Config file for FT5 R2

  • Dose any one have a good config file for the FT5 R2 using the duet 3D?

  • Here's my FT5 R-2 config. I copied it below with the heading of my post asking for comments about it. Got a lot of good feedback. Look for the whole thread on June 4 to see more details.
    This config runs really well and is set up primarily for ABS temps. I make most process settings in Simplify 3D, and use S3D scripts to start and finish prints.
    Note too that I use an inductive height sensor, a filament runout sensor, have both Y steppers on separate drives, have changed pulley sizes so steps are non-FT, and have customized some of the files, so you may need more info than shown in the config.

    Review rookie config.g please

    The Duet WiFi has made my FolgerTech FT5-2 printer run amazingly well. My general config.g settings seem to work really well over a wide speed range, for large and small parts and for ABS and PLA. (I use S3D and its' start/stop scripts for individual run settings)

    But I have a few questions about the config.g structure (syntax? whatever it's called) and how some of the Gcode is used. Some specific Q's are embedded in config line comments below.

    Could I please ask for comments on what might need to change, be added or deleted?
    I print 3-5x per week, wide range of parts, as a hobbyist. No need for efficiency or fancy config...just want a proper, basic config.g.

    Thank you.
