M106 - Set Fan Speed

thermal Turn on the fan and set its speed EXTRA_FAN_SPEED

Description

Turn on one of the fans and set its speed. If no fan index is given, the print cooling fan is selected. The fan speed applies to the next block added to the planner, so it will not take effect until previous moves in the planner are done. Under manual control with an idle machine, M106 will change the fan speed immediately.

Notes

M106 with no speed sets the fan to full speed.

Turn off fans with M107.
