G-code for turning fans off after a given time

Recommended Posts

I figured it out my self

 

This is my ending script in Simplify3D:

 

G28 X0 ; home the X-axis

M84 ; disable motors

M140 S0 ; turn off bed

M106 S255 ; set fan to full speed

M109 S50 T0 ; wait until heater is 50°

M104 S0 ; turn off heaters

M107 ; turn off fan

 

Now after printing is done it sets the fans at full power until hotend reaches (cools down to) 50° then shuts of heater and fans.

 

I pretty sure my printer wont be ubducted by aliens if the fans are left on after printing is done, but I don't like things in general to be in motion or in use more than necessary ?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
