Text or visual instructions (PanelDue or Webpage)



  • Hey,

    I was wondering if it's possible to have to have some kind of instruction process for the duet 2. Here's my goal. I want to guide a user through the process of changing the heater block + nozzle module.

    Here a rough example:
    1: User selects "Change Nozzle" on PanelDuer or webpage (interface)
    2.0: The interface responds with a text and an image guiding the user through unloading the filament.
    2.1: Interface asks for typ of loaded material >> What temp to heat to for unloading the filament
    2.2: Printer unload filament and after that turns off heater
    2.3: interface tells user to wait until hotend is cold enough
    2.4: Interface shows pictures (or just text) on how to remove the heater block + nozzle module and asks user to confirm if the step has been completed (next and back button)
    .....

    I hope I got my point across. I think this would be a wonderful functionality, especially for OEM customers, but currently I don't see any way of Implementing this.

    Greetings
    Daniel

    Interface shows pictures

    that pretty much rules out PanelDue, even if you strip the logo at loading you're not gonna fit any usable amount of pictures into the PanelDue code afaik, DuetWebControl is probably your best bet.

    @schpongo good idea for DWC (as @bearer says, not going to happen on PanelDue).

    This is a great use case for a DWC/DSF plugin as well.

    Excluding the pictures some of this logic can be implemented already using a combination of macros, conditional gcode and M291.

    Do you think it would be possible on the PanelDue without the pictures?

    The option with the M291 command seems like a quick fix, but there you would be limited to the 4 different types of preset for "Message boxes" Sn.
    The documentation also suggest one can use HTML code but gives no further information on how to do that.

    To me it seems like the most complete solution with pictures is currently only achievable with DWC. Where would I best start to read up on the topic?
