Fan on/off issue at slicing

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

yesterday I had a very strange situation...

I sliced and started printing this helmet mount for my action cam

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:22212

with following setup:

0.15 layer hight

infill 20%

support everywhere

support values in x/y/z modified, but not available any more (something like x/y 1.5, z 0.1 fill 20%)

During print I recognized because of very ugly layers that the fan has been disabled. enabled it manually, I recognized a few minutes later that it has been switched off again...

Print aborted, what a mess...

I checked the gcode and it seems that cura placed an M107 command every time, the support starts to fill the strap holes in the part - so 3 times off. There was a M106 too but only a few lines before M107.

Next, I sliced the part again with modified support values and checked the gcode again... now, everything was ok - M106 instead of M107...

Unfortunaltey I overwrote the initial gcode accidentially so I can´t post it here.

I just wanted to document this issue in case somebody else has the same.

@ Daid, maybe a bug... sorry for not providing more info :-(

    • "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.
