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: Latest Firmware?

Looks like all the big boys have moved over to Duet. I'm still using the last version (circa 2016??) of 626pilot's. I may have to take that plunge too. :( I don't want to stop you buying a Duet, but FWIW there is now a port of RepRapFirmware for LPC1769 based controllers. See https://reprap.org/for...

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.

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

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.

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

If M552 tells you that networking is enabled by the actual IP address is 0.0.0.0 then your router hasn't assigned the Duet an IP address. Is the Duet connected to your router, or direct to your Mac? if it is connected direct to your mac then you will need to configure static IP addresses for both th...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

Problems connecting a Duet Ethernet to a network are typically caused by IP address conflicts. If you (or SeeMeCNC) haven't already done so, you probably need to change the IP address in the M552 command in config.g to either 0.0.0.0 to get an address from your DHCP server, or to a static IP address...

Re: mesh calibration issues

The X-direction ridges and valleys at each end suggest that you still have a small issue with backlash, probably caused by either a sticky joint or play in asjoint.

Re: mesh calibration issues

The ridges and valleys running along the X direction mean that the height of the effector depends on whether that XY point was approached from the +X or -X direction. This could be caused by loose or sticky joints. The big drop at the right hand side is odd. It could indicate that the FSRs don't tri...

Re: Motor Currents?

I can corroborate the need to play with especially extruder current limits; mine (totally stock) was skipping terribly when I first got it. I goosed it up in increments until it didn't skip any longer, then added 100mA to that value just for some insurance. I don't see any downside, and none of my ...

@Xenocrates, thanks for providing clarification. I haven't looked at SeeMeCNC's repo for a while.

The version number for RRF is in the Version.h file. When I commit new fimware I usually include the version number in the title of the commit.

Duet Web Control does include the file date in the GCode file listing, and the most recent few versions allow you to sort the file list by date. If you are viewing the list on a smartphone then you might need to scroll the display (horizontally?) to see the date.

The sound difference between the Duet 0.8.5 and the DuetWifi is astonishing. The 0.8.5 is insanely loud in comparison. g.

Re: Converting MAX v3 to ATX PSU

The disadvantages of ATX PSUs are that you generally need to put a dummy load on the 5V output, the output voltage is not adjustable, it is likely to be a little less than 12V, and unless you buy a good brand name PSU then it is likely to be not well regulated. All of which means that you may be sho...
