Main fan issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Main fan issues

Hi guys,

Awhile back I replaced the temp sensor and Nozzle/ hotend.

It seems that the wires have a tendency to interfere with the main fan occasionally depending on where the print head is. I have tried to reposition them multiple times, but wonder if anyone else has this problem or has tried to remedy it. I may try to slip all of them through a piece of heat shrink tube or other wire loom type think to keep them out of the way or interference. Since I am likely going to take it all apart again and reposition things is it worth changing anything else related to the main fans etc...

    I plan on taking it back apart and making sure the wires are routed properly and free from damage. Does anyone have a picture of the wires coming down and to the fans, temp sensor and heater block? I just want to see if I can get a good idea of the proper slack and placement.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
