When you have Auto Mesh Bed Leveling enabled on your printer, it's not possible to continue a failed print, is it?


Continuing a failed print has nothing to do with automatic bed leveling. It has everything to do with knowing which line failed, repositioning to resume from that point, and resuming from that line of code.

  • $\begingroup$ You may be able to G29 the surface of the print; my printers don't do G29; we set the Z manually. I would make a copy of the file, strip out the moves already executed, insert a G92 Z## where ## is the present Z position, and restart the print from there, with this edited file. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure this answer is right. The printer will no longer compensate in the same way, so if your bed was really tilted, the newly printed layers won't be in the same plane as the original layers. $\endgroup$ May 13 '17 at 19:43
  • $\begingroup$ @Ageis The compensation of the shape of the bed when using ABL is only active for a few mm's of your print if it has #define ENABLE_LEVELING_FADE_HEIGHT enabled. The height can be set with M420 Z<height> $\endgroup$
