Is config.json edit needed to add 3 Z motors? I'm using Duet3

  • Option to add multiple independent Z motors is not available in the configuration. How do I add it? Is adding drive mapping for multiple Zs using M586 and Assigning leadscrews positions using M671 will be enough?


    M584 X0.0 Y0.1 Z0.2:0.3:0.4 E1.0                   ; set drive mapping
    M671 X-15:100:215 Y190:-10:190 S0.5 	    ; leadscrews at rear left, front middle, rear right

    Any help will be appreciated.

    @evomotors Unfortunately it's a limitation of the current configuration tool. Updating the tool to allow configuration of multiple motors per axis is on our work list, so will happen, just not sure when.

    Until then, yes, manually updating your config.g is the way to add drive mapping for multiple motors and leadscrew positions. It's good to become familiar with the gcodes, config.g and other files in the sys folder, so you can further customise your machine beyond what can be achieved with the configuration tool.
