fan switch off

Recommended Posts

I just bought an Ultimaker 2 after I was just a little fat up with the constant adjustments of my home build K8200 printer.

I printed a few items and noticed that the fan remains running will it switch off after cooling down or can you adjust the Gcode in Cura?

It prints very well but the results in high quality are not so good?

I see I can learn a lot by reading this forum.

The small fan in the back of the printhead will always be on.

The 2 side-fans will start cooling around the 5th-8th layer.

They gradually start cooling after the first 2 layers but it takes a few layers to get up to speed.

    • "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.
