Problems with Configuration Tool



  • I had a defective SD card and unfortunately due to a PC change no backup. So I had to reset my Delta Printer and changed to the new firmware. I used the Config Tool. DuetWifi and SW 3.0. The two PT1000 sensors show wrong ( what worked fine under the 2.x. Homing does not work anymore ( goes to the endstops and instead of shutting down, it stops at the switched endstops. It is not possible to create a reasonable config.g with this tool. Z-Endstop is grayed out and cannot be selected. The parameters for the sizes don't fit either ( e.g. printable area maximum 105mm and that where I have a 300mm print bed). The config is hardly suitable as a first clue.

    Then i wanted to switch back to a 2.x version..but that dont work..updated it and its still the 3.0 version..

    any hints for me?

    just tried again..downloaded the latest version..uploaded it to the printer...started the update and got this
    M997 S0
    Error: In-application programming binary "Duet2CombinedIAP.bin" not found



  • that really drives me crazy..used the config tool over and over again...finally i got the 2 PT1000 back to work...even had one Calibration via G32..put the new numbers into my M665 and M666 but now my Homing dont work...he runs into endstops...lower 10mm and makes a 2nd run..goes up into endstops and stops there..the dont lower again...

    with that homedelta it worked before but not anymore...and because homing dont work i get this error message
    G28
    Error: G0/G1: target position not reachable from current position

    same with g32
    G32
    Error: G0/G1: target position not reachable from current position

    Can you check that version 3 firmware was actually applied? Send M115 to check version.

    Duet2CombinedIAP.bin is in the same release as the 3.0 firmware. You need that file present on the SD card to be able to roll back to the previous 2.x firmware.

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure about your delta homing problem.



  • FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet FIRMWARE_VERSION: 3.0 ELECTRONICS: Duet WiFi 1.02 or later FIRMWARE_DATE: 2020-01-03b3

    strange..schouldnt it be something with RC3? it was the last version..anyway...the homing prob is very odd...because if it occours i have to turn off the printer and sometimes it works after that cold reset



  • ok..solved the Homing Problem...checked it several times that i choosed the active high endstops but in config.g they were active low...
    Holy sh?* my first config after i bought the duet wifi was so easy compared to bring my Delta back to live now
