Want to add my own start screen Duet2 wifi
I do not know if i can asked this here in this forum.
But i hope you understand me, and may someone help me.
I am Uwe, and are from Germany.
Since a half year i am a 3d printer, buy a Ender 5 , modiefied it with Duet Wifi...
This control system is so good, and i am really happy with this, that i build a second printer myself.
The printing area is 500 x 500 x 700 mm, build like Ender 5 .
Also i buy for this Duet2 Wifi control display and so on.
Both printers work wonderfull perfectly.
So now, i know this is a luxury problem , my luxury problem
I gave my big printer the name "Silent Goliath"
I hear that is possible to add on the software my own start logo.
@Duet3d , please forgive me,
I already prepared a picture like the manual says ,
But i am totaly stupid in programming. I try a whole day to make this.
So can i ask someone of you to invert my picture into this Software?
I could send you the picture, hopefully someone help me, and i think this is not a big job,
but nothing for me ! Sorry.
Believe me, i read it 100 times,
I understand these thing to impement .......
after a whole day trying, i gave up .
what part are you stuck at?
I totally don´t understand this :
There is a tool included in Tools/gobmp2c/(linux|macos|win) containing pre-compiled binaries for the three major operating systems. It's a command-line tool and can be used like follows:
$ ./bmp2c --help
Usage of ./bmp2c:
Output file. The default is to output to stdout. (default "-")
Use the -binary parameter to create splash screen and append it like this to the compiled firmware binary and provide the name of the input file as the last parameter e.g.
bmp2c -binary -outfile mysplashscreen.bin mysplashscreen.bmp
On Windows: Run this Windows command to append it to the binary: copy /b PanelDue-v3-5.0-nologo.bin+myimage.bin PanelDueFirmware.bin
Egypt pyramids ....... Laugh
Also, is there to modified the Panel Software or the Duet Board Software?
did you download the software?
you have to then start a command console
and execute the command in the folder where the bmp2c.exe is
Sounds like to create an atomic reactor for me.
Hope somebody can help me
Give that a shot. It should help automate the process a bit.
Again thank you very much for your help.
It was not easy to find the right size (KB) for the start screen!
So i am very proud to introduce you my big Printer "Silent Goliath"
And also my start Screen :
Thank you guys !

@uneumann36, I like your Never button.
Because for example i phone my wife to do this or this on the printer, she see the "Never" button! Lol.
