Auto cooling.. cura 4.8 win.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Auto cooling.. cura 4.8 win.

i'm currently tuning my part cooling settings, and i think i found a bug.
i got a pretty good cooling setup where i'm able to get away with only 20% cooling on 8 sec layer times up to 45deg overhangs.
and i like to print with somewhat okay minimum speed at around 20mms.
So i adjusted my regular/maximum fan speed threshold to 8 sec. and my minimum layer time to 10 sec and min speed 20mms
On my test tuning model i get around 10-11 sec layer times and i would assume to fan speed would be at 20%, but thats not the case.. 
cura adjust my cooling speed to max set speed at 65 and stays that way all the way up to layer 73. then it adjust the fan speed down to 20%  even when the actual layer times are around that 10-11 sec mark..

anyone knows whats going on here ?

      • 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
