A couple of DWC odd things



  • Hi,

    Current firmware info for my machine:

    0_1534888993116_Duet Firmware for MK_1.jpg

    I've noticed a couple of funny things happening in DWC that I do not understand.

    While printing this appeared:

    0_1534889043224_Duet Web Page Funny - Layer 25 of 24.jpg

    It has happened more than once and sometimes there are several layers reported past the "max".
    ..
    ..

    When issuing a G30 S-1 command on a machine when no Z-probe, after adjusting the Z position using the jog buttons I get this (the M292 line):

    0_1534889145487_Duet Web Page Response to G30 S-1.jpg

    Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    Frederick

    The first issue sounds like a problem with the firmware extracting the object height and/or layer height from the GCode file. Sadly there is no standard way for slicers to provide this information.

    The issue with G30 S-1 looks to me like a firmware bug. I will try to reproduce it. Had you already homed the Z axis when it happened?

    I understand about layer number issue - just wanted to be sure it wasn't something important that I needed to fix.

    As to the GS30 S-1 issue I'm almost positive that I had homed the machine BUT I will do it again just to make sure.

    I cannot do it right now as the machine is busy printing.

    Thanks.
