I assume that after it dries you can apply the normal adhesive.


Yes, I used 8153LE adhesive sheet, but 468MP should be equally suitable.

Re: Upgrading to Duet/Diamond

It's usually best to use 6-factor auto calibration instead of 7-factor and set the diagonal rod length in the M665 command to the value you measured. Scaling inaccuracies are often caused by the bearing spacings being slightly different at the top and bottom ends of a pair of diagonal rods. You can ...

Re: Next generation Duet

Is there anyway to add video monitoring? Or to run Rasberry Pie. Can that be done through the micro usb? Yes, you can do either. A RPi running Octoprint can be connected via the micro USB connector. You can also integrate an IP camera into DuetWebControl. Currently, this requires a camera that is c...

Re: Duet WiFi details published and pre-order window open

Two small corrections: 1. I am the designer and manufacturer of the PanelDue control board. 2. The unpopulated header for the SD card in the PanelDue display is on the PanelDue controller board, not the display board. It's the 5 pads labelled X5 next to the display connector.

Re: Duet WiFi details published and pre-order window open

You just made my point. If most computers have full sized SD readers, why would someone make a product that doesn't accept a full size card? Same as the reason why smartphones use micro SDHC cards: lack of space. Lack of board space is not an excuse when you're using a microcontroller that has an E...

If you have plans to use it in a location without wifi being allowed, you could easily get the LCD display, and from what I see it has an SD card reader on it (eliminating the need for access to the board directly). No need to access the USB port or "poor choice for portable storage" slot...

Re: Anyone using FSR's with their duet? Can you share your bed.g file?

I'm having good success with this on a Rostock Max V2 with a Duet and FSRs. It was generated using the tool dc42 links to. You can go to a larger diameter but I found that the bed wasn't flat enough for consistent results too near the edges. Note I have one H value. You likely want to get rid of th...

Re: Anyone using FSR's with their duet? Can you share your bed.g file?

I think mhackney uses FSRs, so with any luck he will reply. However, it shouldn't matter what sort of probe you use when deciding on the probe points, so I suggest you decide how many you want and use my bed.g generator at m. If you find that the trigger height varies with probing position (for exam...

Re: Duet WiFi details published and pre-order window open

Could you make the paneldue handle the webserver and ethernet functions? No, because the communication between PanelDue and Duet is async serial, which would be too slow to upload files with a good speed. For the communication between the ESP8266 and the ARM processor on the Duet, we use SPI at up ...

Not easily, because a driver would have to be written for it. But of course you could connect a RPI running Octoprint.

If you use WPA2 encryption on your wireless network and you keep your password secure, then your wireless network is no more open to hackers than your wired network. In either case, security holes in the router firewall or UPNP configuration are probably the main weakness. We are adding additional s...

1. Ensure there is a T0 command in the slicer start gcode, before the command to set temperatures. This is the recommended approach.

Re: Odd behavior on "reprints"

The usual reason for this is that no tool is selected. Look in the Gcode Console tab of the web interface for error messages to confirm this. You may have a T0 command at the end of config.g, which is OK for the first attempt, however the default action when cancelling a print is to deselect the cur...
