yep, its my first draft so im not entirely satisfied but it is working so haven't had a lot of motivation to change it yet.

Thanks!!! My 24V Berd air cooler kits came in today thanks to @Vice Chief. Printing now to install on my N1 and N2 Plus.

just a heads up.
My max air pump was no longer pumping this morning.
Pulled it apart and found the diaphragmss shaft was melting the motors eccentric thingamabob. (see picture)
So new pump is installed and I added additional high quality PTFE grease to the diaphragm's shaft. (Magnalube G is what I have)
Time will tell if this helps.

Thanks for the reminder, I just opened all 4 of mine and lubed the same point using superlube grease. https://www.amazon.com/Super-Lube-92003 ... B0081JE0OO

FWIW, I wish there was a ball bearing alternative, but cost $$$$

I have 4 of these pumps, only had recently installed one for permanent use as of March, but it ran for well over 100 hours straight without failure. I fully admit this is a weak point of the pump design (a plastic molded bushing) as the main crankshaft. I did open mine and lube them before installing, and again, since your failure, I just out of caution lubed the ones installed and printing at this very moment.

This is what I was think of for some time now.
Now a lot of the pain in the neck work is finished.
I'm ordering as soon as I get some info from you experts!
So my questions are:
1. 12V or 24V pump?
2. If 24V how does one remap the gcode?
3. If 12Vwith E-Switch and I place the pump on the upper deck behind the cable chain where is the closest 12V?

Thanks guys

I went with 24v connected to HE2 and recompiled motion board code from this source https://github.com/ABH10/Marlin-for-Raise3D-N-series to remap fan pins. Note the branch I used (bltouch) breaks some functions on the touch interface, i dont know if the others will as well.
I haven't dug into the 12v side maybe others can comment on this but if you using the eswitch you can use the 24v pump and existing 12v fan source to toggle the eswitch.


Can you share how you remapped the GCODE controlled parts cooling (M106) to the HE2 pins? I am extremely new to modifying printer firmware. I have the 24V berd-air ready to go w/ a JST-XH connector, I just need to figure out the firmware part.

I'd also like to maintain the official Raise 3D filament runout sensor and the thermal runaway protection as well. I am starting with the 1.1.6 baseline Raise 3D code: https://github.com/Raise3D/Marlin-Raise3D-N-Series

Easy, all done in pins.h file (actual file is pins_RUMBA.h). That file says what pin goes to what output and the reason there are a boatload of those files is for all the different boards the firmware could run on. Remember, the Raise 3D mainboard is derived from the RUMBA schematic.

I've attached my file so you can just replace the stock one, but you should know where this stuff is and know what is being changed.
"//" is a comment in the code so the text after that is ignored.

Code: Select all

// Heaters / Fans
//
#define HEATER_0_PIN        2
#define HEATER_1_PIN        3
#define HEATER_2_PIN        -1  //6 disabled because HE2 used for Berd Cooler
#define HEATER_3_PIN        8
#define HEATER_BED_PIN      9

#define FAN_PIN               6     //7 //6 moves to HE2
#define FAN1_PIN            -1    //8

Thanks JetGuy, sounds simple enough! I downloaded your pins_RUMBA.h file and ran a compare against the one I pulled from Raise 3D's master on github. It's quite a bit different. Now I'm paranoid that maybe I'm pulling the firmware source from the wrong place. I've attached my version of the pins_RUMBA.h file here for you to look at. Your version has more comments and seemingly Raise specific code, and mine doesn't have that.

Best,
Kareem

I've compiled the code and tested it out, works great! Thanks again.

has anyone come up with a front mounted fan for cold end cooling that includes the berd air max mounts?
