gcode "Pause" not working on Ender 3 Pro

  • I used Cura to place a Pause at two levels of my print to change filament (color) during a print. I included off print x,y positions and a 30 mm extrude command to clear the extruder of old filament.

    The printer stops printing, goes to the assigned x,y position and waits about 15 seconds, then extrudes the current filament and goes back to printing. No time to change to a different filament.

    What am I doing wrong??

  • What Firmware for Ender 3 V2 to will support the Gcode for Pause?, it is not practical for long print to keep looking and pausing...

  • @admin I have the same issue - how can I change the filament color at certain layer using Cura 4.7.1 (latest). I have stock Ender 3 V2 firmware 1.0.1. Both Cura plugin (pause at height' and 'Change filament' dont work...

  • Dear @Watsonian000

    This is set by the printer's motherboard firmware and cannot be changed. You can pause and change the PLA.
