Pause at height


Recommended Posts

Posted · Pause at height

I am brand new in the 3D printing world. I just bought an ender 3 and have exclusively used Cura 4.0 for my slicing software. I have completed maybe 50 prints so far, but every so often during a print the nozzle just pauses and "waiting for user" is displayed. Nothing moves on until I am forced to push the button on the ender 3. Of course if I'm not around to push the button, the 210 degree nozzle just melts all the previously printed material, ruining my print. 


From what I've learned it appears this has something to do with a "pause at height" setting or plugin or whatever it is. I'm not trying to do anything difficult or out of the ordinary. I'm not even wanting to switch filaments during a print. All I want is for the printing to complete without pausing. Plain and simple. Is this possible? How do I make the change? Will the changes stay for subsequent prints? Also what would cause this on some prints but not others? I've read about g-code. I'm guessing that has a lot to do with any possible pauses during a print. I don't even know where to find the g-code, let alone mess with it. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    When slicing ..have you got a little symbol like a dirt pick next to save to file?

    Maybe you played with post process settings..it stays all the time until you clear it.


    Goto post process and X any out..turn off.

    Easy to do and forget to turn it off.

    The symbol at the bottom is the only indicator its on in the background.
