Pause at Height incorrect...

Recommended Posts

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.

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).

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.

G1 F9000

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.

    • "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.
