Re: Duet 8.5 Groundwire overheating

Thanks, that's a very good explanation. I'm wondering if using 12 awg wire made it worse. I'm very thorough with tightening when installing but didn't think to go back and retighten. Now that I know about ferrules I will certainly use them. I noticed SeeMeCNC doesn't use ferrules on the Artemis and ...

Duet 8.5 Groundwire overheating

What's going on? I'm using 12awg power wires. Everything was tight and striped properly. None of the other wires were even warm, only the main ground wire to the Duet. The heated bed wires were fine. I've been using it over a week with no issues. I was 2 hours into the print when I smelled something...

Re: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

... The Z probe box turns red and shows a value of 1000, I'm guessing that means it's triggered. I am using 1.17e. I still haven't figured out the thermistor wire for sure. I think it goes to the positive lead from reading the SeeMeCnc instructions but it's vague.I'm thinking I should install the R...

Re: Artemis or Rostock MAX v4

So all of the printing specs seem the same on both except for the build height. How much print quality difference will there be? I'm leaning towards the Artemis because of the new rails but it seems like a steep price difference. I just had to jump in on this one. How much print quality difference ...

Re: Hot end goes to the bottom and stops.

Problem fixed. Turns out it's a Matter Control issue. I imported a gcode from a different slicer and it works perfect. It's been a while since I've used Matter Control and the RAMBO board so I probably just have a setting off.

Hot end goes to the bottom and stops.

I'm not sure if this is a HE280 issue or MC. Everything moves and calorbrates perfectly. I even used the calorbration wizard gcode. When I go to print the calorbration cube the HE goes to the bottom at the X tower, moves a bit and stops. After a while a red light starts flashing on the HE. I'm actua...

Re: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

Have you considered connecting the Teensy to the 4 pin Z probe connector instead of to the E0 endstop connector? You could use the Mod pin on the Z probe connector to do the reset. Selecting probe type 3 in the M558 command will drive that signal low, then select type 5 before you probe to drive it...

Re: EzStruder Over Heating With Duet

If the extruder motors are rated at 1.5A then I suggest you set the current to about 1.3A to that they run cooler. You can put a command to turn the unused extruder motor off in the tfree#.g tool change file, where # is the tool number. I don't recommend using I0 in the M906 command unless you real...

Re: EzStruder Over Heating With Duet

1. What is the rated current of the stepper motor? Is there a part number label on the motor that would help you to look it up? Try turning the current down to 80% of the rated current. 2. You can use M18 to turn motors off selectively, see http://reprap.org/wiki/Gcodes#M18:_Disable_all_stepper_mot...

Just want to follow up. Everyone was great at getting me a new board. Everything works perfect with the new one. Had it hooked up and running in 30 minutes. The IR probe also works great.

EzStruder Over Heating With Duet

I'm trying to figure out why my extruders are over heating with the Duet board. I've been following other's for the motor current of 1500. I'm not sure what the current should be for a stock EZstruder. If I lower the current will I need to adjust other setting to compensate? Also I've been trying to...

Thank you for all of your help on this. I'll send another message to Filistruder. I think he copied you on the last one. The Wfi board sounds pretty exciting.

Oh, the motor, I was testing the pins on the board. The motors have continuity on 1&2, 3&4, the pins on the Duet board does not.

Still nothing. I checked the pins and there's no continuity between the pairs. Please explain. Do you mean that you DO get continuity within each pair (between pins 1&2, and between pins 3&4)? Or no continuity anywhere? No continuity. I checked the other pairs as well and there is no contin...

What the G91 should do is avoid the "Attempt to move the motors of a delta printer to absolute positions" message when you send the G1 S2 X10 command. If you are not getting that message and the X motor still isn't moving and the currents are set nonzero, then it does sound like a motor w...

Have you unplugged a motor with the board powered up? I don't know if it's the same on the Duet, but it's my understanding (at least with the Rambo) that the driver chips don't survive that. g. No, I always unplug the PSU, and USB before doing anything on the board. I'm very careful in the way I ha...

Hi dmo. I actually had a similar issue when converting to the Duet. I had to completely rewire (or swap wires) the connection from each motor to the board. I don't remember what the exact combination or appropriate connections are right off the top of my head, but I can check for you when I get bac...
