fan switch off

Recommended Posts

Posted · fan switch off

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.
