Someone help



  • It has been over three months since I rebuilt my printer. I still am not working is there no easy way just to get started without all the messing I am doing?? Would it be easier to buy a new Duet as I have made one big boob some were. I don't do computers if I have to mess with changing to many things, I am sick of the message This printer only supports binary commands. when I put in M997 S1 0r 2. Is there away someone could connect to my computer and fix it for me or do I find an other controller??????



  • Very unlikely that you need a new controller. Unless you've burned something up physically. Other than that, no amount of mistaken configuration hurts anything.

    .

    Having said that, Mike, I am going to be very direct and harsh: The rest of you post comes across as a very whiny way to ask someone to "do your work" for you. And hobby work at that. So, speaking for me: No way. While I speak only for me, I predict you will get very little response, for these exact reasons.

    Another reason you'll get very little response from the way you've phrased things: Your title "Someone Help" contains no information. A much better title would be "Seeking someone to help with initial setup" or similar.

    Furthermore, you don't say what kind of printer, you don't say what you have tried or not tried, what is working or isn't. Again, the theme is that your post is missing any information that would actually allow someone to help you (were they so inclined). You don't even say which model of the Duet you have.

    Perhaps you could post again, and say what kind of printer, what kind of controller (Duet? Which version?), and post your existing configuration.h file.

    .

    And, again, being direct: The duet is one of the easiest to configure controllers, with some of the best documentation, in existence.

    If you are finding the Duet difficult or beyond your ability/patience/frustration level, perhaps it would be best to spend the money to get a printer that "just works out of the box". They cost a lot more, but they do not require any configuration. An example would be a Makerbot.
