Layer detection
June 06, 2017 10:53AM
My repetier host excactly knows which layer is printed. It says so at the bottom : Layer n / nn

However, when I look into the Gcode, I can see z-axis positioning but that is not the same as layer hight.
My Gcode inserts a lot of extruder raises while travelling, so a number of absolute Z-positioning are not the same as the layer hight it is printing.

What should I do to insert custom Gcode at the place of the intended layer I want it in ?
Finding the first z-hight is not correct, I have found out .....

advice is appreciated.

Thomas

Tha could be an option.
I have no experience with Cura, so I will look at it, if my other Slic3r functions are present.....

It worked perectly
