Flow Thermostat plugin doesn´t work


Recommended Posts

Posted · Flow Thermostat plugin doesn´t work

As the Topic says- my Flow Thermostat plugin doesn´t seem to work. I added it to "Enabled plugins" but the temperature doesnt change and some prints start to ooze at small areas. What am I doing wrong?

Some data:

Print Speed 50 mm/s

Cooling fan: enabled

Layer: 0.1mm

    I got the same problem with the Wood plugin, it doesn't change the temp, as far as I can see, the gcode is completely the same with or without the plugin enabled..

    Just for the case you did not yet find this post: http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/2454-cura-13064-plugins/&do=findComment&comment=21281 (post no. 8)

    It is a version of the FlowThermostate-plugin which works with Cura 13.06.04+

    You might also try this updated Wood-plugin: https://github.com/Dim3nsioneer/Cura-Plugins/raw/master/Wood1.1.py

    However, you should consider it as beta...

    Try my update, which solves an issue with the recent Cura updates, by simply disregarding higher feedrates than the "max" calculated by the FlowThermostat plugin. This makes the "printing speed" entry critical, but it ensures protection against high feedrate spikes.

    get it on
