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 Rambo...

Re: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

I'm using the Duet 8.5 and the pins are different. I can't tell from your diagram if the green thermistor wire is going to the vin(+) or the E1r ( thats how my T0 is labeled. The HE280 wiring states all circuits share a common positive, does that include the thermistor? Thanks for all your incredib...

Re: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

I am looking at changing the way the control pin works when probe type 5 is used. The plan would be: - When type 5 is selected in M558, the control output is set low. - When the probing move starts, the control output is set high. - When the probing move stops, the control output is set low again. ...

Re: Buckethead - Rostock Max V2 to V3

Ive been doing all of my testing and experiments with the Teensy 3.2. Once I have things worked out (very close now) I will implement the same configuration on the Trinket and do a head to head comparison. In theory they should be identical but we will see. Awesome. We should try to merge both code...

Re: Buckethead - Rostock Max V2 to V3

If you already have a Teensy 3.1/3.2 and you are not planning on using it for anything else, I would use that.
The Trinket is great for a minimal and cheaper solution, but the Teensy is far more powerful which will allow extra tweaking and testing if you ever end up down that road.

Re: RostockMAX V3 to Duet WiFi conversion instructions

YET! the nightmare isn't over. Calibrates beautifully doing a g29 the height map is all green with a mean error of .031mm, 1/3 the thickness of a sheet of paper. so why does the printhead print almost a 1mm low? Nothing is being extruded since the print head is so low. I simply dont understand how ...

Re: RostockMAX V3 to Duet WiFi conversion instructions

Beyond frustrated at this point. Go to do an Autocal and then all hell breaks loose. the Print head is crashing into the bed. Try a few things and now it's probing in mid air. Maybe a loose connection? (Edit: Or typo in your config) If you cannot figure it out I am in the LA area, North Hollywood t...

Nice. Thank you for all of your work, it's much appreciated! :)

Re: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

My posts above have been modified, code on github changed, and the simple wire diagram has been redone to reflect moving the wires to the z probe connector as suggested by dc42. :)

Re: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

@trash80 (great name by the way, I wonder how many people get it!) - in your photo it looks like you have 3 wires going to the 4 pin I2C male connector. Is that just as shadow? There are only 2 wires on the connector from the whip. Thanks. I own the .com and such. :) It's just a shadow, I made the ...

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: Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

Is this similar to what MHackney has done? Also for the Duet, interestingly. Yup! I figured I can keep things very similar to the rambo setup with i2c, at least for a testing/temporary/quick solution. I am sharing it because it seems to work pretty well for me, next time I am at my shop I'll try sc...

Duet HE280 Probe i2c interface

I wrote a simple program that converts the HE280 Probe i2c accelerometer for use with the Duet Wifi using a Teensy 3. The Pro Mini 3v version would also work as well. The key is it has to be 5v tolerant because of the level shifting on the HE280 PCB to 5v and it has to output 3v for the Duet, So eit...
