Cura Raft Fan Speed settings bugged?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Raft Fan Speed settings bugged?

My printer (no UM) wont print a raft without the fans on. Trying to archieve this i ticked every button in Cura to get them running. Still Cura gives a M107 command (which means "fans off") in between each layer of the raft in gcode. What am i missing?

Thanks in advance

    I can confirm I'm having the same bug.

    My printer is a Dagoma Discovery 200. An old model from a french startup that has a "small" flaw in it's design : it has one fan for cooling both the part and the hotend.

    It's a PLA only printer, so it's not a problem to blow on the plastic all the time. But when the fan is shut down (M107) the heatsink on the ED3V6 hotend became hot, the heatbreak doesn't do it's job and plastic get stuck in the hotend, resulting in failed prints.

    And Cura 2.6.1 is setting the fan off when printing raft, even with the parameters to set a fan speed during raft is put to some value that makes sense.

    I'm currently editing gcode by hand to prevent this so that I don't have failed prints all the time, but it's a bit annoying ^^"

    Where do we reports bugs, on theses forums, or on the Cura GitHub page?

    Absolutely post on github - you get so much better results and faster results and faster discussion (if desired by the programmer) if you post this as an issue on github.

      • 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
