Hi All, First I am new to these forums, but I would say my 3d printing experience is decent. I have 5 normal sized printers 2 x ender 3. 2 x tronxy 3a and 1 x cr20-pro, but I am asking about the latest purchase a Copymaster 400.
I brought the Copymaster 400 on sale so was cheap for a 400x400x400 printer. It’s running a direct drive extruder that is based on flashforge tech and the simplyfly 3d profile provided even says flashforge in it. I spent some time getting it to print with decent quality and it’s ok, but the filament cooling is very poor. I took it apart and it has a single fan that cooled the hot end and is split in half to cool the filament at the same time. No wonder it’s filament cooling is so bad. I am trying to add a 2nd fan and almost have something to try, but I still have the problem that it has no option to control the filament fan speed and I can split the hot end fan or take 24v direct and just leave it on all the time.
So I guess my question is this. What control board would be a good upgrade for this printer, What would I need to know from the settings to copy across, or should I look at a better extruder- hot end at the same time.
This is this is the current board.
The fan at J8 goes to the hot end and the 2nd fan is just a case fan. Neither of them could be controlled from simplify 3d that I could find.
Thanks in advance
