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)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
