HELP! Duet 2 WiFi Configuration and DWC Upload Problems???
PCNoobNeedsMajorHelp last edited by
In need of major help! I've tried everything in the duet3D configuration tool and I honestly have no idea how to get my board to work with my printer/get everything set up to be able to print again. Upgrading from stock Marlin Board.
Here's what I've got and was wondering if I can pay someone to make me a .JSON file specific to my printer so I can basically Plug and Play this thing, because after 2 months of trying my best I've gotten almost nowhere with this and I'm losing hope fast.
-Printer: Ender 5 (400mm Lead Screw) Purchased Nov.2019
-Coordinate System: Cartesian
-Hotend/Drive System: Micro-Swiss All Metal Hotend Direct Drive (Tool Steel Nozzle)
*Replaced Micro-Swiss Heater Block with E3D Copper Block
-Power Supply: 24V 350w Mean Well
-Main Boards: (Old Board Creality3D Marlin V1.1.4) New Board Duet 2 WiFi Firmware v2.05
-Daughter Board: Type K Thermocouple Daughterboard
-Interface Panel: (Bought with the Duet 2 WiFi) 5i PanelDue Touchscreen
-Heater Cartridge: 24v 60w
-Thermistor/Thermocouple: Type K Thermocouple (I think MAX31856 on CS1 or CS2, not sure which)
-Build Surface: Garolite Sheet
- No BL Touch. (I bought one but want to get this figured out first before I complicate things further.) so for now just regular Z Motor and Endstop
-Wiring complete to the best of my knowledge
-Connected to Network and DWC
-All fans work as they should
-Tried about 30 different Config files, Ender 3 pro config file and custom configs, configs i got off of GitHub and nothing is working (I'm not a programmer and have no idea what to do or how to fix this)
-when I messed with something on the PanelDue my Z axis motor went berserk and was running into its Endstops *I had to emergency stop it
-I've checked forums on Duet3D, Reddit, Videos on YouTube, GitHub and nothing I can find is helping me. Everything was always catered to Ender 3's or Ender 5+. I know the Ender 3 has the same board but it has different overall axis locations and design with different dimensions, so I didn't feel comfortable using those files, plus I'm not sure how the direct drive effects things.
I've tried to copy the files directly onto the SD card with no avail, so I guess it probably only reads STL files
The config files I did try to use were immediately followed by "successful upload" on the DWC and then when I went to test things, I have a bunch of error codes and faults:
*Check IR Probe & PanelDue then press x endstop (there is a red LED lit up next to my x endstop)
- There is a red LED lit up next to the word FAULT on my Daughterboard
*Here is my board wired up! Duet board.jpg
*Here are the error codes I'm getting
My goal with this upgrade is to be able to print remotely as well as reach 300°c+ (I figured I just set the max to 350°c)
I'm printing with Nylon Kevlar for my company. So, for the last 2 months my production has been down and I really need to be able to start printing again. For real, I will pay someone to walk me through this over video chat or whatever, I am desperate!
-If you need any more pictures or info let me know and I'll get those to you guys
Thank You all, in advance for your time and effort with this message and my issue.
A single post is enough.
