Fan speed at 200 in UltiController


Recommended Posts

Posted · Fan speed at 200 in UltiController


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.

    100% is equal to 255 (guess rpm)

    Just some kind of calculation as usually... :-)


    No, not rpm. 255 is simply the biggest number which can be stored it one byte. ;-)

      • 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
