Fans turn on despite being unchecked in Cura 2.1.2

Recommended Posts

I tried it with my RepRap style Printer, and it omitted the M106 command from the gcode when I unchecked that box.

So it could be machine/json file dependent.

Also, look through that fan-off gcode for M106 to ensure its in there or not.

Also, does the fan turn on immediately or after printing the first few layers?

P.S. I just tested it with the Ultimaker Original printer profile and the M106 255 is on ;Layer:1 with the Fan enabled and nowhere in the gcode when I uncheck the 'Enable Cooling Fans' box. Let us know what you find.
