DWC Not reporting filament amount used in R.R.F. 3.1



  • As the title says.

    Is this a known issue

    On machines with R.R.F 3.1.1 (2020-05-19b2) firmware.

    Latest web control on units running R.R.F-3

    And running Web Interface Version: 1.22.6 (edit, this is on the machine running the older firmware)

    The amount of filament used shows as N/A

    On my other machines still on R.R.F. 2xxx

    I am presented with the filament usage.

    This issue manifests itself across multiple slicers.

    Any one any ideas on how to get the DWC to show the amount of filament used (ideally with ideamaker)

    And running Web Interface Version: 1.22.6

    The current version for the web interface is 3.1.1

    what slicer are you using?



  • @Veti Please accept my apologies as I evidently didn't explain myself well enough, for you didn't get the part.

    "This issue manifests itself across multiple slicers" was not clear?

    Which means it is occurring with prusa slicer, kiss slicer, S3D and ideamaker.

    Don't use cura it's a hateful piece of software.

    Typo on Web control that's from the old printer, which highlights it even more in that the old setup works fine but the most recent versions dont, I have edited to reflect that

    Thats what I'm saying in both versions of DWC the filament usage shows N/A Everywhere.

    (BUT ONLY WITH R.R.F.3.11)

    And seeing as i'm in grumpy old fart mode..... maybe this is one for @chrishamm

    Why does the new version of the DWC throw up an error if you try to "revert to DWC1"

    it throws up the following error message:

    "Your Duet rejected the HTTP request: page not found
    Check that the SD card is mounted and has the correct files in its /www folder"

    But everything is in the correct location, (otherwise DWC2 wouldnt) and if you revert back to an older version of the DWC by replacing the contents of the www folder you can use DWC1 again.

    Evidently new isn't always better if it doesn't work as intended.

    Share your G-code files and we'll see what we can do.

    The "Revert to DWC1" link requires a DWC1 installation on your SD card - if there is none, you will get an error. Regardless of this, this link was temporary and it will be removed from the next DWC version - there's no point showing it any more because DWC1 is no longer actively maintained. If you want to stick with it though, delete index.html from your /www directory and DWC1 is automatically served via reprap.htm.

    Thank you for the info.

    Here is a small file done in idea maker mainly because that's what i use most.

    smart effector spacer.gcode

    What Duet are you using; and if it is Duet 3, is it with or without attached SBC?

    I have tested your file on a Duet WiFi running 3.2beta1 candidate, and it works for me (DWC version is 3.1.1). I don't think there have been any changes in that area since release 3.1.1, but I could be wrong.

  • Just tested that gcode file here. RRF 3.1.1, DWC 3.1.1, DuetWiFi server 1.23:

    Im running those files on Duet-2 Wifi Boards, all my Duet-3 equipped machines are in various stages of completion.... one was operational, but I decided to make some changes so its in pieces again.

    There is a queue !!! and alas only 24hrs in a day

    My Duet-3 Boards all have Rpi-3B+'s fitted of the g-code works for you i need to dig deeper as to why its not showing for me.

    If you like, you can try the candidate RRF 3.2beta1 at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3azy1njy3ayjsbp/AACquxr2m00eV568RZg5QG5wa?dl=0.
