  • long pause between pushing print and starting to print

    I have an Ender 3 V2
    When I push print there is a long pause before printing starts. Sometime I give up and start over, SD card out, pre heat, SD card back in and push print again.
    It goes to the print screen but seems like a long time to start printing.
    I have the Smith - Marlin software for the BL touch (10 Jan 2021 update)
    I use Cura Version: 4.8.0
    Is this normal?
    Thanks

    How long? Does the LCD display any message(s)? Do you always preheat?

      2 to 10 minutes. Never starts at the push of the button.
      No message, but it does switch to the print screen.
      Always preheat.
      Should you always start after going to "Auto home"?

        I find Autohoming is a good idea. It at least makes sure the printer knows where it's at.

          I think that is always wise. My printer gets lost on occasion if I don't do that.
