Print interupted due to power failure. Didn't have a backup power.

I was printing a 24 hour model and during the 18th hour the power went out. I was not having any backup. Is there any way to resume/recover the print?

It is possible, not simple but possible.

First thing to make sure is leaving the heated bed at temperature (if you're printing with it) to avoid the print to detach.

I'll search the forum for the procedure give me 5 minutes

Indeed :mrgreen:

I have a small UPS on my printer to avoid micro power fails (they happen quite often in my area). I'm not sur how long it can hold tough

If you want a ups to be a bit affordable 10 hr prints without power wont be an option.... but 15 minutes or so should be doable... for maybe 3 to 4 hundred euro.... still a lot more money than a few failed prints..
