Cura 3.4.1 Cooling fan stops/starts intermittently

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.4.1 Cooling fan stops/starts intermittently

Anet A8, Octoprint. During print cooling fan stops for a second then starts again intermittently. Fan LED on the board turns OFF in that moment and than turns ON again. Analyzed g-code Cura generated and found multiple blocks with M107 - M106 commands. So Cura does turn fan off/on during print. Is that normal?  How to disable it?

The bridging code can alter the fan speed and so if you don't want it to do that you will need to fiddle with the bridging settings.

 

A new feature (not yet available) can alter the fan speed when printing skins over support.

Bingo! Apparently hidden experimental option "Enable Bridge Settings" enabled by default. When I revealed and unchecked it I didn't find any M107 codes. Fan stays ON all the time during print now. Thank you so much!

It's not enabled by default:

 

                "bridge_settings_enabled":
                {
                    "label": "Enable Bridge Settings",
                    "description": "Detect bridges and modify print speed, flow and fan settings while bridges are printed.",
                    "type": "bool",
                    "default_value": false,
                    "settable_per_mesh": true,
                    "settable_per_extruder": false,
                    "settable_per_meshgroup": false
                },

The default value is false so you must have enabled it yourself.
