Re: Micro pauses in print.

Fri Sep 14, 2018 12:36 pm

I'd like to add that I have been observing the same exact issue since upgrading to 4.0.
Makergear M2 Rev E.
Win7/64
Lenovo Core2Duo

Watching Task Manager, the CPU usage for S3D process drops to ZERO for the duration of the micro-pause.
No other processes rise up to higher CPU usage during the micro-pause.
Very frustrating because blobs have to be edited out with an X-Acto.
Anyone see a resolution for this?

I've seen this issue when a model requires bridging and the fan speed needs to increase. The system will "micro-pause" while the fan speeds up (causing a blob) then proceed with the bridge.

I doubt this is your full issue, but my workaround was to simply make the fan run at bridge speed throughout the entire print. It may not be ideal, but it removed all micro-pauses.

Thanks for the info. In my case,I have the fan speed pegged to 100% after the 5th layer.
Thinking about it, this pausing seems unrelated to bridging in my case.
I turned off USB going to sleep in power settings. Not sure if that will help or not.
