How to start printing from where it stopped?


#1

So my partner didn’t realise his laptop had unplugged and the battery pretty much went flat. Obviously when this happened the printer stopped printing. We were just wondering if there is a way to start printing again from where it left off? Only have the option to pause printing in the program. Play is not a highlighted option

it is not that easy.
if you use cura or simplify3d there is a option which is called “start from position” but be careful, before starting the print, the firmware let the printer get to the home position of all axes. This may cause a damage of the printer or your print.
if you have to replace the print from the bad it´s really hard or not possible to get it on the same position again (don´t know how nice your print should be).

if you just print with snapmakerjs you could edit the gcode, search for the height of your object Z = 52,35 mm for example and clean the lines before except the lines for other settings like extruder/axis speeds…

Thanks for your reply Chris.
It’s just a shame that that option to continue from where left off was not incorporated with the snapmaker1. Now it’s just a waste of time and filament, especially when my partner restarted the print and then ran out of filament right near the end of the print :pensive:

Ouch. Yah, we all know what you mean! Hopefully this function works well with the SM2…
