@tbrummel This is the intended behaviour so it's not really a bug, although it may be undesired for some. Starting with this release, official Prusa profiles have this feature turned on by default, so you don’t have to set it up. Timelapse mode is only useful for shapes with many layers. This video shows a use case. I hope your printer supports it! A feature teaser from Josef https://twitter.com/josefprusa/status/1208063594950266881. Is there a simple solution maybe? Chroma will provide an error as it is expecting a value after the G4 command (Chroma does helpfully tell you a recommend value). As you already know, the print looked like crap. When you say "Yes", then the printer extrudes more filament just before going back to the object to print! #6 Paul Arden, Sep 23, 2019. wHack Well-Known Member. Very spiffy indeed. I noticed that several of the gcode solutions posted above were generating errors in the current prusaslicer release. Triggers images based on time, layer change, or pause. Thanks again and keep up the great work . Slic3r has the ability to insert custom G-Code at the point of every toolchange, and this G-Code is always inserted if a tool change event occurs. 14. @bubnikv, only the M600 was added in Slic3r PE 1.42 alpha. Manually pause bya the lcd works. The new release of PrusaSlicer brings an updated (adaptive) elephant foot compensation, which automatically detects thin lines in the first layer and makes sure not to over shrink them. Copy link Quote reply Collaborator bubnikv commented Sep 1, 2018 @YuSanka is working on a UI similar to the Prusa Control. New PrusaSlicer 2.2.0 (video about new features) SLA Hollowing (Knowledge Base) Bundled profiles for 3rd party printers; Automatic Variable Layer Height ( Knowledge Base) Save to SD/USB, eject (Knowledge Base) 3MF thumbnails; Adaptive elephant foot compensation (Knowledge Base) Insert pause/ custom G-code at a certain height (Knowledge Base) On Prusa printers it lifts the nozzle up a bit and moves the extruder to the front. Closing. I somehow thought this topic was about changeing filamet at a specific height! to your account. Also, displaying the ETA to the next @pause would be wonderful, so I can plan when I need to be near my printer again. If removable media is in, save to USB and eject buttons will automatically appear in the software. The M600 aka "color print" was implemented in Slic3r PE 1.42 alpha to be released soon. Trying to manually pause the printer from the LCD didn't worked either. I would love to see this as well. When inserted int PrusaSlicer under Printer Settings->Custom G-code->Before layer change G-code, this code compares the current height to the height at which each segment begins (multiples of 10mm at the start of each layer. Hello, thank you very much for sharing, I downloaded this nearly 4 months ago and this has been very helpful. Alpha build that adds this feature is available https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/releases/tag/version_2.2.0-alpha1. Since this is being worked on, I figured I'd ask here if the bug relating to color change extrusion will be fixed as well. M105 only returns the temperatures to the console and M0 doesn't seem to turn off either the hot end nor the bed heaters. 0mm - 5mm = 0.25mm layers, then 5mm - 10mm = 0.15mm layers). I thought minimal layer time would print a layer at the set print speed, then pause and wait the remaining minimal time until it started the next layer. This page explains a useful trick to use Slic3r to use manual filament swaps in lieu of multiple extruders. Go to Printer Settings > Custom g-code and enter the code into the Before layer change G-code section. Well actually: You could do a pseudo filament change of course. @YuSanka is working on a UI similar to the Prusa Control. Using "Change Filament" does not (at present anyway) leave easy access for inserting nuts, magnets, blades or things to be smuggled, and replacing the ejected filament is not only a (very minor) inconvenience but also an additional opportunity to accidentally do something damaging to the print. I just started using the @pause command so I can change filament at a crucial layer. code(G1 Z1.200 F7800.000; PRINT_COLOR_CHANGE M600 G1 E2.28810 F2400.00000 G92 E0 G1 X-21.336 Y-1.755 F7800.000) It does not pause at this tho. The Prusa firmware only supports a subset too. Step 1 Configure Settings Part 1 . It will most likely be part of 1.42. Set Extruders to 4 (settings from Extruder 1 will be copied to Extruders 2–4) Change Retraction when tool is disabled settings for Extruders 1–4. This bug has been there for a long time -- and I suspect it's a firmware thing. Could you share how you set prusaslicer ? Would be even better to have something like this for inserting magnets: It is now possible to add a color change in PrusaSlicer 2.0, but it would be great if also a simple pause could be added like in the example above. But I can't seem to edit this section. If this were done in GCode it's not clear to me how the Resume function would work. Try various amounts above or below the starting value and pay attention to the Z seam. This code is thanks to this post, which I've slightly modified. I thought minimal layer time would print a layer at the set print speed, then pause and wait the remaining minimal time until it started the next layer. 