Fan off at height?

Recommended Posts

Fellow ultimakers,

Ok I might be missing something here but I cant figure out how to turn the fan off at a certain height in Cura. I know it can easily be turned on at a certain height or layer but I want to do the opposite. I'm printing some Colorfabb HT and the bigger layers are higher up (think inverse pyramid) so warping becomes an issue. I still need cooling on the lower layers though. I've done it manually and it prints nicely but Id love to be able to just leave it going knowing the fan will turn off. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I guess you will have to wait until the Cura devs introduce the functionality the TweakAtZ plugin had, i.e. to change a certain setting like the fan speed at a certain height.

This should imo be part of the Curaengine, including the possibility to change the layer height at a certain height as e.g. Simplify3D allows for.

    • 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.
