Regular Fan Speed at Layer

Posted · Regular Fan Speed at Layer

Hi, i'm using Cura with an BQ Hephestos 2 but the part is not sticking to heatbed. I checked that the problem it was when the colling Fan starts working and i would like to reduce the fan speed or just activate it at 5mm height. So i configured the "Regular Fan speed at Layer" setting, but nothing happens, the fan starts working just after the first layer. What i'm doing wrong? another thing i realized is that i configured 4 slow layers but it starts to work faster after the first layer too. I'm not finding the problem, so i decided to ask you some help. You can find a snapshot of parameters in attached files. Thanks in advance.

    If the layers are taking less than 10 seconds to print, it will use the max fan speed. Otherwise it should ramp the fan speed up from 0 to 100% over the first 33 layers.

     

    FYI - my personal Cura includes an option to start the fan at a layer > 0 which the standard Cura doesn't provide. The Cura developers rejected the contribution. I can't remember why now, it was so long ago. Anyway, you can find my releases at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s43vqzmi4d2bqe2/AAADdYdSu9iwcKa0Knqgurm4a?dl=0

      • 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
