Dynamic cooling during overhangs

Sat Nov 05, 2016 6:53 am


I'd like to see a feature, where cooling activates only when layers start to build a beveled surface (overhang but not a bridge). Something like the "Bridging Fan Override". S3D would detect a slope or overhang and cools the print while printing the slope. After printing this slope fan turns to default value

configurable values:
- start cooling X layers/seconds prior to printing slope
- cooling fan speed during overhang
- delayed stop of cooling after overhang is printed

- maybe this: automatically control fan speed based on overhang angles

for example:
- printing a letter Y: cooling starts only in the second half of printing
- printing letter X: would cause fan speed to be always on
