Is there a way to have the part cooling fan turn on and off?

by GetaHobbie

As far as I can tell the hot end fan turns on with the power switch and goes full speed till I switch it back off. I'm used to my other printer that starts up the fan once the hotend reaches 65-70c and turns it off once it cools down.

There's a chance that I have the fan plugged into the wrong port. Ideas?

Want to replace your fans? Watch out, they are 24V!

by peter47_a

If you want somewhat quieter fans make sure you don't get any 12V. I chose SUNON KDE2404PFV2-11AB (40x40x10mm 24V= 11,9m³/h 5800RPM) for both the hotend cooling and board / power supply inside the base. So far they have been working great, however the noise is still coming from the fan in the base. I got rid of the washer though and replaced them with a small printed standoff so the fan won't touch the case.

Hey Guys,

Just got this thing up and running and am pretty impressed with it considering I snagged off Ebay for $99 bucks. I was wondering if anyone has a stl for the extruder arm? I have heard a few complaints about it breaking and would like to print a few backups.
