Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

Reflashed the firmware, no change. Tried 1.1.1, and no change again, back to 1.1.6rev1 and still no change. Looks like the raise tech support is out of ideas too.

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

The original board had the light on too which makes me think it was operating just as well, I’m only out $70 or so for now which Isn’t a big deal at all. I’ll try re-flashing the firmware tonight. But my apprehension with buying another main board vs an additional printer is to buy it, and still be ...

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

There’s no change when I plug in the fan, or change the speed (or turn it to 0).

My board is the very old one, with one missing pin in the ribbon connector, if that makes a difference.

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

The light is perpetually on. It won’t turn off even when I set it to 0, and it stays on when the printer is freshly turned on too.

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

Yeah, I tried 100 too, and changing it around too to see if there's any movement in the blades.

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

I haven’t had the time to red lash it yet. I’ll do that after work this evening. But I noticed something taking pictures for the raise tech support. I set my speed at 49 in the tune menu. It shows 0/49. I plug in the fan, and it shows 49/49 but no movement. Having the fan plugged in before turning o...

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

Thanks for the response. It wasn’t your fault, you recommended the same as raise support, and there doesn’t seem to be a reason why you wouldn’t have been right. The leds above the fan outputs are on, and were on in the beginning, part of why this has been confusing for me. I’ll try re-flashing the ...

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

I purchased a new ribbon cable, tried this with the new breakout board, and still no working gcode fan outputs.

I think my most cost efficient solution may be to just buy a separate printer for PLA prints.

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

Just swapped out the boards and there was no difference. I saw there was a pin stuck in the extruder ribbon cable connector, and one missing on the extruder board, so I ordered a new cable too, but this is weird. The fans weren’t turned off in new firmware updates were they? edit: based on Jetguy's ...

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

Your detailed response is more than enough. $40 is an inexpensive enough fix for me, especially considering the time saved to just swap the boards. This printer has been a low maintenance workhorse for 4 years, so this is no big deal at all.

Re: N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

I was hoping to get the thorough jetguy response. I definitely don’t have the experience to do a board repair, but even if I did, replacing the breakout board would be much preferred. I’ll order a replacement, and hope my problem isn’t deeper.

Thank you, as always.

N2 Dual GCode Fan Stopped Working

I was trying to add on a gcode controlled fan to help cool down some recent production that needs to be in PLA, but I just found that my gcode outputs on the breakout board aren’t working. They used to work. The fans I’m trying to connect work fine in the extruder fan ports, and my current extruder ...

Re: How to Bondtec settigns differ to standard and does latests Ideamaker have bondtech settings Already?

Hey, sorry, I don't seem to be getting notifications. I have noticed I've needed to adjust my temperatures, but mostly to print hotter. I would run some calibration cubes to see if your extrusion is set right. I am running I think 97 flow rate for PLA and 94 for PETG, but almost all of my printing s...

Re: How to Bondtec settigns differ to standard and does latests Ideamaker have bondtech settings Already?

I really didn't make any changes. Just change the steps on the extruder as specified, then minor turning the flow rate as needed for the filament (which you may be doing already).

Re: Adjusting E-steps for the old Bondtech extruder

The old ones have different steps for left and right. It’s in the big bondtech thread, I also still have a setup from S3D at home so I can find it in a few hours

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

That’s a good idea. I zip tied the breakout board on, wrapped in silicone, it’s working but I can’t use the back inch of the build plate. I’ve modeled an adapter that will let me keep that board in the original configuration, just need to fine tune the hole placement. I have no interest in redoing a...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I just tried installing my dual direct, and it looks like it's not going to happen without a ton of rewiring, or making a new little holder for the breakout board. My breakout board doesn't fit in the bondtec little shield, and both the heater/thermocouple, and the fan wires are much to short to fit...

6172T14, but the other should work just as well. I also got 88155K63 but that just wants to unravel when you look at it.

Re: Heat Shields?

When people insulate their hot ends, the wrap the top too. Common materials are Kapton polyamide, mica, ceramic, and fiberglass. All are better insulators than brass or stainless. If you want to use metal, titanium would be a good option. But you can also use some synthetic high temperature gasketin...
