RepRapFirmware 3.0beta 11 released


  • administrators

    I've just released this at https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases/tag/3.0beta11. The main reason for this release is to improve support for Duet 3. Users of Duet 2 are recommended to use release 2.04RC4 instead, unless you need features not available in RRF2 and you are happy to be on the bleeding edge.



  • thanks 😄
    how about duet2 users that are on beta10? should we upgrade ?

    Yes - but as always with beta firmware, exercise caution.



  • small mistake in the changelog
    DHT sensors are not yet supported (but coming in beta 11)

    this is beta 11



  • @dc42 Is there a release notes document, what is new or changed?

    😄 I'm safe, not nearly ready to start printing 😄

    Was I dreaming or there was a way to upload web files to the sd cards too? Weird, had to remove the SD cards to put new DWC there



  • Now running on the Jubilee being built with Duet 3.

    More test reports to come.



  • @dc42 you changed anything wrt G30 ? my ZHOME stopped working ?!

    G91               ; relative positioning
    G0 Z5   F3000 H2  ; drop bed for 5mm
    G90               ; absolute positioning
    G0 X0Y0 F3000     ; go to center of the bed
    M401              ; deploy probe
    G30               ; Probe the bed at the current XY position.
    M402              ; retract probe
    G90               ; absolute positioning
    

    G30 does not stop moving when BLtouch is triggered



  • Just for a data point: A conventional microswitch as Z-Probe works fine.

    Board: Duet 3 version v0.6 (MB6HC)
    Firmware: RepRapFirmware for Duet 3 v0.6 3.0beta11 (2019-10-22b1)

    G0 X152.5 Y42 H1 F10000

    G30 P2 X5 Y300 Z-99999 S3   ; probe near front right leadscrew and calibrate 3 motors

    Probe config:

    M558 P5 C"io3.in" H5 A5 T6000  S0.02               
    
                ; Z probe - Set the height of the bed.  Combined with content of bed.g, levels bed. 
                ; P5 = Switch, NC
                ; C = Input Connector
                ; H10 - dive height
                ; A1 = Number of times to probe each point. 
                ; T5000 Travel speed between probe points. 
                ; S0.02 Tolerance when probing multiple times. Two readings inside this window and we move on. 
    


  • config

    M558 P9 C"zprobe.in" H5 F120 T3000 A2 ; FW v3 BLTouch connected to Z probe IN pin
    M950 S0 C"exp.heater3"                ; FW v3 create servo/gpio 
    G31 P500 X35 Y0 Z2.2                  ; set Z probe trigger value, offset and trigger height
    

    I removed the probe and tried to short gnd and zprobe.in (duet2eth board) and that did not detect it neither 😞

    maybe "zprobe.in" was renamed?

    G31 ; nothing connected to zprobe.in
    Current reading 250, threshold 500, trigger height 2.20, offsets X35.0 Y0.0
    
    G31 ; me holding a screwdriver shorting zprobe.in to gnd
    Current reading 0, threshold 500, trigger height 2.20, offsets X35.0 Y0.0
    
    

    this does not look ok, should I invert something or .. afaik BLtouch is open drain pulling output to gnd on trigger so my screwdriver should of triggered it ?!

    No, because this is a beta and so much has been changed. You can look through the github commit logs in branch v3-dev if you want all the details. But the main improvements are:

    • Reduced RAM usage on Duet WiFi and Duet Maestro
    • Ported the fixes that are in 2.04RC4 (which are documented in the usual whatsnew file)
    • Endstop switches attached to expansion boards are working in some configurations
    • RPM readings from 4-pin fans connected to expansion boards are now available
    • Added support for G38 (thanks Manuel)
    • Extended M122 report from expansion boards
    • Added DotStar LED support on Duet 3 main board
    • Include spindle speeds in restore points
    • Expansion board firmware can be update from an attached SBC
    • Include laser power in the status information returned to DWC
    • Added mDNS support to the Duet Ethernet and Duet Maestro (thanks chrishamm)
    • Added self-check of firmware CRC at startup

    You were not dreaming, you just upload the Duet Web Control .zip file through the Upload System Files button.

    Thanks, I think you've found a bug. Setting the G31 P parameter to less than 250 (e.g. 100) may be a workaround.



  • @dc42 so I just rename DuetWebControl-SD-2.04.zip to DuetWebControl.zip and upload to same place where I upload config.g and Duet2CombinedFirmware.bin and it will automagically fix everything, thanks 😄 will try

    You don't even need to rename it, just uploading it as-is should work.



  • G31 ; bltouch attached
    Current reading 0, threshold 10, trigger height 3.50, offsets X-35.0 Y0.0
    

    I doubt I can get readout on trigger as it lasts too short, could hookup scope if it would help but I unplugged the zprobe.in cable (so that would be the 250 we seen earlier) during G30 move and it did not trigger 😞

    if there's anything else I can do to debug lemme know 🙂


  • administrators

    Send G31 P100. Position the BLTouch well able the bed and send G30. Push the pin up before it reaches the bed and the downward motion should stop. If it doesn't, you can cut the power before it reaches the bed.

    If the reading is 250 with nothing connected, I expect the BLTouch to give that reading when triggered too.



  • tried that, didn't help, if you look at the last copy/paste from console threshold is 10, I tried 200, 100, 50 and 10 😄 same issue, never triggers, I even disconnected the cable during G30 move (assuming long 250 read will happen) but nothing bed just keep raising 😞


  • administrators

    Thanks for trying. I'll bench test a BLTouch with this firmware tomorrow.
