Revision to Connecting and configuring fans

David Crocker

The gcode command to set the fan speed is M106 Pnn Svv where nn is the fan number (default 0 if the P parameter is not present) and vv is the required speed. The speed can be expressed either in the range 0 to 1, or in the range 0 to 255. A value of 1 or less will be assumed to be in the range 0 to 1. A value of 0 corresponds to off, and a value of 1 or 255 corresponds to full speed.
 
FAN1'''FAN1 is set up as a thermostatically-controlled fan by default because it is typically used to control the hot end heatsink fan.fan.''' To use it as a normal controlled fan, you must first cancel thermostatic mode by sending '''M106 P1 H-1'''.
