Re: Duet FSR's Stuck at Min Stop

Well blow me down, dc42! That was it! I am in your debt, sir.

Re: Duet FSR's Stuck at Min Stop

Disconnecting the FSR's (one at a time or all at once) doesn't affect the behavior. On G32, the head moves to each of the probing points and stops about 5mm above the bed; it then immediately moves to the next probing point because it thinks the probe is triggered. When the routine completes, the he...

Duet FSR's Stuck at Min Stop

My Max V2 with Duet and FSR's is out of commission because the FSR probe is stuck at min stop. Probing is unsuccessful and generates an error message: "Z probe already triggered at start of probing move." Tapping the bed above each FSR lights the corresponding LED on the FSR board. Lifting...

Thermistor ADC H&L Values on Duet

I am trying to tweak in the LCD temperature readouts on my Rostock V2/Duet and have hit a wall. No changes I make to thermistor H and L values seem to have any effect. I have tried entering M304 and M305 commands from the G-code console in the Duet web interface, tried editing M304 and M305 lines in...

Re: BONDTECH EXTRUDER

I just bought Bondtech's Rostock mount. For the price (US$15) I couldn't justify the hassle of making one. If you want, though, you do have the option of downloading the STL for the mount. All you have to buy is the threaded inserts.

Re: Cannot Connect Through DWC

Re: OpenDACT(Delta Automatic Calibration Tool) - For Repetie

This issue is impart from a delay requirement on the program side. The first height measurement is checked assuming that the height is somewhere around the probing height(base is 10mm). So if the z height is initially off, then the program may send commands to quickly, causing this skipping to occu...

Re: OpenDACT(Delta Automatic Calibration Tool) - For Repetie

We seem to be in danger of getting lost in the weeds here. I was able to do a successful basic calibration in v2.03, but have had no joy with any version since then, whether basic, AI or HAI. I can make good prints after a manual calibration, so I would be surprised if there are serious mechanical i...

Re: Delta Automatic Calibration Tool - For Repetier Firmware

I am concerned about XY bed jiggle if you have the pucks sized to freely move in Z to trigger FSR's correctly. Yes, indeed. Building a three-point floating support system that has no perceptible slop yet doesn't bind is quite a trick. If you get it right on the first try, you must be living right. ...

Re: Delta Automatic Calibration Tool - For Repetier Firmware

For me, M112 sent from MatterControl executes perfectly, sent from Repetier it requires multiple resends before it executes. I also had to uninstall Repetier Server; it was playing merry hell with the COM port.

Re: Delta Automatic Calibration Tool - For Repetier Firmware

Rollie-- I was just running the basic calibration, using the default accuracy setting (.001, I think). I didn't think to save my height map; when I have some time, I'll re-run it. I only had to enter M112 G-code once, but Repetier had to do a couple of resends before the requested info came back. I ...

Re: Delta Automatic Calibration Tool - For Repetier Firmware

Success! XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode is the key for me. With the FSR logic inverted in firmware, the FSR's trigger with the lightest of touches.

Re: Delta Automatic Calibration Tool - For Repetier Firmware

The printer DID slow down as it approached the build plate, so I think it's reading the correct Z-height. I inverted the FSR logic in firmware. Now if I could just get the calibration to run again.

I'm getting ready to wire a new hotend, and I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on a good lead length. In the past, I've had a problem with short leads breaking from repeated flexing. I'd be interested in hearing what has worked for others. Thanks.
