Re: Duet WiFi with E3V6 dragging on plate

We recently found that the M109 command can cause unwanted position changes in some situations. If that's the cause of your issue, here are some workarounds: - Don't use M109, use M104 or G10 to set the temperature followed by M116 to wait for it to be reached - Deselect the tool before the M109 com...

Re: Duet WiFi with E3V6 dragging on plate

It sounds like you are doing something at the start of the print that is resetting the Z=0 position. What is the sequence you are using to calibrate and print, and what is your slicer start script?

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.

Re: ARTEMIS

The point about 24V vs. 12V is that at high speeds, higher drive voltages are needed to overcome the inductance and back emf due to rotation of the stepper motors, especially when using 0.9deg motors. The Duet wiki covers this at https://duet3d.com/wiki/Choosing_stepper_motors#How_to_work_out_the_po...

Have you measured the resistance of the heater cartridge? It should be 3 to 5 ohms if it is a 12V one.

Rotary encoder bounce doesn't matter if the driver software is correctly written and only one contact bounces at a time.

Re: Layer Fan Woes

You are right, it's the VIN side of the jumper block that should be connected to VIN. But if the always-on fans work with the jumper in the VIN position, it's OK anyway. Fan 1 defaults to thermostatic mode, so to control it normally you need to send M106 P1 H-1. Other than that, if you are only gett...

Re: Layer Fan Woes

If you shorted out an always-on fan connector, you may have fused the PCB trace that feeds power to the fans. Remove the fan voltage selection jumper and check continuity between the centre pin of that jumper block and the + pin of the VIN terminal block or the bed heater terminal block. If there is...

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: 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.

Re: FSR + DuetWifi

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.
