Is it safe to put the 2014 Q3 Firmware on my TAZ 4 that I purchased back in June (which I think has Q1 firmware?).
In looking at the code, I noticed a lot of changes revolving around a 2nd extruder fan. Does this mean we can connect a separate fan to cool the Budaschnozzle ? Any hint as to what connector the fan plugs in to?
After checking, my TAZ 4 has 2014 Q2, so there is not much of a difference between it and 2014-Q3. I was comparing Q3 with the Dual Extruder firmware, of which there are a lot of changes.
So, the question is, will there be, or is there already, a place to plug a 2nd fan (or in the case of a Dual Extruder that is setup for PLA, 2 extra fans) to cool the Budas in such a way that the fans are on whenever the Budas are at or above a certain temperature?
I tried the dual fan duct, but that doesn’t work very well since the Buda needs to always be cooled.
I’ve printed a separate fan duct for a 2nd fan on the left side of the extruder, and am now trying to determine the best way to hook it up, without it having to be hooked to 24 volts and always on whenever the printer is on.
There are some real issues with PLA and larger (longer - wider) prints and the fan(s). More on my experiences with this, later.
