Turn on fan before temperature setting?

Tue Feb 25, 2014 8:38 pm

Hello all....in all of my other GCode settings, I have the fan turn on before the temperature turns on...that way, the PID settings on the printer can learn how the fan's cool air affects the heating/cooling properties of the nozzle. Is there a way to have the fan turn on before the nozzle heats up in this software?

Thanks!

They were nice enough to do this for you. If you add a fan setpoint that starts at layer 1, it will automatically set the fan to that speed before sending any temperature commands. For example, if you set the fan speed to 50% on your first layer, the gcode will have that setpoint command before it sends the M109/M190 commands to stabilize the PID temperatures.