3D Printing with the FlashForge Creator Pro and PrusaSlicer (Slic3r) This article describes how to use the FlashForge Creator Pro with the open-source PrusaSlicer (based on Slic3r), by means of a configuration bundle I created. Anyone else that can verify if the M600 works or not on their machine? If you want to see what kinds of results I get with my FFCP + PrusaSlicer, check out my makes on Thingiverse. Just though a great feature would be the ability to see where the pauses are, for example a marker in the Z-position slider or such. Looks like we'll see this soon. However this forces you to have a single layer thickness for this color (gaps). Lets me really speed up prints by only using thin layers where detail is needed. We’ll occasionally send you account related emails. By clicking “Sign up for GitHub”, you agree to our terms of service and Use G10 style temperature G-code when adding all other temperature commands (e.g., on rest of layers or layers with temperature changes set) if the firmware flavour is RepRapFirmware. Most of the time, it doesn't matter. The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered: The firmware for my Atom2 printer includes a Pause/Move and a Resume command. Oh yeah. code(G1 Z1.200 F7800.000; PRINT_COLOR_CHANGE M600 G1 E2.28810 F2400.00000 G92 E0 G1 X-21.336 Y-1.755 F7800.000) It does not pause at this tho. But for some detail work, it may. Also, displaying the ETA to the next @pause would be wonderful, so I can plan when I need to be near my printer again. Dezember 2020 Prusa Research Leave a comment. PrusaSlicer takes 3D models (STL, OBJ, AMF) and converts them into G-code instructions for FFF printers or PNG layers for mSLA 3D printers. Are there any plans to implement this? The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered: This can be done using conditional g-code. 12. Successfully merging a pull request may close this issue. Adding M125 support to the firmware may be a further improvement. to insert an embedded nut) rather than to actually change colors. Remember Murphy's Law*. PrusaSlicer lets you define different regions of your model to be printed with a different layer height and automatically smooth the transition between them. pause length: 1000ms park X: 234 park Y: 190 feed rate: 9000. This can be used to print basic multicolored models. It would be great to have M601 - Long pause for inserting magnets or whatever. Most of the options accept an argument, like --layer-height 0.2 or --perimeters 3. You signed in with another tab or window. Anyone else that can verify if the M600 works or not on their machine? The Resume command lowers the printhead to where it was and simply resumes printing. Too much PA may result in a gap at the seam. https://www.prusaprinters.org/color-print/, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF1SdIR-Kow, [Feature Request] Insert pause and filament change at specific layer height, Prusaslicer 2.0 Colorchange enhancement idea, No pause icon in layers preview view if printer is configured as multimaterial, More options for the layer points instead of only "filament change", https://twitter.com/josefprusa/status/1208063594950266881, https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/releases/tag/version_2.2.0-alpha1. The Move part raises the printhead about 4 cm above it's current position; this makes it easy to change filament colors or replace a near empty reel with a new one. you can continue the print with a push on the button at the printer. Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. Please see this for good technique for introducing a pause in the print for embedding magnets or nuts. To give the first layer a larger surface area to stick to the bed, you can adjust the layer height to below 100%. Either way, that would be a firmware modification and not something related to the implementation in slic3r. 0mm - 5mm = 0.25mm layers, then 5mm - 10mm = 0.15mm layers). Too little PA may result in a bulge at the end of the perimeter before the layer change. automatic variable layer height. Ignore me please. to your account, I would like a button to add a pause at a specific layer height for embedding objects in 3d prints, possibly a button next to the button that adds a color change. Good luck with your prints. As a workaround you could use the filament change code M600. For this, I am adding some custom G-code in PrusaSlicer. Or add a custom G-Code after layer change: Thanks victy, I've never checked out the M600 command. Howevere there are some boolean options that work as simple flags, like --wipe or --avoid-crossing-perimeters. M1; user stop It works both for FFF/FDM and SLA machines. I wanted to use such feature to insert a lens in my print so I don't have to glue 2 parts to make my magnifying glass. The printer guides you through the filament change. Copy link Quote reply tbrummel commented Sep 4, 2018. You signed in with another tab or window. Don't know if the Pause At Layer has the same issue. The values from this table will override both, the default and adaptively generated layer heights, but not the interactively modified curve in the Adaptive layers tab.

