Marlin and air assist.
02/08/2018 at 5:24 PM #1437
I am using a converted 3D printer for my laser. In this case I am using a RAMPS 1.4 board with Marlin firmware.
This means that I am using M106 and M107 to control fans. In addition to the RAMPS board I have a fan extension board.
This board can control 2 additional fans using the M106 command and the P parameter so M106 P1 S128 sets the
fan connected to P1 at 50%. So for air assist I would like to use this option to provide air assist.
Perhaps a setting, in the Device Setting window. could be added for commands added at the beginning and ending of the gcode.02/10/2018 at 3:52 AM #1438
We do have a plan to add “user switches” at the very least. We could support a power level for them as well, if appropriate.02/10/2018 at 5:57 AM #1439
chippackage You did not say what controller board you are using. In case it’s the RAMPS 1.4 you can get the fan extension board here : http://www.geeetech.com/reprap-ramps14-rrd-fan-extender-p-683.html
It will take a little while but at least they have it.
