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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
