pause rprinting

Post by kool65 » April 30th, 2017, 1:03 pm

I've noticed a couple times that my printer has stopped mid print (at the end of a pass). It will resume if I press the control button on the control LCD. This has only happened a couple times and is not a problem, but is there a way to get it to do this voluntarily? There are various reasons for wanting to pause a print and I would like to be able to do so.

Cura (15.xx) has a plugin for this. It is called "Pause at Height". Not sure about the newer 2.x releases.

You can edit g code and add a pause.
That's the logic I used for color change.https://youtu.be/OiixypnOS8o
