Posted · resuming g-code

Hi, I have a large print that I want to pause because I don't want to leave my printer running unattended.

It stopped at layer 100. Now I would like to resume it at this layer the next time. I was thinking of just deleting the first 100 layers from the g-code and running the rest, is this possible?

The first commands at layer 100 look like this:

;LAYER:100

;TYPE:WALL-OUTER

G1 X73.206 Y124.307 Z20.2 F9000.0

G1 X20.861 Y23.532

G1 X20.069 Y20.68

will this instruct the printer to start at Z position 20.2, without "homing" first?

Also, should I change anything to the g-code start section?

I

;TYPE:CUSTOM

;Sliced file.stl at: Fri 20 Jul 2012 16:05:02

;Basic settings: Layer height: 0.2 Walls: 0.8 Fill: 20

;Print time: 41:22

;Filament used: 81.13m 691.87g

;Filament cost: Unknown

G21 ;metric values

G90 ;absolute positioning

M107 ;start with the fan off

G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops

G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops

G92 X0 Y0 Z0 E0 ;reset software position to front/left/z=0.0

G1 Z15.0 F180

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length

G1 F200 E3

G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again

;G1 X100 Y100 F9000

G1 F9000

thanks!
