I wanted to print a new Fan Duct. It went good for like 2 hours. But then suddenly the printer had a problem with it's temperature. Normally it holds the temp pretty good, in this print on 205°C ±0.6°C.
But suddenly it was going up to 210.3°C and then down to 199.6°C and then I got a Printer halted. kill(). I mean, I am happy that this safety feature exists and that octoprint is shutting off the outlet immediatly, but I really don't know why the temp was suddenly going crazy.
What did you already try to solve it?
Nothing yet. I only checked of the Silicon Sock was sitting right (it was)
This was the second time with this exact model. I tried to print this a few days ago and I got this error. So I made a quick check and the connection to the thermistor looked fine. After that I printed 6 or 7 other things and I thought it's fine so I tried this print again. And now I got the same error. I am not really sure where the problem is, it doesn't sound like a PID Problem. I'll check the thermistor again. I really hoped I could print the new fanduct before I need to take the old one apart.
Edit: I'll also try an Octoprint Update, I saw that I was still on 1.7.2 and not on 1.7.3
Sorry, that I didn't answer. @PrintedWeezl I used the same gcode both times. I sliced it again and this time I lowered the temperature by 5°C so I print on 200°C instead of 205°C. I am not sure if this was the problem. It's still printing at the moment.
Oh no, I forgot to activate it. But I am watching the print all the time at the moment and I saw something interesting. When it prints top layers, the part cooling fan turns off (I think for a smoother surface), but everytime when it does this the hotend temp has this bumps, also when the fan turns back on you see a drop down in temp. So I think it could be that the part cooling partially cools the hotend, too.
As I said before I started the print on 200C instead of 205C and it printed all the way through. The new fan duct is better in terms of the direction of the air. But it looks like that I should do PID Autotune anyways. Because, with the newer fan duct, the the cooling of the hotend fan is "better".
