    Angry Can't manage to force my print to standby while I insert a nut - Prusa Slicer and Tro

    I use Prusa Slicer on a Tronxy XY-2 pro. I believe its firmware is of type RepRap, as I had to input it into the Prusa Slicer initialization questions, but I'm not sure.

    I tried three ways, none of them work.
    1) `M117 L0 E0` from and nothing happens, it chains the G1 movement steps flawlessly.
    2) `M600` nothing happens neither. From
    3) `G1 X10.000 Y200.000 E0
    M105` and nozzle does a micro stab into the plastic, get stuck, struggle for a few seconds, then continue the printing. Also from

    They produce no feedback at all on the printer GUI asking me somehow to resume the print. It keeps displaying real time temperature and estimated time remaining as if there was no cut in the process.

    Here is the G-code of the file I tryna print . You guys can visualize it at least with the slicer Simplify3D but it's not useful to this problem I guess. Pause has to happen before drawing the 50th layer, which corresponds to altitude Z10.15mm on my piece.

    What instructions should I put instead please?

    Does it work with your machines ? It's a tiny test piece about 15x15x15mm

    Hey there!

    One thing to check is whether your printer firmware is actually RepRap, as you mentioned. If it is not, some of the commands you're trying to use may not be compatible with your printer.

    In terms of pausing the print, there are a few different methods you can try. One option is to use the "Pause at Height" feature in your slicing software (Prusa Slicer, in your case). This will automatically insert a pause command into the G-code at a specific layer height. To use this feature, you'll need to determine the layer height at which you want to pause your print (in your case, layer 50 at Z10.15mm), and then enter that value into the "Pause at Height" field in Prusa Slicer.

    Another option is to manually insert a pause command into the G-code at the desired layer height. The command you'll want to use is `M0` or `M1`. When this command is encountered in the G-code, the printer will stop and wait for the user to manually resume the print. To use this command, you'll need to open the G-code file in a text editor and find the layer at which you want to pause the print. Then, insert the `M0` or `M1` command on a new line immediately following that layer.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions or if you need more assistance.
