Re: V3 to 3.2 : DUET v. SMCNC connectors?

SMCNC sold out on DUETs so I shopped elsewhere. DUET connectors are warned against in V3.2 assembly walkthrough: When inserting the wires in the white Molex KK connectors, make sure you're using the connectors we sent you in the kit, NOT the ones included in the Duet box! I'm guessing this is becau...

Re: V3 conversion to WASP LDM Clay extruder process

DUET WiFi option: I use my cell phone to hotspot for WiFi; that's how I'm typing now, and I'll be on our closed WiFi-LAN in our shop where I get full (cell)bars through concrete. Somewhere in the gazillion forum posts on the DUET WiFi board I recall reading that the WiFi was unstable? Is this true,...

Re: V3 conversion to WASP LDM Clay extruder process

If you go with the Duet, you'll end up with a much better printer. That being said, I have no idea how you'd integrate a BL Touch with a Duet controller. Using BLTouch with Duet is covered in the wiki at https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_a_Z_probe#Section_BLTouch. However, on a delta I advi...

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

Duet Web Control displays the version numbers on the Settings page. You can also get the main firmware version using M115 and the WiFi firmware version from the M122 diagnostic report.

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

Which main and WiFi firmwares are you running? 2.02 main and 1.23 WiFi are recommended. Main firmware 2.02 retries automatically if the WiFi connection is lost.

Re: Quickie: V4 how to keep the live Z adjustment all the time?

The other way to change the Z=0 height is to alter the Z parameter (trigger height) in the G31 command in config.g The advantage of doing it this way is that it will be unaffected by running auto calibration. Increasing the Z parameter (or if it is negative - as with nozzle-contact probes - making i...

Re: V4 touchscreen not doing anything

I am assuming that the touch screen on the V4 is a standard PanelDue. Is the status at the top right of the screen "Connecting"? If so then its failing to establish a connection to the Duet. Common causes are: - Mismatched band rates. Both should be set to 57600. On the touch screen it is selected o...

A long shot, but are you using steel cored belts? The steel cores fracture, which causes this type of problem.

Re: Sampling Filament Compression Force

I don't think any work would need to be done in Cura. If you can come up with a suitable sensor, I'm sure we can support it in Duet 3, and maybe in Duet 2 also. Btw we already have a design for a load cell amplifier interface to the Duet.

Re: Sampling Filament Compression Force

What you need is a load cell or similar sensor that measures the force that is stopping the Bowden tube popping out of the collets at each end. The strain gauge built into the HE300 isn't suitable because, like the the Duet3D Smart Effector is is based on, it is designed to detect changes in force r...

Re: Max v.3.2 dimensions off in one direction

If the scaling error is linear then you can use the M579 command in config.g to correct it, see https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/GCode#Se ... esian_axes. However, scaling errors are often caused by factors that don't cause uniform scaling; so I suggest you try larger test cubes too.

Re: RESOLVED: Z probe issues after recalibration

I am having the same issue. Had to replace duet board when it failed. Afterwards, the printer prints large and then trying to calibrate it has made it do all sorts of goofy things, including ramming against the Y and X pillars. Also the center seems offset. That's almost certainly due to incorrect ...

Re: V3.2 Carbon Fiber Rod upgrade

As well as deleting config-override.g, increase the dive height (H parameter in the M558 command) to e.g. 30 until you have it calibrated. That allows more tolerance for the homed height and delta radius not being set accurately. Changing the rod length will have changed the homed height.

Does Cura support Telnet connection to the printer? If so then you just need to configure it to use Telnet instead of serial, and enable Telnet on the Duet using the M586 command. However, if you want to monitor the printer, then running Duet Web Control on the PC next to Cura will give you more inf...

Re: Printing in mirror image

Swap the X and Y motor connections, also swap the X and Y endstop switch connections assuming the printer homes correctly at present. If you are using software endstop position corrections then you will need to swap those X and Y values too.

You /cannot/ run the calibration while the heated bed is turned on due to the field the heated bed creates.

Re: New printer owner here. Ask me questions!

Multiple extrusion has been working robustly on Duets since 2014. What I think is going wrong is that you are not setting the tool standby temperatures (so the standby temperature is 0C), and perhaps you have not set up the tool change macros. Tool standby temperatures are set using the G10 R parame...

Re: Duet WiFi - Rostock V2

Be careful if you are driving the BerdAir pump directly from a Duet fan output. The high starting current of brushed DC motors can be too much for the fan mosfet. So you should use either a surge-limiting thermistor in series with the motor, or an external mosfet switch.

I'm glad you solved it! It's actually HTML5 local storage that DWC uses, not cookies, but the two are usually enabled/disabled together in the browser.

I'll see if we can have DWC produce a warning when HTML5 local storage is not available.
