Cura 2.x beta - Fan always on?

Recommended Posts

Have you guys encountered any issues with the cooling fan always getting turned on? Even if "Enable cooling support" option is turned off in the cooling section of cura? It seems like my fan still started on my print at the "Start fan at height xx" height on two different models/gcodes I made last night. It's normally not a problem to have my fan on but it was tripping my thermal runaway each time.

I suspect it's some setting in the layer times, where my layer is printing faster than my minimum layer time so it is slowing down the print and turning fan on instead. If this is the case though why wouldn't turning the fan support off override this?

Any suggestions? I'm going to try again after work tonight.

Can you verify this in the gcode?

Use a text editor like Notepad and search for M106 commands in the .gcode file.

If there are none, thens its something your printer is doing. Otherwise, what version of Cura exactly are you using?

Otherwise, when I turn off Cooling in Cura 2.3, I don't have any M106 commands in the generated gcode.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
