Pausing a print at a specific layer

by nipnbite

How do I pause the printing at a specific layer?
My intent is to deposit a nut into a cavity, then continue printing to encase the nut to prevent it from falling out of the pocket.

How to configure bed layout in Slic3r?

by arkadi9

The answer I have end up with:

In Marlin:
// The size of the print bed
define X_BED_SIZE 210
define Y_BED_SIZE 209

// Travel limits (mm) after homing, corresponding to endstop positions.
define X_MIN_POS -16
define Y_MIN_POS -13

in Slic3r:
Size x: 209 y:210
Origin: x:-10 y:-6

I am probably off by 2 mm in x. Looks like these values in Slic3r are half of the offset.

This combination have placed center correctly.

Hi everyone. I have been trying to figure this out for a while and not getting it.
My bed physical size is:
X: 15 to 210
Y: 13 to 209

See bed shape.jpg it shows what is configured in Slic3r for bed shape.
However if I allow Slic3r to auto place large items it puts them outside of the printing area.
In laytout.jpg you can see what I had to do manually to have printed object to be placed in the center of the print bed.

Could anyone please explain what is it I am doing wrong?
