Not sure where I should post this.


I'm looking to add an G-code to my ending script that turn off the fans after 3 minutes but can't figure it out.


And an other question; I usually look att this site for G-codes https://reprap.org/wiki/G-code Witch one would you recommend?

    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 ?

    Yesterday i flashed my printer with tinker, and now at the end of the prints, the fans turns on 100% but the temp stops and stays at approximately 76 degrees.

      • 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
