Tool board configuration



  • Evening all. I hooked up my tool board this evening to update the firmware. After some fiddling with the can bus wiring, I got it to update. Then I started working on my config.g to read the sensors from the tool board. This is where I am having some troubles.

    I was using examples from https://miscsolutions.wordpress.com/2020/03/04/converting-the-e3d-tool-changer-to-duet-3-with-hemera-tools-part-2/

    This is my config.g file currently. I have left the default can bus address of 121 set.

    As you can see, my extruder temp is still showing nothing. Any ideas to remedy this?

  • This works for me, my tool board is CAN 22. I also have tools on a 3HC at CAN 1.

    Please try the following:

    1. Check whether the config settings have been applied, by sending M308 S1 and M950 H1 and checking the response.
    2. Run M98 P"config.g" and see if any errors are reported.

    Please specify the firmware versions. Your idea of up to fate might not be the same as ours!



  • @dc42 I am using the firmware you posted the other day. https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases/tag/3.01-RC12

    My problem ended up being the wrong temp sensor connector.

    alt text

    I was also wondering if everything is in place to have a bl-touch running off of the IO_0 port on the tool board.

    I'm glad you solved it.

    Yes.



  • @dc42 Cheers



  • @Danal You wouldnt happen to have a bl-touch on your toolboard would you?



  • @madmattco said in Tool board configuration:

    Not on the toolboard. I do have a BLt, it is on io4 on the mainboard.

    Here is the setup. Unless the firmware does/doesn't support something, I don't see why this couldn't be xx.io0.in (and out) on a toolboard.

    				                            ;   A bigger dive height prevents a situation where the bed is out of alignment by more than the dive height
                                                ;   on any corner, which can crash the hot-end into the bed while moving the head in XY.
                                                ;   Probing speed and travel speed are similarly reduced in case the Z probe isn't connected properly (or
                                                ;   disconnects later after moving to a point) giving the user more time to stop.

                                                ; Snnn = Tolerance when probing multiple times. Two readings inside this window and we move on.

  • @Danal That worked for me sir. Cheers



  • I have a BLTouch on my toolboard, if you need some help.
