Mysterious pause and wait for user


Recommended Posts

Posted · Mysterious pause and wait for user


I have created a fairly time intensive print, ~13 hrs on my ender 3.  I did not purposefully put a pause in the Gcode but every time I print this specific file the printer pauses andd wait sfor used input.  

I have sliced it again, and still have the same pause at a height.  How can I remove this from my gcode?  How can I prevent this from happening again?


Thanks in advance.  I can share the gcode if needed.

    In Cura yiu can add Post Processing Scripts, Pause at height is one of them. Once added, you will see a little icon on the slicer screen. Until you click the icon and not delete the script, the printer will stop in every print you create in Gcode.


    "pause at height" or other things can't be put by accident in the Gcode-file... 😉

    Are you having this issue when printing over USB or from SD-card?
