How to get my Ultimaker 2 rear fan like the newer version where it turns on at 40c?

Also what else is been upgraded on the Untimaker 2 v2?

Thank You for the help in advance :-D

    If you don't want to hack together something yourself you'll need the new Ultimaker Electronics board .. which will be pricey, not worth it for this if you ask me..

    Agreed, not worth the cost. As far as I know that's also the only real difference (don't quote me on that though). There is no "Ultimaker 2 v2". This is just a small incremental change just like there have been numerous small changes made to the Original over the years.

    It would be much cheaper and easier to change the fan to the Sunon fan linked somewhere around here. That way it's basically silent even when running.

    I recently got the UM2ex, and this doesn't happen on mine - Am I missing a setting to tweak, or have the boards been changed since the new units came out???

    Would be very handy to be able to turn off when the unit is not printing!

    Take a small switch. Superglue it to the fan and wire it in, so you can manually turn it on or off...

    Actually this is implemented on a firmware that is not yet released from what i know.

    Thanks for the reply - Hopefully they will release it :)
