I wanted to test the "Pause" functions on my 3D Printer.
So I made this (light weight in plastic use and time), simple "stl" file.
All it is is a tube, 25mm height, with some small parts at 5mm heights stinking out.
Pause Testing. I wanted to test the "Pause" functions on my 3D Printer.
Then using Cura I asked for the "Pause at height" plugin to pause at a Z height, (and also move the nozzle for easier access/filament changing etc), in my case 5mm and started to print.
This worked very well as I expected.
Note: the headbed and the nozzle temperatures stay on while Paused.
Clicking the knob on the LCD12864 Full Graphic Smart Controller moved the nozzle back to where the Pause started and continued the print without any issues.
Then I tried using the LCD12864 Full Graphic Smart Controller Pause option.
This worked BUT:-
a) The nozzle stayed where it was Paused at. This causes a blob of plastic to be oozed onto the part at this position.
b) It takes a bit of time to select the Pause option on the LCD12864 Full Graphic Smart Controller and printing continues until the Pause is actually selected. This means that the Pause may be harder to control the actual position of.
Selecting Resume on the LCD12864 Full Graphic Smart Controller started and continued the print from the unmoved nozzle position.
