Fan speed at 200 in UltiController

Recommended Posts


recently I updated my firmware via Cura 13.06.4 (standard which is included with this cura version).

Now I recognized that the fan speed displayed at the Ulticontroller shows a value of 200 while printing.

Has anybody else the same issue?

Suggestions? Any hint appreciated...

That's all OK Drayson.

The 80% is what's giving you the speed of 200.

If you need 255 all the time you would need to set Min and Max at 100%.

If you look through your G Code you will notice a bunch of lines that start with M106 and finish with S(200 to 255).

Unless you need to have your fan running flat out all the time you could leave it as is.

For ABS I have Min and Max set to 30% with dual fans. Which gives a fan speed of 76.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
