Weird Z behavior with first attempt with RTOS firmware on Delta

  • Greetings All,

    I finally upgraded my DuetWiFi today after not using it since early May. I upgraded from the release version of 1.21 to the current Beta:

    Firmware Name:			RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet
    Firmware Electronics:	Duet WiFi 1.0 or 1.01
    Firmware Version:		2.01beta1(RTOS) (2018-06-23b1)
    WiFi Server Version:	1.21
    Web Interface Version:	1.21.2-b1

    I've tested each access, the endstops, the fans, and the heaters. All seem to work OK, but when I use the Machine Control tab to try to move X, Y, or Z, the corresponding carriages move, but I was expecting Z to move the effector up and down, X to move left and right, Y to move forward and back. It is acting as if it does not know it is a Delta.

    This is a T3P3 Kossel Mini V3-based machine.

    I'm pretty sure whatever I am doing is user error. Please help this user see the error of his ways. 🙂

    Here is my config.g

  • I had the same problem. Downgrade the web interface (www content) and it's working again. Problem is the Java Script in the Web Interface.

  • @autsch I will try that - thank you!

  • As @autsch suggested, reverting from 1.21.2-b1 to 1.21.1 for the web interface fixed my issue.

    I really appreciate that help. I did not think the DWC would have caused an issue like that!

  • Shit happens, John 😉

    Btw: New Version is out and working
