Duet 0.6 and BLTouch
Gilly last edited by
I've been out of 3d printing for about 2/3 years (or when Piezo was starting out or new). I have recently bought a Ender 3 and I'm keen to put my Duet 0.6 i had for my old Delta in/on it once I have got the basics of marlin back in my head and set up so I know it's printing fine before changing boards.
I bought a BLTouch and have set that up with the current Ender 3 board, but I am unable to find if it is possible to connect it to the 0.6 board (Not the 4.7K version).
The 3 questions I have;
1, is it possible to connect the BLTocuh to a Duet 0.6 board?
2, If not which is the cheapest board I can get which will connect?
3. I still have my Piezo20 board from x amount of years ago, am I able to connect that to an Ender 3.
Thanks all, good to be back
Yes it should be possible. Connection would be as for the Duet WiFi except that the expansion connector pinout is different, and the Z probe input (output from BLTouch) is on the expansion connector too.
@Gilly First, update to the latest firmware 1.26.1 https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases/tag/2.05.1
To connect BLTouch to Duet 0.6, see table here: https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_a_Z_probe#Section_Z_Probe_Header_Expansion_header_pins to see pin mapping from Duet 2 WiFi to Duet 0.6.
Then https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_a_Z_probe#Section_Duet_2_WiFi_Ethernet_without_a_Duex_2_or_Duex_5_expansion_board for pin connections (on Duet 2 WiFi, so use table above to map pins to Duet 0.6)
Software configuration should then be the same as Duet 2 Wifi: https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_a_Z_probe#Section_Software_setup_Duet_2_WiFi_Ethernet_running_RepRapFirmware_Num_2
