Pause at Height incorrect...

The Plug-In may have a Problem. I used an Item to print with Layerheight of 0.2mm and wanted to insert a Nut at 13.6mm (Layer 68) but there is no Pause at this Height. It only does this Pause at 13.5mm instead.

I beleive that it would be helpful to have also displayes at which Layer the Pause should happen (Layer 68 => 13.6mm). This is helpful because in Cura you can select every Layer wit Shift-Up/Down and see where the Pause is useful.

    Hi

    All Layers are set to the same (0.2mm). It seems that the Plug-In does only make a Pause when the Value is a litlte over the choosen Layer. There is no Offset or so for the first Layer and therefore it should mak the Pause at the selected Layer (68 in my Case).

    I have seen that it needs some Time to update the Layer View. Changes are not displayed direct after I make it. It works with 0.1mm Layer Height and is easyer to set this Way. (13.6mm = Layer 136)

    I can't get it working... The Item is the following:

    http://www.dipic.org/PFS_1.stl

    Layer Height: 0.1mm

    Cut Off Object Bottom: 0.0mm

    M3 Nut insert: (Pause required at): 15.5mm

    The Plug-In does not make a Pause at the required Height and I don't know why.

    What am I doing wrong with this Part/Plug-In? (latest Cura used)

    Hi dipicorg,

    I was able to reproduce the issue when playing around with the print settings a few times. I was also able to get it to work properly on the first few updates.

    Try settings all the print settings and plugin settings you need for your print, let it slide, restart Cura, load your object again.

    I'll dig a little more to see why after a while it stop working.

    Ok so even if the display doesn't show it. The pause still get written in the gcode.

     


    ;LAYER:77
    ;TYPE:CUSTOM
    M83
    G1 E-5.000000 F6000
    G1 X190.000000 Y190.000000 F9000
    M84 E0
    M0
    G1 E5.000000 F6000
    G1 E-5.000000 F6000
    G1 X119.217000 Y110.010000 F9000
    G1 E5.000000 F6000
    G1 F9000
    M82

    For your info:

    - The pause will occur at the first height >= to the given number so the layer height should not impact the plugin.

    - The pause occur BEFORE printing the layer.

    - The plugin doesn't support "Print one at a time" mode.

    No that's fine. It just wont get in the code again after it hit the good height a first time.
