Pimp my PanelDue



  • Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if and how it would be possible to edit the Panel Due screen interface. I saw a few threads where people showed different icon designs or even splash screens, but I have no idea how they managed to do that.
    Is there a thread or a tutorial somewhere? My searches were unfruitful.

    I'd also like to know aside from icons and splashscreen, can we add functions or edit the information displayed?

    Thanks in advance!

    The splash screen can be changed with these instructions: https://github.com/Duet3D/PanelDueFirmware

    Not sure what you mean about the icons. Do you have an example? There are some visual themes to choose from in the settings page.

    For any real customization you would need to alter the firmware.

    Thanks for the instructions regarding the splash screen!.

    I mean designing my own icons styles for things like homing, hotend, control, move, print, console and whatnot, also changing the background, changing the icons positions, well basically creating my own theme entirely.

    No offense since it is not extremely important anyway, but I'm not a big fan of any of the themes designs.

    I'd also like the paneldue to be able to display the bed height map, I don't know if it's feasible? That would be useful in my case to help leveling the bed, instead of having to go back and forth to my computer.

    Well the firmware is open to customize if you're so inclined.

    Not sure about the heightmap. It's a very limited ram device. A tablet running DWC would be maybe an easier option. Or a tablet running DueUI. https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/13970/dueui-release-3-0-1-beta2-available



  • @MrDui , if you want to make changes to the paneldue's firmware and if you are reasonably proficient with programming, I would start with forking the repository on github, setting up the necessary tool chain (compilers, etc), compile/build it and download the binary you generated to paneldue. At this point you will just need to change the sofware the way you like.
