pausing to change filament.
I have never tried this, but am assuming it is possible.
I have only one extruder.
If I pause this what happens does the filament stop extruding /
How long do I get to make the change?
Can I tell it in the start gcode at what layer to pause at, or is it done elsewhere/
I have just got back my printer from being fixed. There they put some filament to see if it works again, now, as it looks like there is no more of their filament, I put my own one. Well, it does not extrude. I hope this is helpful.
You can use this setting to choose which layers to pause on.
You can also pause at any time by hitting the Pause button. While paused, you can move the printer around as much as you need to and it will go back to the correct position when you resume. Here's a relevant article.
The articles are great Thanks.
It says "pause at" a layer. Does it pause BEFORE or AFTER that layer number?
Does it pause BEFORE or AFTER that layer number?
Neither; it pauses at the beginning of the layer(s) specified. Wiki has been updated to indicate this.
