    Have you seen this new video series from O'Reilly that Richard Horne put out...aka Richrap an youtube? It is $60 but the free videos have some good info as well. I think it might be worth it if you are serious about learning the ins and outs of S3D.

    https://player.oreilly.com/videos/9781491961230

    EDIT: Want 50% off of that price? Use coupon code WCYAZ it works as of right now and gets the price to only $29.99. Cheers!

    Is this a theoretical thing ... like "too much money"?

    Just curious.

    Ive been using Simplify3D for a couple weeks now, and finally put together a Post-Processing Script to be able to Pause and change filament. This was compiled from a few different answers I found, and each had some benefits and issues. This is intended for use while printing from USB. Hopefully this may help someone else searching for a solution. The example code pauses at layer 4, then again at 8 for filament changes. You can copy and change the layer number at the beginning and end of each line to match what you need. I comment out the script when not in use (preceed the lines with a ;), and modify as necessary when I do need it.

    Thanks to those who posted code (I probably couldnt find the sources again if I tried!) originally. It was a great starting point to get to what I needed.

    Code:
    {STRIP ";   postProcessing,"}
    {REPLACE "; layer 4," ";move away and pause \nG1 Z10 F1800 \nG1 Y10 X10 F3000 \nM84 S0 \nM0 \nM84 S60 \nG28 X \nG92 E0 \nG1 E-1.7500 F900 \n; layer 4"}
    {REPLACE "; layer 8," ";move away and pause \nG1 Z10 F1800 \nG1 Y10 X10 F3000 \nM84 S0 \nM0 \nM84 S60 \nG28 X \nG92 E0 \nG1 E-1.7500 F900 \n; layer 8"}
    Basically it works like this:
    Replaces the Layer X header with the code to do the following, then replaces the header.
    G1 Z10 F1800 - moves Z 10mm accelerating to 1800mm/s
    G1 Y10 X10 F3000 - Moves to position X10 Y10 on the bed (front left corner) accelerating to 3000mm/s
    M84 S0 - Disables Stepper Idle hold timer. This keeps the motors locked so you dont move the axis on accident. Hand feed the new filament until you have the color desired.
    M0 - The actual PAUSE.
    M84 S60 - Reset the Stepper Idle hold to 60 seconds
    G28 X - Home the X Axis (in case of a moved axis, though it shouldnt since the steppers are locked)
    G92 E0 - Sets current Extruder Position to 0
    G1 E-1.7500 F900 - Retracts extruder 1.75mm decelerating to feedrate 900mm/s
    Then it returns to the last position over the print, and begins again.

    Not specific to the Mk2 at all. Can be used on a Robo that supports M600 command for changing filament and an LCD. I've actually used the following in the S3D post processing script to trigger a filament change at the 6th and 10th layer. Similar to what Josef is doing really.

    {REPLACE "\n; layer 6, Z = " "; layer 6\nM600\n; layer 6 "}
    {REPLACE "\n; layer 10, Z = " "; layer 10\nM600\n; layer 10 "}

    I'm not sure what my settings were but this FFF process just cut my print times in half. Def need to test this tonight.
    Thank you.
