Fan off at height?

Posted · Fan off at height?

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.

      • 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
