Dual Cooling Fans SKR2 Ender 5 Plus


Recommended Posts

Posted · Dual Cooling Fans SKR2 Ender 5 Plus

I currently have an SKR2 in my Ender 5+.


I have 2 part cooling fans wired to the Fan0 and Fan1 ports on my board. I have been trying to configure Cura to control both fans during the coarse of a print, but I haven't been able to figure out how to configure this. Can someone please point me in the correct direction?

    As far as I know the cooling fans are configured to each extruder.  When an extruder switch is called for then the cooling fan switches.  If there is no second extruder then the second fan (Fan1) won't be controlled.  The speed of the second fan wouldn't be accessible without a second extruder.


    You could do it with Search and Replace.  If you know what layer you want the second fan to turn on then:

    Search = ;LAYER:30

    Replace = ;LAYER:30\nM106 S255 P1

    then another Search and Replace to shut it off

    Search = ;LAYER:35

    Replace = ;LAYER:35\nM106 S0 P1

    Search and Replace accepts multi-line strings with the commands separated by "\n" (backslash + lower case n)

      • 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
