PC USB print pauses on large footprints

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · PC USB print pauses on large footprints

Hi I'm using a Rigidbot printer (based on reprap). It has  like a 10" build plate. But for some reason Cura keeps pausing when I'm on the 3rd layer, (sometimes the second). It stops in different locations and even if I swap parts (that are the same rough shape) it continues to stop. At first I thought it might have been the cable so i replaced that but still getting the same result. The tallest print I've made is over 8" in height so I know it's not a duration thing... I don't know. I'm not sure what to do...

    Another group mentioned that perhaps too many commands are being sent before completion? Reasoning that the long slow paths are desyncing with PC.
    They also mentioned there might be a way to break up gcode on long moves in Cura when slicing. Is that possible?
