RRF 3.01-RC10/DWC 2.1.5: Hotend Fan Visibility Bug?

  • Noticed an issue in the past few releases of DWC where the tool fan starts invisible at power-on but as soon as the tool is active it becomes visible in the status tab and the speed mimics the part cooling fan. What I mean by that is if drag the slider for the tool fan, the tool fan, and the part fan adjust to the new speed and vice versa (but the object model still has the speeds separated).

    Is there an issue with my config that would cause this or is this a bug?

    At power-on, only the part fan is visible.

    As soon as the tool heater is enabled, both fans become visible in the status tab.

    Here is the code for the heaters

    ; Heated Bed
    M308 S0 P"temp0" Y"thermistor" A"Bed" T100000 B4206 C4.276618e-8 		; define bed temperature sensor
    M950 H0 C"out0" T0 Q120 												; heater 0 uses the bedheat pin and sensor 0
    M140 H0																	; assigns H0 to the heated bed
    M307 H0 B0 A70, C100, D2.9 S0.8 										; 200308 Using PID Tune Bed Macro
    M143 H0 S120                                 							; Set temperature limit for heater 0 to 120C
    ; Hotend
    M308 S1 P"temp1" Y"pt1000" A"Hotend"   	; define E0 temperature
    M950 H1 C"out1" T1 								; heater 1 uses the e0heat pin and sensor 1

    M143 H1 S280                                  	; Set temperature limit for heater 1 to 280C


    ; Part Fan
    M950 F0 C"out7" Q500		; Define fan0 - Part fan on print head - 5015 fan
    M106 P0 S0 C"Part"			; Fan 0, Off on start, thermostatic control off.
    ; Hotend Fan
    M950 F1 C"out8" Q500			; Define fan1 - Hotend fan on print head - 4010 fan
    M106 P1 S1 H1 T45 C"Hotend" 	; Fan 1, On on start, thermostatic control on at 45c.

    And tool

    M563 P0 D0 H1 F0 S"Hotend"                    ; Define tool 0
    G10 P0 X0 Y0 Z0                               ; Set tool 0 axis offsets

    Here is an example of how the fan speeds match.

    And here is object model of both fans when the tool is active.

    "Tool fan" is an alias for "Part fan for the current tool". It defaults to Fan 0 when no tool is selected.

    Thermostatically controlled hot end fans are not user-controllable, so DWC doesn't show them.
