Hey all,

Has anyone tried the new "Pause Print" at a layer yet? I inserted a pause to insert a magnet. It pauses but doesn't display the message that I entered, so I tried to resume print. After resume it went to the correct spot, dropped the nozzle then went right back to pause again. Any ideas?

I don't have a solution, but just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I also have the same problem. Mine does the exact same thing you described. On current firmware and prusa slicer.

Define current firmware ?  Its always helpful to list the actual version of firmware you are using as current today might not be so tomorrow when someone reads this.

There is a known issue in 3.8.1 firmware where the M601 command used for the print pause has an infinite loop problem.  It has been fixed in 3.9.0RC.  However as that version is still a Release Candidate its a use at your own risk.  If you do want to try it is available here https://github.com/prusa3d/Prusa-Firmware/releases

Thank you for the response. That is a very good point about current, does not mean current when someone else reads the post in the future. I too am on FW 3.8.1 - 2869 and Slicer 2.2.0. I will flash back a firmware until the new one that solves the problem comes out on final release.

All,

can you please direct me on how to enable the Pause Print at a layer? 

I am trying these lines in 'Before layer Change G-Code' , but have a problem with defining the Layer_z (below in red) that I want the pause to engage. I guess you guys are a step ahead here! It comes out commented in G Code after the slicer, so I am a bit confused were to define it? 

 

G91 ; Put in relative mode
G1 Z10 ; Lower bed by 10mm
G90 ; Put back in absolute mode
G1 X0 Y0 ; Zero (home) the X & Y
M0 Click To Restart ; Pause and wait for the user
G91 ; Put in relative mode
G1 Z-10 ; Raise the bed back up 10mm
G90 ; Put back in absolute mode

M204 S1000
;BEFORE_LAYER_CHANGE
G92 E0.0
;[layer_z]

 

Will appreciate your help.

If you use slicer 2.2.0 you can slice the model, go to the preview screen and using the slider on the right add pauses or colour changes using the little plus icon attached to the slider. If you right click it you can add iirc m600, m601 or insert some custom gcode. Then when sliced again. The slicer will insert the commands for you. 
No need to post process or edit the before/after layer settings.

Neophyl, 

Thanks for your reply! I have used the filament change pause, but for some reason, it doesn't work the same way as manually pausing the printer. 

The right-click is not working when I add an instance of filament change? I was able to add a 'range' (image below) and I was hoping to see an option to add iirc m600 and m601 but I can't.

Am I on the right track here?

Not quite. The new feature is on the layer preview slider:

You can enter multiple gcode lines to the same location if you want.

I'm having exactly the same issue, stuck in a loop. The new feature is pretty much useless. Color change works, however. Firmware 3.8.1
