Software bundle 3.1.1 now available


  • administrators

    On behalf of the entire Duet3D team I am pleased to announce the releases of

    Starting from this release, we will maintain uniform version numbers for our software products in hope to simplify the upgrade process and compatibility overview. Before you go ahead and install the new versions, please read the upgrade notes for RepRapFirmware. Additional notes for DuetWebControl and DuetSoftwareFramework are available, too, but they are not as important as for RepRapFirmware. If you are upgrading from older firmware versions and ignore this, some things will NOT work! Besides, all our software and hardware files are now available on the same GitHub account.

    Users of Duet 3 + Raspberry Pi may upgrade from the stable or unstable package feeds using sudo apt-get update and sudo apt get upgrade from a command-line terminal (via SSH or on the Pi itself). All other Duet users can get the required components from the links at the top (see also here). Apart from that, new DuetPi versions with v3.1.0 are now available (see here).

    The new versions provide many bug fixes, various improvements, and conditional G-code. Now that the new object model has been declared stable, we will start documenting it as well. Until then, a preliminary auto-generated documentation can be found here.

    If you have any questions or encounter problems, please look for a post in the forum categories for

    and if you could not find one, please create it there and not here.



  • @dc42 @chrishamm It was a lot of work and a long haul I know. Congratulations!



  • Upgraded. Pi+6HC+2x3HC+1HC. No issues.

    Fantastic to have everything match. Conditional, etc.

    Thank You.



  • Sorry if I'm being thick but I'm still on a very early beta (pre - RC) firmware and it has been many months since I last installed an update. I'm not sure what the RepRap firmware zip file contains - maybe I missed something somewhere.

    I've made the following assumptions which I'd like to be confirmed please. Note, I'm still running stand alone - non RPi

    1. The "Duet2and3Firmware-3.1.0.zip is just the firmware. I still need to separately download and instal "DuetwebControl 3.1.0." Yes or no?

    2. The "Duet2and3Firmware-3.1.0.zip" is just for the main board. I still need to separately download and instal "Duet3Firmware_EXP3HC.bin" for the expansion boards. Yes or no?

    Also, what is the procedure for updating expansion board firmware these days? Do I still need to send M997 Bn after uploading it or just run M98 P"config.g"?

    Thanks

    Looks like the zip file contains everything needed for the board firmware, expansion tool board firmwares and the DWC files.

    I don't know what version you're running specifically, but it may be best to update to 3.0 with it's zip file, and then 3.01 with it's zip file

    1. ref Zip file - Cool.
    2. ref 3.0 - Good point. I'd have to check but methinks it'll be something like MB6HC291919 for the main board and EXPHC28b4 for the expansion boards. I guess it'll do no harm to update to 3.0 first in any case.

    Do you happen to know if it's still necessary to send M997 Bn after uploading expansion board firmware?

    It should install it automatically. Use M115 B# (# = CAN address of each expansion board) to check that it worked.

    Well... then... report:

    In a Pi + 6HC + 2 x 3HC + 1HC system, the 6HC was firmware upgraded during the "sudo apt upgrade". The expansions and tool were not. I M997 each manually, and that went fine.

    @Danal We decided to upgrade only the main firmware via the 3.1.0 package but that may change in 3.2.0. You do have to run M997 B>=1 in SBC mode to update the expansion boards.

    Sorry - I'm still big thick. I've downloaded both RRF 3.0 and 3.1 zip files and extracted the contents into separate folders. I'm not seeing any DWC files that you indicated would be included, so I guess I still need to download the DWC zip separately yes? Or have I done something wrong?

    Also, I see "DuetFirmware_TOOL1LC.bin" which I'm guessing is for tool boards. So as I only have expansion boards, I don't need that yes?

    Finally, I see "Duet3_SDiap_MB6HC.bin. I think I already have that but I'm guessing this might be a later version so I ought to instal it yes?

    Cheers

    upload straight to dwc, no extraction first?

    Oh really? Cool👍

    Edit - things have moved on since December ☺



  • @deckingman might be a feature of dwc2, however from my point of view its always been like that even in RRF2. Then again I'm (relatively) new to the game

    Yes DWC has been updated by installing from a zip file for a very long time. But last time I updated the main board and expansion boards firmware back in December it was still done by uploading the individual firmware files. So updating everything, including all the boards firmwares as well as DWC from a single zip is new to me.



  • @deckingman said in Software bundle 3.1.0 now available:

    Didn't know it can be done like that?

    I always upload the two bin's and the DWC ask if I want to flash the updated firmware file. The "big" zip file has too much stuff, never tried uploading that one 🙂

    So far we are investigating two bug reports for the 3.1.0 release:

    1. One user has reported that he is getting occasional resets. The M122 report shows the reason is stack overflow from the Network task (NETW in the M122 report). If you encounter this issue, please see this thread https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/16390/3-1-0-firmware-reboots-periodically for what to do.

    2. Duet 3 with attached SBC fails to write the height map file after running G29. We are investigating this. Further information will be posted in this thread https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/16388/g29-not-writing-a-heightmap-csv.



  • @arhi Glad I'm not the only one who didn't know that (but I haven't tried it yet).



  • @dc42 Ahhh. Well in that case I'll hold off updating for now....

    Thanks. That's actually what I thought... I just read something into a post that wasn't there. 🙂
