Web GUI different



  • Hi
    I have recently setup a Mini Kossel from think3dprint3d.
    Firmware Name: RepRapFirmware for Duet
    Firmware Electronics: Duet 0.85
    Firmware Version: 1.18.1 (2017-04-09)
    Web Interface Version: 1.15a

    When I use chrome to access the duet by it's IP address I see different machine steps to when I access the same duet by DNS name. I only really noticed when I was setting the probe by T3P3's instructions. The DNS version Z Buttons are -100, -10, -1, -.1 +.1, +1, +10 and +100. The IP version has -50, -5, -.5, -.05, +.05, +.5, +5, and +50. I can't see any othe differences but I have not checked too much.



  • You've enabled the "Half Z Movements" setting on one of them. The web interface settings are saved in client-side storage, so they're not shared if you access the printer through different addresses.

    I don't particularly like this system. Settings are easily lost, and aren't shared between devices. I wish the settings were saved server-side instead.



  • I guess the web interface could be adapted do this without new firmware, using the rr_upload/rr_download calls to save/load settings data.



  • Hi
    I didn't think of data being stored clientside. I must say that I dislike having persistent clientside settings. It would be a lot better to have the GUI to report what is actually going on on the printer and to be consistent to all connections.



  • @tomasf:

    Thanks for that info. That is not something I would have expected. Glad to get it into my head now, as my expectations (coming from OctoPrint) were that the web-based GUI was acting as a "window" into the printer operations.

    DWC does indeed give you a window into the printer operation, however it lets you customise that window. There are some aspects that you would not want to store server side. For example, you might choose a fast polling rate when using a PC next to the printer, and a slower rate when using a mobile device.
