Thanks for stating your reason for doing this. The communication issue is that someone comes along and reads this without understanding the consequences. This happens all the time and I spend a lot of time helping people unlearn things they've read and they take for best practice. Using the slicer to compensate for calibration issues is not a best practice, That's all!
nevermind i mangaged to sort it out just incase newbies like me read this and have the same issue i had the G92 command set wrong for my printer set it correctly and it works as intended thank you very much for all your help and dealing with my troubles
Fan0 is the print cooling fan by default - it's the most important one to be able to control.
The default configuration of Fan1 is documented at https://duet3d.com/wiki/Connecting_and_configuring_fans.
I think you mean binary search. I remember using this technique when i was a student, to determine the appropriate amount of chilli to use when cooking chilli con carne. It only took me 3 meals to get it right.
That's it dc42! Many thanks for enlightening
Thank you Tony
You were right.
I was confused about the M665 "R" parameter "set delta radius".
The description "delta radius" led me to believe, that this should be the radius of the entire printer.
After reading closer in duetWifi setup by DC42, I realized it is the rod length, measured horisontal from mid link to mid link, with the carriage in center position.
I think the configurator help text is confusing you. When a fan is not configured to be thermostatic, the "Value" field will be the fan PWM at startup. So set that to zero for fan 0. Or just edit S0.3 to S0 in the M106 P0 command in config.g.
Yes, help text is confusing me, but problem is that fan started on at 100% as soon as I powered on after using the web configurator… which also baffled me.
I'm using this now, which works great:
M106 P0 S0 H-1 F100 ; Set fan 0 , PWM signal inversion and frequency. Thermostatic control is turned off - FAN
M106 P1 S1 H1 T50 ; Set fan 1 value, PWM signal inversion and frequency. Thermostatic control is turned on - HS
M106 P2 S1 H0 T60 ; Set fan 2 value, PWM signal inversion and frequency. Thermostatic control is turned on - Motor
