Ultimaker 3 Auxiliary 12v Power


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 3 Auxiliary 12v Power

Hello.

I have built a acrylic enclosure for my 3 extended. I want to add a fan to it to circulate air through the printer when printing PLA. I was wondering if there is a hookup on the board for auxilary 12v power, and what kind of power it can handle. The fan I am going to install draws 0.45A or about 5.5w.

Of course I can use an external power supply for the fan, but it would be nice to cut down on wires.

    I don't know the answer to your 12V question - but keep in mind that the provided power supply is already scratching at it limits (at least during dual printing). 0.45A in addition could be too much (better safe than sorry...)

    This is kind of what I expected. Do you have specs on the power supply in the printer?

        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.
