Cura Plugin change filament at z for Printrbot over usb

pauseAtZforRepetierv2.zip

most of us do not have LCD upgrade for out Printrbots so M0 command is not useful for us.
and of course we cannot change filament at z for another color like prusa i3 can do

now with this plugin for Cura, you can generate a G-code file and operate it by Repetier-Host and it will pause at height you set and go to a parking position you also can change wait for you to change filament with a screen message and then extrude the remaining of the previous for the amount you set , pause again to clear the parking area from filament and you can start printing again.
pretty much like lcd screen instructions of prusa i3
installation:
extract the file in Cura Plugin folder example "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_15.04.6\plugins"
