Re: PCB smart effector and carriage adapters for Haydn Huntley's rods

Yes the Diamond would need to be above the effector with the nozzle poking through a hole in the centre.

Re: PCB smart effector and carriage adapters for Haydn Huntley's rods

I'm already looking at designing a version for a Diamond, because I would like to use one too. What do you think would be an appropriate rod spacing?

A version for the Cyclops has been requested too.

These are not limitations unless you have limited imagination - see my response to your post in the other thread.

What other widely-used hot end do you think we should have designed it to fit instead?

Re: Z-Probe for Max V2? BLTouch or another option?

so sad it looks like it's for magballs and e3d hotend only The Duet3D effector was designed for magballs and an E3D hot end with a modified heatsink (made by E3D), but that doesn't mean it can't be adapted for other hardware. I expect it would be easy to print an adaptor plate that you attach betwe...

Re: Filament sensor

You may be interested in the Duet3D filament monitor that is currently in beta. It measures movement of the filament - both forwards and reverse - and transmits that to the controller electronics. Then the main firmware compares the measured filament movement with the amount commanded, and triggers ...

Re: Duet SD card files

Check that you have parameter X0 in your M558 command, and X1 or X2 (depending on where your X endstop is) in your M574 command. The firmware for the older Duets defaults to using the Z probe for X homing, for backwards compatibility.

Yes, which is why we supply some with every Duet WiFi and Duet Ethernet.

We're looking at alternatives to screw terminals for the next generation, but it's hard to find any other type of high-current connector that is within budget.

Yes, that's normally caused by slicing with absolute extruder coordinates but not having M82 in the start gcode. Preferably, slice using relative extruder coordinates instead and use M83 in your start gcode. Cura doesn't yet support relative extruder coordinates, so if you are using Cura you need to...

I suspect you have a bad crimp connection in the output wire from the JohnSL board to the Duet, or you have connected the output wire to the wrong pin on the Duet Z probe connector.

Check the connections between the JohnSL board and the E0 endstop input on the Duet. If you have connected it to the ZProbe connector instead, use P5 instead of P4 in your M558 command.

Does the JohnSL board have an led to indicate when it triggers?

Does the JohnSL board produce an active low output (I1 in your M558 command)? I thought it was active high. Here's how to test the Z probe. Set the nozzle well above the bed and send G30. It should start a probing move towards the bed. Tap the bed sharply to trigger the FSRs and the head should stop...

Re: MAX V3 stock power supply volatage increase

For anyone else doing a similar modification, instead of a resistor I suggest you put two 1N4001 or similar silicon rectifier diodes in series with the fan. They will drop almost 1V each, bringing 13.5V-14V from the PSU back down to 12V for the fan.

If you are using a Duet WiFi or Duet Ethernet, then you shouldn't need to do any tuning other than the usual heater model tuning (equivalent to PID tuning in other firmwares). With the earlier Duets, it was sometimes helpful to tune the ADC offset and gain to get more accurate readings, especially a...

Re: how to gcode?: continuous, uninterrupted extrusion

It's easiest if you generate relative extruder coordinates, then you just need to make the E coordinate of each gcode command proportional to its XY length to get a constant extrusion rate.

The self resetting fuse doesn't protect the fan circuits.

You can test the Duet's input by disconnecting the FSR board and shorting the two outer pins of that endstop connector together. The LED should come on and the firmware should indicate that the Z probe ...
