Adding wifi to a duet 3



  • Is there an adapter you can use or a screen with wifi like the TFT35 that would add wifi to the duet 3?
    Bought the duet 3 without realizing it was ethernet only
    Thanks



  • The simple option is to get a wifi bridge, or to add an Raspberry Pi (with or without an HDMI screen).

    If you have a PanelDue you could put some bluetooth or wifi modules between the IO_0 / PanelDue connector and the PanelDue to make it wireless. I used some DT-06 modules with esp-link firmware when i tested it for Duet 2 + PanelDue.



  • Anybody knows if there is a duet3 wifi in the pipeline?

    (I am debating between buying duet2 wifi now or waiting for a duet3 wifi)

    Given the first prototype had wifi and they moved to a raspberry pi instead i doubt it.

    If not in a rush I'd keep an eye for some TMC2209 development on the Duet 2 line.



  • well on the duet2 i swapped a wifi to ethernet and also the reserved (added wifi to Eth) and it worked just fine in both cases, you will just need to give up that SPI port I think , just use a decent wifi module like ESP12 with some external antenna and give it a shot, unless they went as far to the effort of removing wifi support native from RRF3

    both wifi and ethernet use the same spi port on the duet2 - but the wifi also needs an uart++. the support isn't removed from rrf3 as such, just not enabled when built for the duet3. its probably doable, but not as easy as with the duet2 as the ethernet is part of the pcb, not a module like the duet2 (and you need to change some of the sources for the duet3 part of rrf3 and build custom firmware)
