Cura turns off fan after first object is printed

Recommended Posts

I am trying to mass-produce a certain part and I am having issues with the fan. The first part prints like any other part would: fan turns on after first layer and remains on for the rest of the print. The subsequent parts printed don't get the same luxury. The fan turns off for the first layer of the next object's creation but never turns back on. Any ideas? Any help is appreciated.

Sounds inprobable, but I did had a bug that disabled retraction after the first object in 13.06. So everything is possible really.

Can you check the final GCode for M107 (turn fan off) and M106 (turn fan on) commands? It should have a turn off at the first layer, and a turn on at the 2nd. (The first layer is printed with the fan off to make it stick better)

    • 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.
