Pause at selected point for filament switch


I would like to have a feature in the studio which will allow you to select a point in the printing sequence to pause the print so that you can perform some step before resuming.

The main thing would be to switch filament colors, but I can see wanting to stop for other reasons. Ideally, the filament switch process would allow for an off-print purge of the old melted filament before resuming printing so there is a clean transition.

This feature could also be re-used in sequencing filament splices with something like the Mosaic Palette.


I went to the forum to see if it was possible to pause and switch filament on the flux, after my daughter asked me to make this one for her:

So here is a +1 for this feature.


Jim, @proclaim, was asked a few times to provide this capability in Flux Studio but it may be low in their priority list. In short, there is not a straight forward way of doing what you want yet but read the following 2 threads for some ideas.


I really like this idea and I think this feature is quite important!!!
We’ll try to see where can we fit in this function in the next few release.

Hang in there!


Nice to know that it is a feature on the way. :wink:
