Layer dependant pause, how does it work ?
May 08, 2020 03:04PM
I often use a layer dependant pause, to change the filament color.
But now I see strange behaviour with multiple objects on the build plate.

.I., this code : {if [layer_num] == 7} @pause;

This will pause the printer after completion of layer 6.

This works ok with slicing any single object.
Also, if I load an object and I hit the + (more), the printer will pause after layer 6, regardless how many copies I make with the + function.

But: If I load multiple objects (not copy them), the printer will pause earlier.
If I load 2 items, it will pause after layer 3
I I load 5 objects, it will pause after layer 1.


How does this work with multiple objects ?

Apparently, it is counting the layers in each object separately.

Yes, I guess.
But that makes it cumbersome to work with...
