    Has anyone had a crash (kind of like "Wham! stomp stomp stomp @T1 position, drop tool") when cancelling a print job from the print paused position? I think it's hanging on the Z and skipping steps. Maybe the "paused" position should be moved out away from the tool line.

    I haven't had this but I have had a case where it simply refused to pause at all and I had to do a reset instead. The other thing I am wondering is what is the best method for getting the tool off in those situations. So far homing C and holding the tool when it pops off is the only useful way I found.

    I think Homing C is the only way. Which makes the Paneldue at the machine a problem since it cannot home C.

    Yeah. I'm beginning to regret the Paneldue purchase. Maybe the way to go is Raspberry Pi with touch screen that points at the Duet web interface.

    Can't it be coaxed by recompiling the source to achieve the requirement? It's always seemed like PanelDue support has been a distant second in importance to having the mainboard perform its job.

    Simply write a macro with "G28 C". I've a PanelDue on my FrankenPrinter but have not added one to this platform yet. I use it less than I thought I would but when I do, I use it for the pause/restart/cancel function and/or to move the print out of the way.

    I created two macros to use on the PanelDue

    Home All
    Code:
    M98 Phomec.g			; Home C
    
    M98 Phomey.g			; Home Y
    
    M98 Phomex.g			; Home X
    
    M98 Phomez.g			; Home Z
    
    G1 X150 Y-50 F15000		; Park
    
    and Home C
    Code:
    M98 Phomec.g			; Home C
    
    Using the Home C macro is the only way I can get C to home correctly, whether it be from PanelDue or directly from the web interface.

    I've noticed the pause function waits until it finishes a couple lines of gcode before it pauses. So if the printer is currently doing like a long, slow perimeter it will seem like it's just ignoring you.

    If I have to stop a print, my key requirements are Home Y, then Home C. I'm tempted to setup some hardware buttons for Stop and this HomeY, HomeC step. Clearly pause and resume would also be good candidates.

    In this case it wasn’t that, it even went through another toolchange after I had pressed the pause. I haven’t had it happen since though.
