Extruder Drives error ( Drive 0 = 9999.9)

  • Hi community, this is my first post at this blog, so first of all, thanks in advance for any kind of help, everything is welcome!

    I am trying to print with dual extruders and at some point the extruder stops extruding material and on the status screen I can see that my Drive 0 has reached 9999.9, and it is not working anymore.

    This happens randomly during the print, and I don't have any kind of idea about why this is happening.


    Any kind of help is more than welcome, thanks.

  • @Oriol said in Extruder Drives error ( Drive 0 = 9999.9):

    M350 X16 Y16:16 Z16 U16 V16 E16:8 I1 ; Configure microstepping with interpolation

    this does not work. the duet wifi can only do interpolation at x16

    ; Configuration file for Duet Ethernet (firmware version 1.20 or newer)

    if you really are on firmware veresion 1, you need to update.

  • In general settings says that the version I am using is Duet Web Control 2.0.4
    Is this related to your comment? Thnaks.

  • post the output from M115

  • 2c3ecd38-0760-4006-86d7-47b824cde8b5-image.png

  • please update to at least 2.05.1

    better would be rrf3, but that means a changed config.

  • Great, I will try it and see if it works. Thanks.

    Can you post the gcode file you're trying to print?
    Do you get any error messages in the console?
