[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.

NIIIICE!

Any chance this will make it to regular build?

No, it has already been rejected by the Cura guardians.

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
