RRF config tool issues (RRF3/Duet3)



  • I'm playing with the RRF config web page for a Duet3 config (non-SBC mode) and am encountering a few issues while trying to configure a delta type printer.

    1. On the I/O Mapping page, I've selected io4.in, io5.in and io.6 in for my 3 endstops. (I can also select io0.in thru io8.in.) It probably shouldn't give the option for any io0 pin because it's reserved for the PanelDue (according to this page: https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Duet_3_Mainboard_6HC_Hardware_Overview#Section_IO)

    2. However, in the z-probe section on the same page, there's no option for selecting any of the pins on io0 thru io2. io8 pins are also missing from the droplist. (I don't mean that it won't allow me to select the pins - I mean that the items aren't even in the list to begin with.) Is there a reason for not allowing pins from io1, io2 or io8?

    3. My z-probe is a precision piezo orion sensor. It has 3 pins: +3.3v, trigger, and GND. In other words, there's no modulation pin/wire. However, if I don't select a modulation pin (leave as not assigned) on the I/O Mappings page, then on the 'Endstops' page, 'Probe Type' section, I'm unable to select "Smart Effector or Piezo." (This might be intentional because there's also an option for "unmodulated or smart IR probe", but I don't think any precision piezo z-probes offer modulation.)

    4. A personal annoyance of mine: On the "Compensation" page, if I select 12 peripheral points, I'm unable to select 6 half-way points. (It limits the selection to only 3 half-way points if 12 peripherals are selected.)

    Despite what that document says, io0 does work as an input for an endstop switch. I know because I missed the documentation, and used io0 for a long time, and had to re-sequence all my endstops when I went to plug in my PanelDue. I believe the documentation should be clarified.

    This type of sensor acts like a switch. I'd configure it as such (and physically hook up +3.3, which has nothing to do with config)

    (That's why I included the link to the page saying it was reserved...)

    I just deleted whatever the config tool created for the probe and instead copied from my duet2/RRF3 config (and changed "zprobe.in" to "io3.in")

    Of course, I don't have the duet3 yet, but I wanted to get the sd card ready and a basic config done (and everything commented out in the file.) It gives me a strong starting position once my board arrives and gets attached (tomorrow evening, I hope.)

    One thing I'm uncertain of.. in my duet2/RRF config, I have a line to monitor the MCU temp, but I'm unsure if it should be changed (or if its even supported) for the duet3:

    M308 S2 P"mcu-temp" Y"mcu-temp"

    Restriction #2 if because it's only letting you select pins that support analog input, which is needed for probe types 1 and 2.
