Show current fan speed in Printoid

By default, OctoPrint is not able to track the current cooling fan speed. It follows that, Printoid can not display the current fan speed too in its interface.

But there is a solution by using the TopTemp Plugin. The integration is available since Printoid v17.03.

INSTALL THE PLUGIN

1. Open your OctoPrint web interface in your web browser.

2. From the settings of OctoPrint, go to the Plugin Manager.

3. Then, click on the + Get More button.

4. Search and install the Top Temp plugin

5. You can also install the plugin from this link: https://github.com/LazeMSS/OctoPrint-TopTemp

6. Then restart your server when requested.

CONFIGURE THE PLUGIN

The plugin will track the current fan speed by intercepting all the M106 gcode commands, then it will maintain and expose the fan speed value to all clients (OctoPrint and Printoid for example).

1. Open your OctoPrint web interface in your web browser.

2. From the settings of OctoPrint, go to the Top Temp plugin settings

3. From the tab bar, open the Custom tab and select Cooling fan speed

4. Then configure the cooling fan speed as follows:

5. Save the changes

CONFIGURE PRINTOID

There is nothing to configure in Printoid, the plugin will be supported automatically.

If you want to check if the current fan speed is properly received by the application, you can open the Plugins page, then select the Top Temp plugin. If the current fan speed is displayed after few seconds, that means you’re all done!
