Firmware 1.19RC5 released - last chance to report issues


  • administrators

    I've just released firmware 1.19RC5. My hope is that I can release this labelled as 1.19 release firmware tomorrow. So this is your last chance to report any problems with it before the release.

    If you are not already using 1.19RCF or recent 1.19 beta firmware, be sure to read the upgrade notes at https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/blob/dev/WHATS_NEW.md.

    The changes since RC4 are:

    • Simplified the tracking of virtual extruder position. This should mean that relative extrusion commands in start gcode no longer require a G92 E0 reset afterwards in Cura.
    • Fixed an issue with volumetric extrusion
    • Fixes issues with resurrection when using absolute or volumetric extrusion
    • Corrected the date stamp in the resurrect.g file
    • The bed levelling wizard now displays the required levelling screw adjustments


  • I'm not seeing anything anywhere about the pressure advance issues that I was having with multiple extruders (which were not present with a single extruder tool). This thread https://www.duet3d.com/forum/thread.php?id=1999&p=2. I know there is a lot of garbage in that thread so maybe it got overlooked?



  • M292 BUG
    if set Z0 appear the jog control ,also is set Z1 ?
    Thanks David for all time devoloper this FW

    I had a look at that and tried to work out what might be going on, but I failed to find anything. I'm not at all sure that I can do anything more without having a mixing hot end myself, unless I have a sudden clash of inspiration.

    All Z motors are always moved together, except in the special case of using multiple independently-driven Z motors to perform bed leveling.



  • David would it help if I sent you a diamond hotend ( I have one I bought but unlikely to use dont have the heatsinks for it tho)

    That is a real bummer. Is there any testing I can do to help?

    I guess in the meantime you ought to amend the wiki to state that pressure advance won't work with mixing hot ends, otherwise you'll get people posting that perimeters are being printed misshapenly, jerkily and slowly.

    I've got a spare I could lend you as well - in fact I have all the components to make a complete 3 colour Diamond (nozzle, heat sinks, and insulator) apart from heater and thermistor. Send me an email if you want me to post it to you.

    Thanks, both of you. There is a SCARA printer kit on its way to me, and perhaps that may be able to be modified to accept a Diamond. I don't think either of my existing printers (Ormerod and large delta) could handle the size of a Diamond.

    sorry David is my error on typing !!!
    M291: Display message and optionally wait for response
    The parameter Z0 also the Z1 visualize the jog on message box

    Could you simulate it? By that I mean just hook up 3 extruder motors and do an air print. I could probably supply a gcode file and config file that'll demonstrate the problem.



  • RC5 seems to be ok for me.
    Where do I find the debug information? - I see no difference in the console when enabling debugging for all modules.

    Regarding the requested tool change gcode, here you go:

    G1 X119.931 Y106.118 E5.8007

    Debug info is sent to the USB port only.

    Kulitorum, thanks for your feedback. I'll assume that the slow homing issue you reported with a previous RC is fixed now.

    Nobody else has reported any issues with RC5, so I'll assume that no news is good news. Expect a 1.19 release in the next day or two.



  • OK, I am ready to try again 1.19, but I fail to find "the important upgrade notes". There are references in "what's new" page, but there is no actual link.



  • Is there any way to set the speed of a G1 P1 command?

  • Also, any positive movement with my U axis, with S1 defined ignores any F data and just runs at full speed. RC5

    Upgrade notes are always in the WHATS_NEW file in the root of my RepRapFirmware github repository, as linked to in the first post in this thread. If you look past the list of new features (which is rather long for this release) and the list of bug fixes, you will find the upgrade notes.

    The P parameter is just a modified for the G1 command, so the speed of movement is set by the F parameter as usual.
