Printing Rafts using v3.1

Recommended Posts

Several times while printing a raft I get a message on my display that says wait for input. Pushing the displays button allowed me to continue printing a number of times. A t one point my machine stopped responding to the push button. Printing without a raft works well. Any ideas?

Nope, it sounds like your printer interprets one of the gcodes as a pause command.

Welcome to the forum, b.t.w.!

It would be very helpful if you could mention which printer you're talking about - and which printer profile of Cura you use... (as a minimum...)

My printer is the BQ Prusa I3 Hephestos. I am using the fine profile. I had an old firmware so I updated it with their latest. Same thing. I never had this issue with older Cura versions eg. 15.04. I have also tried two different laptops, one running Windows 7, the other running Windows 10. This has happened on different print files also. My next try will be to save the G-code and print it using 15.04.

I switched to v15.04. V15.04 was not able to display the complete G-code. I sliced the STL file with v15.04 and it printed without a problem. I again tried v3.1 and of course I received wait for user input multiple times. The size of the print is 130 x 94 x 27mm....
