Ultimaker 2+ Extended Fan Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm using 3D Printer Ultimaker 2+ Extended for about one year. Recently, I find that the two sided small fans from nozzle does not spin during printing. I tried roll back to the older firmware version. But it still not spin at all.

I believed there is a hardware problem. Something wrong with the fan driver on hardware. May I know which part of hardware controls these fans? You may give me the part number, so that I can trace electronic signals and fix. I am a electronic engineer.

Thanks.

Best Regards,

Okay, I have addressed the problem. The fans are driving by 24V PWM signals named FAN PWM, in which is similar to LED PWM. The PWM signal works fine. However, one fan is dead, since two fans are connected in series, therefore both fans are not spin.

I'll replace the bad fan with a new one. These fans are rated at 12Vdc, 30mm x 30mm x 10mm.

Thanks.

    • 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.
