Hi-Temperature Duet3d ethernet
I have a fusion3 f410 printer I would like to upgrade for hi-temperature printing. Where I need more help is to unlock the temperature for the hotend as the company have their own firmware and wont unlock it for me or recompile..
I have upgraded the following:
-pt100 hotend temperature sensor
-already had copper block
-got NozzleX and tungsten volcano nozzles
Planning on the following upgrade as well:
-relocating extruder for shorter bowden
-heated chamber with air filtration system and spool dryer
-Automatic activated 10lbs fire extinguisher
As it is, panel and web interface wont accept anything over 300C
I would like to unlock this max temp by either:
-Recompile with good parameter and hopefully find a way to not loose macros and panel interface
-Full upgrade of the firmware with good parameter, transfer macros and update config files to match newer version
Would be good to have a way to fallback on stock firmware in case of problem
Dont know where to start, how to backup old firmware ?

the best way is to replace controller and LCD with openSource hardware. You can leave the original controller and firmware untouched but instead have access to all the latest options for FREE.
Duet3D controllers with ReprapFirmware can be adapted to almost any printer.
The printer use Duet3d Ethernet, sorry I forgot to put it in the message, was in the title only
M115 FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet Ethernet FIRMWARE_VERSION: Fusionware 1.18.1 RC2 ELECTRONICS: Duet Ethernet 1.0 FIRMWARE_DATE: 2017-05-15

@b3nitro can you access the config.g file?
Might be worth dumping the contents of the sys folder.
But ultimately, RRF is open source so if they won't release the source @T3P3Tony should get involved#

Thanks for your help,
This is as really good start !
Any idea on how to compile for high temp the firmware [https://github.com/Fusion3-Design/1.18.1-Source-Code]
Just to try out before I go deeper in updating the firmware ?

@b3nitro its going to be really really difficult to compile that source as its based on 1.18 (which is ancient) and all the other repo's it depends on weren't tagged at that time so its going to be even harder to try and find the right commit to include up to.
If i were you, I'd dump the files off the SD card, upgrade to 2.05.1 (or even 3.3) and generate a new config using the config tool and then compare and update based on the backed up files.
If you want to keep the custom paneldue firmware you'll need to stick to 2.05.1 but if you aren't bothered, go all the way to 3.3
Thanks for your help again, I dont mind having a different screen layout
I dont have SD card as it came second hand, seen on the forum looks complicated to copy the old firmware as backup..
Found the config tool [https://configtool.reprapfirmware.org/Start] went through it and answered my next question wich was how to set max temp
I'm wondering if I should just buy another board to keep the stock one as backup and put new firmware on the new board
This link is really usefull:
Is it as simple as it looks like ? I mean save my old values like step /mm/accel etc to make the new firmware and upload through the web interface ?
Where I'm not sure is for the z-probe, configurator said no more 3/4/5step leveling and going to mesh leveling. My printer is wired with probe leveling on z axis with low end stop, then nozzle toutch the bed in 4 corners. Any idea for those settings ?
So I think I will go to 2.05 first, thought I've found the value to change for max temps in the config tool but actually it just the M143 parameter that you can set to what you want withing the value set in firmware. Now before I install the new firmware I need to know where and how to change the max temp
Any ideas ?
Thank for your help!

Max temp of which?
I think you've found it with M143 already.
You are right dont know why it didn't worked before but I think I only tried from panel wich doest seem to work from there.
Did work from web interface right now, just tried 305 in the slicer and looks like its working as well!
Not sure I need to upgrade firmware then!
