Duet 3 + Tool Board Extruder/Retraction Issue



  • My hardware:
    Duet3 board, Tool distribution board, Tool board and RPi4. I'm running latest released firmware.

    After about month long debugging my random inconsistent extrusions (replacing motors, heater blocks, heaters, nozzles even complete extruder replacement) , I temporary connected my extruder motor to main board and I can say inconsistent extrusion issue has disappeared.

    I tried Firmware retraction and Slicer retraction, firmware refraction effect is worst.
    My retraction settings: Distance 0.6, Speed 7mm/s . This issue is less pronounced when retraction is not used.

    As you see on the picture when extruder motor is connected to toll, it generates blobs(over extruding) and parts on some layers are missing (under extruding)

    Defect in firmware of defective board?

    If you are running tool board firmware 3.1, then it could be that you are getting hiccups on the tool board (which you can check by doing a M122 report for the tool board). If that is the reason, then upgrading the tool board firmware to 3.2beta1 should fix it.

    It looks to me that it's retracting, but retracting too late in the game. this could explain the blobs at the end of the line and under retractions on the middle of line. Tool Board does reports hiccups constantly.

    I will gladly upgrade the firmware to the latest beta if I can do it safely from the DWC. If it fails, I would most likely have issues with recovery.

    Why so many blocked and suspended CAN bus messages?

    In future can you copy and paste the text of the M122 rather than a screen shot?

    So you are getting a lot of hiccups on the tool board, so perhaps try the new beta?

    is 7mm/s correct for your retraction speed?

    Retraction speed is 7 mm/s, any value higher that that was performing extremely worst when stepper connected to the tool board.

    I didn't install beta yet. I'm willing to do so, but a little confused in the instructions for installing unstable version using SBC and DWC.

    What about bunch of blocked and suspended CAN bus commands on the Duet3 board itself?:
    CanReceiv(suspended,3388) CanSender(suspended,1392) CanClock(blocked,1436)

    Those do not refer to messages. The clue is the "Tasks:" label at the start of the line.

    Can you please point me to how to update to latest beta? What files do I need to download update DWC (looks like it's required for new beta) what bin files do I need to update Duet3 and tool board?

    I'm looking at this guide right now:

    This is for a specific case for updating to 3.0 final from 3.0 beta 12.

    To update to the 3.2 beta2 using a SBC you can add the unstable repository on the pi and then use sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade as usual.
