UNSOLVED Required config.g changes for panel due 5i?



  • I've read through the documentation regarding the wiring/connector changes to connect a panel due to the duet3, but was curious about configuration requirements. Now that the I/O has been generalized (I had been using the recommended io_0 as the x end stop, which I'll move), are there any commands required in config.g in order to enable the screen? I figured I would ask before blindly connecting it and booting it up as I didn't see anything specific in the documentation.

    No special firmware configuration is needed at present, because the current firmware assigns IO_0 to PanelDue. This will probably change in future, for example we may extend the M575 P1 command to specify which port to use.



  • Awesome, it worked as expected! I appreciate the confirmation, it's too close to ERRF to be plugging things in without asking.



  • I take it back, the screen turns on and appears to be displaying properly, but closer inspection shows that the 'tools' disappeared (no bed/heater present). Further, the 'homing' buttons on the panel due seemed to be ineffective (no reaction from the machine). I'll look into an HDMI touchscreen that fits the bill instead.

    What firmware version is your paneldue on? May need updating?

    PanelDue is very fussy about heater numbers. It expects the bed heater to be heater 0, tool 0 to use heater 1, and so on.



  • Those are the settings that I am using. If I leave the panel unplugged, everything works as expected in DWC. If I connect the screen, there are no longer any tools available in DWC.

    That sounds odd. Please ensure you are using the latest DSF and RRF, and if the problem still occurs, post your config.g file.
