makerbot repliactor 2 conversion



  • Makerbot

    hello im trying to have my makerbot replicator 2 use a duet board. I saw this idea from someone and luckly they posted the files so i gave it a shot. IMm trying to get my board to home but now getting the error when homing any axis "g0/g1 insufficient axes home. here the homexconfig. its a bit odd looking from looking at others but cant find the problem. here was the orginal place i found the idea https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/1946/makerbot-replicator-2x-duetwifi-edition/2

  • @jxgreer please post config and homeall and which hardware and firmware version you use. Are any axis homed, which axis do not home?

    What firmware version are you running on the Duet? Send M115 to check. Should be either 2.05.1 or 3.1.1.

    I'm guessing you're running an older version that doesn't support the H2 switch on G1 moves.

    @jxgreer I expect you’re using an old versions of the firmware that doesn’t support the H parameter in G1 moves (RRF 2.01 or earlier). Send M115 to the Duet and post the response. Post your config.g too, as that may be set up for a particular firmware, too.

    Your config is for RRF3, and your installed firmware is 2.0.

    From the web interface, upload the following zip files to the /sys folder one at a time. This should trigger a firmware update and update the DWC files as well after each one.

    https://github.com/Duet3D/RepRapFirmware/releases/download/2.05.1/Duet2Firmware-2.05.1.zip

    https://github.com/Duet3D/RepRapFirmware/releases/download/3.0/Duet2and3Firmware-3.0.zip

    https://github.com/Duet3D/RepRapFirmware/releases/download/3.1.1/Duet2and3Firmware-3.1.1.zip

    Once you've updated all 3 you should send M115 to verify that you're on 3.1.1. Then send M98 P"config.g" to see if any errors are generated from your config.g and report them here for further troubleshooting.

  • @Phaedrux also looks like now i can move it. when i press home it moves a bit but doesnt go to the sensors on any of the axis.



  • I just did that swap, from a replicator 2 to duet 3. check your chat Ill help you set it up
