Cooling off in Layed back mode

Recommended Posts

Hey

I want to play around with the steppermotor-current again. In the UM-Wiki it is said that one should not tune the potentiometer while running in Laid-back mode without cooling.

Does that mean I...:

- ...should not print anything while tuning the potentiometer (which would be crazy)

- ...should not turn on the printer while the fan is not attached (that would make it impossible to directly measure the reference-voltage on the steppers. i would have to take them out and measure one after the other)

- ...can turn on the electronics but make sure that neither the fan nor anything else is moving (as this may lead to some part of the electronics heating up and failing due to lack of cooling)

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
