So I just printed my Bullseye mod for my cr-10. But now I have a problem, when my hotend is trying to heat up it can't, because the cooling is to powerful. I know this because when I stop the fan with my finger it starts heating up. Is there any way I can make the fan slow down when printing (because it's not printing properly either) and total stop or go at a minuscule amout when heating up.

Help is Appreciated

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to 3dPrinting.SE! In the slicer you can limit the amount of cooling fan ... even turn it off if you wanted to. $\endgroup$ – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 May 26 '19 at 15:20
  • $\begingroup$ Make sure that the part-cooling fan is connected to a port that can be controlled by G-code. The port intended for the hot-end fan is often (but not always) hard-wired to the power supply. $\endgroup$ – Mick May 26 '19 at 18:34

    $\begingroup$ @0scar thingiverse.com/thing:2759439 Alec do you have it installed too high where it is blowing on the heater block instead of the nozzle? Also what slicer are you using? $\endgroup$ – T. M. May 27 '19 at 3:35
  • $\begingroup$ Also, always use a silicone sock on your heater block. $\endgroup$ – towe May 28 '19 at 11:26
