2.2.1 fan control

Sun Jan 11, 2015 1:21 pm

2.2.1 doesn't seem to generate M106 commands correctly. With the same .stl file and the same .fff file, 2.2.0 generates a gcode file that will turn on fan starting with layer 2 as expected, whereas 2.2.1 generates a gcode file that only briefly turns fans on before printing the last layer.

It appears to be working fine for me. If I set a first layer and second layer fan speed, they are placed in the gcode at the beginning of the first and second layer, just like I would expect. Why don't you post a factory file.

Hi Joe,

thanks for your reply. I've taken a second look at the problem and it turns out that my Per layer fan settings where as follows:
1, 0
1, 100
Until version 2.2.0 included, these settings resulted in the cooling fan starting at layer 2, but not with 2.2.1

I have changed my settings to:
1, 0
2, 100

Everything is working correctly now.

Again thanks.

Nicolas
