Auto Pause after printing a layer

Fri Apr 12, 2019 11:36 pm

Can you set the printer up to pause after it gets to a certain point so you can change the filament color? I want it to print 1mm high then pause so i can change the color. Print another 1mm high then pause, I want to do this 4 times. I am using a Dremel and designing with Tinkercad. Thank you

You can do this by adding a terminal command for post processing in the Scripts tab. You will need to identify the layers (layer 5 is used as an example) you want to pause at and then enter a post processing script at the top of the additional terminal commands for post processing section as seen below:

{REPLACE "; layer 5" "G5/n;"}
