Pause.g is not working.

  • I posted earlier about my filament sensor not executing the pause.g

    but now I figured out pause.g is not working at all when a pause it triggered from interface or filament sensor. Just the M25 is executed but pause.g is not

    When I create a dummy pause.g macro under macros and call:

    M98 P"0:/sys/pause.g"

    the sys/pause.g executes fine so it is not an issue with the actual pause.g code.

    update: calling M98 P"pause.g" executes the file as well.

    Kinda stuck

    Update: tried rolling back to 2.02 and it doesn't work there either

    Update: Ran M111 P3 S1 and here is the log from Yat:

    I only see M25 and no sign of pause.g called.

    @core3d-tech it's very odd that pause.g is not working at all. In your example, when you send M25 does the pause.g action now happen at all? So the print just stops with no further movement? How about when you resume the print?

    I am also confused that you get a different response sending M25 from the console that clicking the pause button in DWC. What does the console report when you press pause?

  • @t3p3tony that is exactly what happens. all actions that result in M25 DO NOT execute the pause.g

    Like you said and as the video shows, the m25 will stop the hot-end but nothing else. None of the pause.g code is executed (I've also put a M291 in pause.g to see if it would pop up something).

    This applies to all pause actions:
    Pause from PanelDue
    Pause from Web interface
    Pause from filement sensor.

    The M25 you see in the log above comes from pressing pause (I've actually no called M25 directly from console). The log above is the output from M111 P3 (it captures all gcodes)

    I will try what @dc42 suggested and move things over to another sd card. That said, it did also delete the pause.g from web interface and recreated it to see it that made a difference yesterday. It did not.

  • @core3d-tech move all files to different SD card which made no difference. I took a video (shorter one this time) of the process

    M98 P"pause.g" DOES execute it properly.

  • Not got a upper/lower case issue have you? Does the system expect a Pause.g rather than pause.g?

  • @doctrucker tried that (renamed to Pause.g) did not change anything. Thx

  • administrators

    Can you confirm that you have put pause.g in /sys not in /macros ?

  • @dc42 confirmed. I did try to put a pause.g under macros to chain call the pause.g under sys. Didn’t help either

  • @dc42 any way to turn on full blown debugging?

  • @dc42 Okay found the solution (or I should say the cause to the problem). My printer, the crazy Delta one with a moveable bed, uses a 4th axis defined as U. Since it's defined as U it becomes part of the homing process. The problem is that U is used only a few times a year (mostly at shows) but runs hot every time after it homes.

    Because of that every print of mine starts with M84 U (to shut it down). This the cause of the problem.

    All code has DoFileMacro(gb, PAUSE_G, true); made conditional with AllAxesAreHomed()

    because of M84 U they are not and thus pause.g is not executed.

    I'll have to do something else to stop U from overheating.

  • administrators

    @core3d-tech, you can just send G92 U0 to tell RRF that U has been homed. I think making U invisible using M564 P3 may work too.

  • @dc42 Thx, M84 U followed by G92 U0 does the trick
