament or to remove a 'blob' from the bed and was surprised that there is no feature to do this.

I understand that this used to exist and it was buggy.. And I know I am not the only person to ask for this.. So I just wanted to start a thread for this, just incase the devs might consider adding this.

I suspect there are technical reasons why this can't be done.. But I just live in hope that someone could find a way to do it.

I look forwards to any thoughts you have, and have my fingers crossed that one day it happens.

Jon

This feature is already built into the UM Original and UM2. Not sure how ti would work through usb...

You can print with pronterface once you have sliced to gcode files. Does pronterface have pause feature? You can get it here:

When I connect to the printer with usb over Octoprint I can still use the built in controls on the UM2 and trigger a print from the menu. I dont know if you can pause from a print triggered from octoprint but I wouldn't see why.

It should be in the Tune menu.

Don't think that will work properly for the UM2.
