Problems with micro SD card on a ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2



  • hey everyone,
    My School recently purchased a DIY kit for the ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2 from seemecnc. This printer uses a duet wifi board, so i was wondering if i could get support here. I cannot use WIFI to connect to the printer, because school wifi policies don't allow it. My issue is that none of the files in the micro SD card inserted into the DUET can be read or show up on the LCD touchscreen we purchased from seemecnc. When i try to open macros, for example the macro NETWORK, i recieve the response: macro file "0:/macros/NETWORK" not found. i loaded these macros from the seemecnc github as instructed by the configuration guide. I tried different micro SD cards and formatting, but they just won't show up. However, when i connected the printer to MatterControl and ran my macros through MatterControl, they seemed to be working just fine. I have tried seemecnc support as well as MatterHackers, but nobody can help with my issue. The gcode that i load on the SD card that is inserted in the LCD touchscreen also seems to have a problem: When i click on the gcode file on the Touchscreen and file information pops up, all stats are set to 0 (print time, material etc.). I don't know whether this is an issue with my duet board or printer itself. By the way, This is the first #D printer i have ever built, i am very much new to this, and barely know what gcode is. Thank you so much.

    1. If your school won't allow you to connect the Duet to the school WiFi network, perhaps you can run it in access point mode instead? Caution, if you do that then anyone with the password will be able to connect to it from their smartphone.

    2. On PanelDue, as long as you are using compatible versions of PanelDueFirmware and RepRapFirmware, you can switch between listing the GCode files on the SD card in the Duet (Card 0) or the one inserted into PanelDue (Card 1) by pressing the SD card icon at the top of the file list. Is that working? The macro list is always fetched from card 0.

    3. If you move the SD card to a SD card adapter in a PC or laptop, is the file /macros/NETWORK visible in the PC?

    4. What firmware versions are you using? To find the Duet firmware version, send command M115 from the PanelDue Console or from MatterControl. To find the PanelDue firmware version, go to the Setup page.



  • on pc, the micro sd card and the sd cards have all the files loaded. They are visible and i can open/ edit them with notepad ++. How would i set up access point mode? I have looked at both sd cards through the lcd, that sadly is not working. I will send M115 right now and let you know what happened. Thanks!



  • M 115 returns FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet Wifi.
    Also, what is panelDue?



  • PanelDue is the touchscreen.



  • That's all? Should show quite a bit more.

    Where/how was this? USB? or Touchscreen 'console' tab? or ?



  • @Danal thanks, i didn't even know that. When i put M 115 in the MatterControl terminal, that's all taht showed up. I am connected via usb to the printer.



  • After putting M 115 into the console, i get
    FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for duet WiFi FIRMWARE_VERSION: 1.19.2 ELECTRONICS: Duet Wifi 1.0 FIRMWARE_DATE: 2017-09-01



  • The panelDue firmware i am using is firmware version 1.22.1(28b1)



  • @insertcoin said in Problems with micro SD card on a ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2:

    How would i set up access point mode?

    From your USB terminal
    M552 S0
    This should put the WiFi module in "reset" or "idle" mode.

    M589 S"ssid" P"password" I"10.10.10.1"
    This sets the WiFi module to AP mode. Use an SSID and Password that you like. (Do Not put this in config.g, it saves itself in the WiFi module)

    M552 S2
    This actually starts the WiFi module. It is OK to put this in config.g

    A minute or so later, you can look for the SSID on your phone or tablet or whatever, and then connect to that network. Then connect to that IP address in a browser.

    Fantastic that we got the full story!!

    And... drum roll... that release is REALLY old.

    Given your school environment, what permission is needed to upgrade? We can discuss exactly how after we determine what is OK and what is not OK.



  • @insertcoin said in Problems with micro SD card on a ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2:

    The panelDue firmware i am using is firmware version 1.22.1(28b1)

    That is also fairly old. And a slightly different upgrade procedure. Again, after you decide how you wish to proceed, we can discuss the details.



  • @Danal said in Problems with micro SD card on a ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2:

    M589 S"ssid" P"password" I"10.10.10.1"

    this returns "bad or missing parameter in M 589 command" . I do not have the school wifi password, and wouldn't be able to use it anyways, are you saying i should choose whatever i want for ssid and password? I can download any software on my computer, the only problem is that my school doesn't allow wifi access. I have no other restrictions. Thanks so much by the way!



  • How would i change the firmware updates?

    By going AP, you are setting up a new network totally separate from the School's network. The ssid and password on this new network should NOT match the school, they should be your independent choice.

    How about:

    M589 S"rostocknet" P"pepperwool" I10.10.10.1

    The bad parm error was from quotes around the IP address.



  • @insertcoin said in Problems with micro SD card on a ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2:

    Step 1 is to get connected. 🙂



  • @Danal said in Problems with micro SD card on a ROSTOCK MAX V 3.2:

    M589 S"rostocknet" P"pepperwool" I10.10.10.1

    Okay, i feel like we're getting closer. After sending though, M552 S2, i get a Wifi reported error: failed to start access point.

    Hmmm... try M552 S0 wait a min, M552 S2, wait, try that a couple of times.



  • I tried that just now for a few times. I forgot to mention that "Wifi module is idle" shows up every time i get the wifi reported error, is that important?

    That's because firmware 1.19.x didn't support access point mode. This is what I suggest:

    • Download iap4e.bin and DuetWiFiServer.bin from https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases/tag/2.03 and put them in /sys on the Duet SD card
    • Download Duet2CombinedFirmware.bin from https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases/tag/2.05.1 and put it in /sys on the Duet SD card
    • Also put a copy of Duet2CombinedFirmware.bin on the SD card renamed to DuetWiFiFirmware.bin, replacing any existing file of the same name
    • Put the SD card back in the Duet and start the Duet
    • From Matter Control, send M997 S1
    • When that finishes updating the WiFi module firmware, send M997 (without the S1). It will disconnect.
    • After 30 seconds, try to connect again. Send M115 and check the firmware version. It should be 2.05.1.

    That will get the Duet firmware up to date. After that you can update the touch screen firmware.



  • Ok, great. I got the M997 step, but after disconnecting, i got
    Warning: Macro file config-override.g not found.
    Error: M375: Height map file heightmap.csv not found WiFi module started
    And for some reason, after putting in M 115 into the terminal, the console doesn't respond with a statement. Should i try Access point mode anyways?



  • Amazing, thank you guys. i got the Access point mode running. The only thing i am wondering about now are the constant errors i get when trying to do the first probe and the bed mapping. I keep getting
    Error: Z probe already triggered at start of probing move
    and also recieved a M 375 again. BUT i am so happy this thing finally works(almost)! thanks so much.


  • administrators

    Please post your config.g, bed.g and homedelta.g files.



  • As Dave said, please post those files.

    • M375 no height map: We'll fix this MUCH later. Ignore it for now

    • Config-override.g: Same thing. We will fix it later, ignore for now.

    There may need to be some slight changes in the config, that's why we need to see the files. Don't try to operate the machine too much until we take a look... and/or be ready to power off if it jams or tries to cram the nozzle into the bed or...
