Wait for User error driving me crazy

Recommended Posts

Posted · Wait for User error driving me crazy

This "Wait for User"  issue is driving be crazy.  My printer is a Crealty CR20 using Cura 4.4.1 running under Windows 10 ver 1809 64 bit.  This printer works well and has done hundreds of prints.  I am trying to make a rotating tool holder. This is the biggest print I have ever done on this printer. It fills the build plate. The tool holder is in 3 parts. The top is full of holes and features and it printed perfectly. The base is solid, and the long print lines seem to have brought out this error. Every few minutes the printer stops with "Wait for User" showing in the printer's LED panel. Pushing the control knob starts the printer again. However a few minutes later it stops again, and again I have to push the control knob on the printer again to start the print. This continues throughout the print. It is impossible to live with, I can't leave the printer for more than a few minutes, and this is a long print job.  


I have read about this issue emerging with long print lines in a model. I tried lines and zigzag in the Cura profile for bottom layers and first layer. No change.  This is a very frustrating issue. I have included a picture of the top part with holes ( no problem printing this ) and the bottom part that is solid and causing this "Wait for User" error. 


The log file is included as well. See the date 2020-02-24 for the log associated with the problem print. I really hope this can be resolved, and also really appreciate any help you can give me.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
