- Cooling fan recommended
- Metal construction (Aluminum cold zone, PTFE transition, advanced design tip)
- Precise .4mm tip (same tip/nozzle as previous Ubis 13)
- Nichrome wire heater core is more efficient and offers slimmer design than competitors
- PEEK insulator protects the heat core
- 100% made in the USA
- Extremely accurate thermistor (1% 100k)
- Max temperature of 270 C
- Compatibility: Printrboard Rev F and Rev D
Fan Wiring Instructions:
Use a fan to direct air flow to the body of your Ubis 13S Hot End. Improper cooling can cause overheating and jams. Adding a 30mm fan to your Ubis 13S Hot End will help reduce clogging by keeping the heat sink cool.
To complete these steps, you will need the following:
- Ubis 13S Hot End
- 30mm Fan
- Dual Fan Adapter Cable (Rev F5 Printrboard users)
- Printable Fan Shroud for the Ubis 13 Hot End
- Screws (x4) - In this example, we are using 3/4" length #4-24 pointed steel sheet phillips pan head screws.
Print & Attach Fan Shroud
Of course, it is a good idea to print the fan shroud that you will need before you go disconnecting wires and removing your hot end from the bot. Use four screws to attach the shroud to the fan.
Wiring for F6 Printrboard Users:
- Printrboard "HOTEND" --> Hot End Power Extension (red & black - existing) --> Ubis 13S Hot End Power (black)
- Printrboard "T-EXT" --> Hot End Thermistor Extension (white & black - existing) --> Ubis 13S Hot End Thermistor (clear)
- Printrboard "FAN1" --> Fan Extension (red & black) --> 40mm Fan (existing)
- Printrboard "FAN2" --> Fan Extension (red & black) --> 30mm Fan
With the Rev F6 Printrboard, you can control your 40mm fan as you have previously: enabling cooling at a specific layer height or leaving it off for the entire print. The 30mm fan (plugged into "FAN2" on the Printrboard) will activate any time the hot end meets/exceeds 50C temp.
Wiring Option #1 for F5 Printrboard Users: Both fans controlled simultaneously
- Printrboard "HOTEND" --> Hot End Power Extension (red & black - existing)--> Ubis 13S Hot End Power (black)
- Printrboard "T-EXT"--> Hot End Thermistor Extension (white & black - existing)--> Ubis 13S Hot End Thermistor (clear)
- Printrboard "FAN"--> Fan Extension --> Dual Fan Adapter
- Connect the 30mm fan to one of the male ends of the Dual Fan Adapter Cable.
- Connect the 40mm fan wire (existing) to the other male end of the Dual Fan Adapter Cable.
Now both the recently added 30mm fan and existing 40mm fan will be powered by the "FAN" fet on your Printrboard. To send a manual command to enable both fans, enter "M106" into your Send line in the Pronterface UI. Enter "M107" to power off the fans.
IMPORTANT: As soon as you power ON and connect via USB, open the Pronterface UI in Cura (⌘P for Mac) and enter the command "M106" to turn your fan on. It's easy to get distracted in the middle of getting a print started. So, go ahead and get that fan going first thing.
It almost goes without saying, the best thing to do is to load the model and get to printing right away. It is not recommended to just let your hot end (metal or ceramic) sit at temp without printing for an extended length of time.
Wiring Option #2 for F5 Printrboard Users: Independent control of both fans.
(Two separate fan extensions and header pins required.)
If you have a Rev F5 Printrboard w pins, you can control your fans separately. You will need two separate fan extensions - one for each fan. With the 30mm fan (hot end fan) wired into the ISCP and hot end power pins, the upper fan will power ON as soon as the bot is powered ON. You can issue M106/M107 commands to control the 40mm (print fan). You can also include 'cool at height' controls.
*NOTE: SOME HACKING MAY BE REQUIRED.
- Solder ICSP header pins onto your Printrboard. Click here for video instructions.
- Remove power wire (red) from the female end of your fan extension.
- Plug the remaining black cable, still inside of the wire housing into ICSP1.
- Plug the free power wire (red) into the 12v constant pin in your HOTEND connector.
