Fan Not Working During Print

Hi all,

As above really, the extruder fan doesnt work whilst printing, but does when I fire M106/7. I have all the latest skeinforge settings from NopHead's Git Hub, maybe i dont have a box ticked somewhere?

Any ideas greatly recieved.

Thanks, Andrew

Have you searched your GCode for M106?

On the Cool tab of Skeinforge, make sure Activate Cool is ticked and the following set (as a guide):

Full Fan Speed (0-255): 255
Do Not Use Fan Before Layer (integer): 1
Force Fan on Bridge Layers: Ticked
Maximum Layer Time for Fan Use (seconds): 239.0
Full Fan Speed Below Layer Time (seconds): 239.0

I think there was a syntax error in the original cooling patch that referred to Below as Bellow but that is of no consequence functionally.

That should be all you need.

You need to get Skeinforge itself from my version on Github to work with my settings. It has the patched cool module integrated.
