Pausing a Bad Print-Cura

Good Afternoon,

I am new to 3D printing (1 month) and am using the Mini in my classroom for my STEM classes. Recently some students (and myself) have had a few bad prints, and had to “pause” the prints instead of ending up with a spaghetti bowl on my print bed.

My question is getting the tool head to raise back up. For the life of me I can’t get the machine to go back into the ready position. I have just let the hot end cool down to zero, along with the print bed and then went about getting rid of the error. There has got to be something I’m missing, it’s probably very simple but sometimes the simple things are the hardest to figure out. :wink:

Any help would be appreciated.


Hmm… I usually just cancel the print rather than pause. The interface should then allow you to control the hotend. Usually when the print turns bad, there’s no recovering…

If you are using a server to control the printer (ie. Octoprint), you could possible add an end script or cancel script to move the nozzle up and to the back of the bed.

Thank you. I will try it.
