UM2 fans minimum pwm to start?

Posted · UM2 fans minimum pwm to start?

I bought two um2 fans to my ultimaker distributor to test a fan cap.

The think it's that I thought (erroneously) that um2 fans, like umo+ fan, would start at 10-20-30 etc. But I need to have kickstart option enabled (thanks to amedee firmware experimental) and a 100-102/255 so they even start spinning.

So my question its. Does um2 firmware has a higher minimum pwm to compensate this?

Also I must say that I'm quite disappointed with the airflow they do. My dual 40x40x20 fans make almost triple air at max pwm (they also are almost the double in price).

    I asked this a month and a half ago.. ANYONE knows the answer?

    I just installed a um2+ hotend on other umo+ (this time all original) and the same happens.

    I saw a marlin command but I don't find it on any marlin ultimaker 2, so I'm clue-less

    Does UM2 has a FAN_MIN_PWM hidden on the firmware? This it's a bit nuts...

    I've found here:

     

    // When first starting the main fan, run it at full speed for the// given number of milliseconds.  This gets the fan spinning reliably// before setting a PWM value. (Does not work with software PWM for fan on Sanguinololu)#define FAN_KICKSTART_TIME 200#define FAN_KICKSTART_MINPWM 20

    Thanks men!

    @Amedee just released a new experimental branch to have FAN_MIN_PWM so my problems are forever gone for any kind of fan I use (and I use 3 machines with different fans).

      • 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
