CURA Causing Blobs when pausing


Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA Causing Blobs when pausing

So I am new tp 3d printing.  My first print was a bracket that has two screw holes in a vertical wall.I am guessing because I did not have supports set up that Cura was pausing to allow layers to harden so that the overhang portions of the holes would not sag.  I am sure i can prove this by printing it again tp see if it pauses at the same location.  once it was past the holes it went back to no more pauses.  


My question is if this is in fact what cure is doing and is there any way to prevent the blobs when it pauses?  These pauses added about 1.5 hours to the print that cure never mentions ..


Below is the item I was printing

    Thanks for the .3mf file. I can't see anything obviously wrong with that yet. Could you please also attach the gcode file that suffers from the pauses. Thanks.