I tried the colorchange pause in prusaslicer which generates a M600. Try something like the following in your "Layer change g-code" (this example will pause at z=15 mm): For more info, the macro language is documented here. It's compatible with any modern printer based on the RepRap toolchain, including all those based on the Marlin, Prusa, Sprinter and Repetier firmware. Littleman. So far I use Creality Slicer (old version of cura) and this works but my feeling is prusa slicer can give more control on what we print such as for example pause an n Layer that give me time to integrate nuts in my print. I just started using the @pause command so I can change filament at a crucial layer. Shame, looks like there was a setting in PrusaSlicer 2.0.0+ in "Printer Setting" in the Custom G-Code section that would allow us to put this code in as a temporary workaround. The printer automatically pauses the print as soon as it reads the color change in the G-code (M600 command) and prompts the user to proceed with the filament change. Step five and possibly final step. M109 S[first_layer_temperature] ; wait for extruder temp: M190 S[first_layer_bed_temperature] ; wait for bed temp; now print a line of filament to prepare extrusion: G1 F1800 E3: G1 Y40 E20 F1000 ; prints a line in the front: G1 Y40 E20 F800 ; prints a line in the front; Done with the dancing :) G92 E0 ; Set extrusion distance to 0 Star 0 Fork 0; … a script … The problem with manual Gcode edits is the possibility of mistakes. If something doesn't add up or a layer number of something like 15 shows up at a z height of 2 mm printing 0,20 mm high layers, don't worry. We’ll occasionally send you account related emails. PrusaSlicer. It also works with Mach3, LinuxCNC and Machinekit controllers. It's compatible with any modern printer based on the RepRap toolchain, including all those based on the Marlin, Prusa, Sprinter and Repetier firmware. M109 S[first_layer_temperature] ; wait for extruder temp: M190 S[first_layer_bed_temperature] ; wait for bed temp; now print a line of filament to prepare extrusion: G1 F1800 E3: G1 Y40 E20 F1000 ; prints a line in the front: G1 Y40 E20 F800 ; prints a line in the front; Done with the dancing :) G92 E0 ; Set extrusion distance to 0 Either use the Prusa tool for multicolor print: https://www.prusaprinters.org/color-print/ The key parts to look at is {if layer_z==1.2}; Pause to insert objects. Manually pause bya the lcd works. Once you have chosen your layer, go ahead and find your way back to that code part which you pasted in the section for After layer change G-code.. Change the number 45 (65, 85) to your desired layer number.. I think one nice thing to have would be a time estimate to each pause just as you get when you insert color changes. thanks for your help. Step five and possibly final step. You can prepare prints with color change directly in PrusaSlicer. You also lose varying temperature by layer (which is not necessarily essential though). Closing. If something doesn't add up or a layer number of something like 15 shows up at a z height of 2 mm printing 0,20 mm high layers, don't worry. Once you have chosen your layer, go ahead and find your way back to that code part which you pasted in the section for After layer change G-code.. Change the number 45 (65, 85) to your desired layer number.. I don't know any new feature other than filament change to pause at a specifiy height. needed? Note: This guide assumes that PrusaSlicer/Slic3r has already been successfully configured for your printer. This code is thanks to this post, which I've slightly modified. Slicer G Code Last Post RSS kelsey-harley (@kelsey-harley) Eminent Member. Sorry! When an M600 is encountered, the printer stops, changes filament, and then asks if the filament has been changed successfully. We are discussing this feature with the firmware team. Successfully merging a pull request may close this issue. If there was no tool change in a layer, it will ‘top up’ the priming tower to maintain it unless there are no more tool changes in the rest of the print. Makergear M2: Initial PrusaSlicer Configuration. ednisley / PrusaSlicer - config.ini. Putting in an "Insert Object" function, once it's debugged, is a really good idea. {if layer_z >= 15 && layer_z < 15 + layer_height}M600 ;pause{endif} For more info, the macro language is documented here. This, obviously, is bad news - you have to be quick cleaning the tip of extra filament or it will be dragged into your print and ruin it. For those who don't get it like me, minimal layer time slows down the print speed so the entire layer takes at least as long as the minimal time to print.
