Stupid question.



  • Is it possible to hook up to the duet2 via wifi using simplify 3d software so I can use the live preview tracking feature of the software?

    I've only been able to get it to work via USB.

    Thanks for the reply I had to ask more out of curiosity



  • not familiar with how s3d works, but enabling telnet on the duet and installing a virutal com port that is linked to the duet on the telnet port might work similarly as if it was connected via usb



  • @bearer S3D is very picky about its ports. On Linux, it won't accept a "virtual" serial device like you'd create with socat. I can't try Windows but it might be worth a shot.

    just occured to me using any esp8266-ish (board be it nodemcu/wemos d1 mini etc) you could probably combine Duet telnet with esplink firmware on the esp8266 to get you a hardware serial port that is networked to the Duet.

    (but printing from the duets SD card is one of the bigger features)

    ((and with RC11 you could also get raw g-code from the PanelDue port to put into another esplink to avoid telnet))
