Just a pause. There are two ways that I’ve found. The first one is to manually pause it, but the chances of catching such a long print at the exact right time is not very high. Trust me on that. ;-). So I’ve found a much better way (that I know at least works on the Monoprice Maker). I switch my Cura view to Layers View and mark down the exact layer number where I want to switch. Then open the saved *.GCODE file that you send to the printer (in a text/code editor) and find the layer number in the code. There you paste in the following:

M117 "Pausing Print" ;
M85 S0; Disable Timeout
G90 ; Absolute
M400 ; Wait Buffer
M401 ; Save XYZ
G91 ; Relative
G1 Z60 ; Move Up 60
G90 ; Absolute
M117 "Change Filament" ;
M400 ; Wait Buffer
M25 ; Pause SD Print
M117 "Change Filament" ;
M400 ;
M117 "Resuming Print" ;
M402 ; Goto Saved XYZ

I recommend researching this for your particular set up just in case it varies, and also trying it on a smaller print, since this is a big one. :-). But it should work just like that. Best of luck. Do let us know how it goes and what works for you.
