pause ulticontroller

Recommended Posts

Hi! I just bought an Ulticontroller and i'm curious if it is possible to pause a print with it. I used to use the pause functionality in pronterface, but I can't find anything in the Ulticontroller menu.

The reason i'm asking is that I have very large prints (+15 hours) I would like to pause the print when i leave the office at night and resume it when I get back in the morning. Is something like this possible with the UltiController?

kind regards,

Firmware is my speciality :p Cura is actually the odd project for me. I've already added M0/M1 support to the firmware a while back. Pause on the Ulticontroller is just an extension of that.

Well in that case, put a "me too" for richard's suggestion.

Would movement be in the firmware too? I've been trying to level the bed with just the Ulticontroller, and it takes forever just to move the head. If yes, please put my suggestion on the list too. :D

    • "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.
