I’d say you’ll have a decent chance of tripping a machine fault if you deactivate the internal fan.
Great to know. In previous posts I found of yours it always seemed you were running it at fewer CFM.
I have it on a 0-10v speed control so depends on what I am cutting
Ha, Well played Aeva.
Just as a general thought on the subject of this topic, I don’t think that after a 2 year wait anyone is going to be pulling apart a Glowforge any time soon. We’ll all just be happy to finally have it, lasering away.
Only thing I’ve noticed is that the internal exhaust fan doesn’t spin up right away when it starts cutting. There’s a delay of around 5 seconds sometimes. I think the suction from the external fan may be confusing a rotation or flow sensor.
There are no visible downsides to this, though: the smoke continues to exhaust just fine, and after a few seconds the fan does come on and everything is normal.
