Impressed!



  • I received my DuetWifi yesterday (with IR probe and Panel).
    Very impressed so far.

    • Wifi working (occasional dropout, but I've a closer Access point that can be used.

    • Motion on XYZ, 16x with interpolation is much smoother than the Ramps+Polo at 16x

    • Love the Web Interface.

    • Nice to see Crimp housing and crimps included!

    I'm a bit stuck on end-stops. I'll re-wire as N/C (or at least double-check what I have). Homing appears a bit different than Marlin. I've disabled Z Probe for now (just using Z end-stop on my MendelMax).
    But it lifts Z a few mm then travels towards the switch but manually pressing the switch doesn't stop motion.

    The End-stop switch is wired across the Input and GND (which appears correct as the input has a 3V3 pullup)

    It's early days, I only had about 90mins on it last night, so hope to get it homing tonight and possibly the heated bed running.

    Hi Jason

    Glad you like it 🙂

    For your Z end stop theconfiguration may be setup to use a probe and be for a delta printer. Have a look on the Wiki at Configuring RepRapFirmware for a Cartesian printer. You will.need to change a couple of settings in config.g with M574 and M208 gcodes
    For a full explanation of all the gcodes check out the gcode page on the RepRap wiki.

    Your homez.g and homeall.g files are probably set up to use the Z probe for homing. To use a microswitch instead, see https://duet3d.com/wiki/Configuring_RepRapFirmware_for_a_Cartesian_printer#Homing_files.



  • Aw, thanks guys. Help appreciated. I've limited time right now and not being with the printer in the day job makes it harder to get going on a fairly new board.

    I did use the Web Based on config tool (found last night), but I'm confident I'll get some good progress tonight.



  • Homing sequence complete 🙂 Found the homez.g file and homeall.g files, tweaked and very easy once I'd grokked it.
    Very flexible approach!

    Thanks for your help!



  • Yep, I'm loving mine too.

    Really getting into the finer tweaking regarding extrusion, and am seeing better and better results.

    Web control is awesome, and I can see why they couldn't understand me wanting to use SD cards (unless wifi was down).

    From what I understand, you can upload (I guess to the onboard SD Card) and print from that. If (or when in my case…) Wifi Drops out, it doesn't really matter.

    It's a shame I'm mega busy at the moment, partying tonight, gigging tomorrow, family time Sunday, then back to the day job Monday.
    I can't see me having much time on it this weekend.
