Attempting to extrude with no tool selected - During Print

  • This is my first Duet Wifi-based deltabot printer build, however I've built many 3D printers over the years using Marlin, Repetier and Smoothieware firmware.

    I'm really loving the new hardware and the DWC, but recently had a print fail near the end point with an "Error: Attempting to extrude with no tool selected." error message.

    Hardware is new, control board and firmware is the latest version, and I'm also running a 7i panel with most recent firmware updates. 400mm round bed, Fresh E3D V6 hotend with a .5 nozzle and a Zesty Nimble extruder.

    I'm wondering if this is a temperature issue or what else might be the problem? I've printed 10 other projects so far on this printer with the Duet Wifi and this is the first time for this error message.

    Thanks, Steve Graber

    Here is the DWC with the errors showing from last night:

    Here is the print that it failed on:

    I assume that the printer continued to print with no extrusion during the night because it was homed and waiting idle in the morning.

    Here is the relevant S3D initial gcode for this file: Note - There is NO Tool Select gcode anywhere else in this file except T0 at the very beginning.

  • Can you post the full gcode file?

  • It is almost 30Mb in size.

    Here is a Google-Drive link

  • Is it possible that someone accidentally clicked on something in a web interface or pressed a button on the PanelDue or accidentally bumped into the LCD panel, causing the tool to deselect?

    Your link is set to private, so I can't get it. Request sent though.

  • @bot It is not. The panel and all electronics are located at the top of the machine.

  • What firmware versions are you running?

    I can't see anything obvious in the gcode file, and can't think of a reason why it would deselect a tool.

    Were there any other error messages in the gcode console? Perhaps a heater fault?

  • @phaedrux I didn't see anything in the code either.

    Firmware is all updated fresh last week. I'm away from the machine and can give you the M115 response later today.

    The printer has been restarted since the issue and I didn't see anything temp related but I may have missed it.

  • @phaedrux said in Attempting to extrude with no tool selected - During Print:

    What firmware versions are you running?

    M115 returns : Version 2.02(rtos) electronics duet wifi 1.02 or later. Date 2018-12-24b1

  • If it happens again, try to scan through the console page to see any other error messages, and send a M122 to get a diagnostic report.

    Also you might want to turn logging on.
