[FEAT REQ] Fan speed override for overhangs


Recommended Posts

Posted · [FEAT REQ] Fan speed override for overhangs

Most overhangs come VERY nice but there is a part about 250mm long with a mere 45-decree overhan on its side and that comes out terribad, massive droopping.

I manually tried to fire up the fans at full during those and it had some positive effect, sadly it overcooled the part and it peeled from the bed.

Simple idea: Overhang-settings active? If yes, enable fan-speed override. If possible, to fire up the fans BEFORE they reach the desired area, a settings box.

    I can't remember for sure, I've had quite a few offerings rejected. I don't make a big deal about it, just move on.
