Cura is not turning on fan during print

Posted · Cura is not turning on fan during print

So I posted in a 6mo old thread to get help and need an answer now. I have a machine that has 2 layer cooling fans. I'm using Cura 4.4.1 . fans havent been engaging, thus giving me crappy quality. discovered that I have to set the Cooling Fan Number to 0, even though one would figure if ya have 2, put 2. so I did. and obv that messed it up apparently. yay Cura. so I set the number to 0. no difference, wont do another print til I get an answer. I really dont wanna have to turn em on in the tune settings.

    Could you be more specific regarding the gcodes?  Which gcodes are required by your machine to turn on both fans to say 0%, 50%, and 100%?


    What gcodes does cura create when you set cooling fan number to 0 and to 2?


    If you are not familiar with any gcodes, here is a good place to start:

      • 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
