kit maker who uses the Duet WiFi 2 in their kits



  • I have just about had it it with the various Rambo boards. I had hoped that Prusa would leave the the things behind bit he has yet another Rambo derived board in his MK3
    Other than the rather pricey SeeMeCNC Rostock V 3.2 delta I have not yet found a high quality kit with the Duet WiFi2 so I thought this would be the place to ask for links to that sort of kit makers... not looking for a delta at this time so either moving bed like the prusa or a fixed build plate machine and at this time just filament extruded printers.
    Thanks

  • I'm not aware of any kits that come with the Duet Wifi (maybe someone else knows of some) but you can add the Duet Wifi to any printer you like.



  • Thanks @phaedrux The SeeMeCNC V3.2 delta kit does come with a Duet Wifi and costs a grand on sale
    https://www.seemecnc.com/collections/3d-printers/products/rostockmax-v3-2-diy-kit-black
    they also have a kit version of their all the bells and whistles printer ($3000 assembeled and tested) for $2000
    https://www.seemecnc.com/collections/3d-printers/products/artemis-300 it also uses the Duet 2 wifi

    but I am not looking for a delta and I require a bit more hand holding at my advanced age so A kit or at worst a set of step by step instructions to modify say a Prusa MK3 by replacing the Ensy it comes with with a duet 2 wifi with panel du.. could work but I fear i am too old and ossified of brain to step off into a from scratch project.

    Another company that sells a kit using the Duet Wifi/Duet Ethernet is Ultibots... but that is a delta too.

    There is also the new Crane printer from printm3d.com, which uses the Duet Maestro. I've just take delivery of one, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.



  • @dc42 Thank you
    I will keep an eye on the Crane It looks very interesting but it is not yet shipping in volume as a finished product from the way its web page is structured around a sort of 'kickstarter' pricing framework... I have been burned by this sort of marketing in the past so I am rather uncomfortable with it...
    I guess I need to either reconsider the SeeMeCNC V3.2 or just wait a bit for a other builders to incorporate your Duet 2 boards in their printers.



  • Delta won't hurt you... ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ultibots makes kits that are VERY close to what I'd scratch build. I don't have one, but from looking at their specs and parts list, I'd recommend them.



  • @danal Thanks I am not opposed to Deltas per say but the look to be a more complex geometry .

    How would you rate the D300VS-PLUS 3D PRINTER - DIY KIT at $1020 including 7i touchscreen
    against the
    ROSTOCKMAX V3.2 DIY KIT at $999 (sale price and an extra $99 for the 7" touch screen
    the extra $80 bucks is not the issue for me it is the quality of their materials and support and how good the instructions are and activity of the community for outside the company support...

    The SeeMeCNC forums seem to have collapsed over the last year or so from about an hour this morning looking over them, but Ultibots if they have a user forum I could not find it and outfits that use twitter and Facebook for support are a big question mark for me as I don't use either and find the concept of them rather creepy. That both are using a modern motion controller from here is a big plus
    My Background with this sort of thing comes from old fashioned punch tape CNC from back in the stone age and building my own 2 1/2 D router with a rambo motion control hence my distaste for the rambo... that machine is now partly disassembled awaiting inspiration. About 3 years ago I was involved with a solid modeling software company and so I have a good handle on that and with basic G code so I am nit a total nephrite but I come into this from the subtractive side of making things.



  • If a delta isn't what you're after, there are some good DIY CoreXY options that have detailed bill of materials and instructions. There are even AliExpress sellers that have entire hardware kits. You'd still need electronics and printed parts. So depending on how turn key you wanted the kit to be, that may be an option?

    I'd go with the Ultibot, mostly because I'm a little hinky about the arms on the SeeMeCNC. They MAY be fine... they just don't appeal to my eye. The Ultibot carbon tubes with Trick Laser ball ends feel like a better setup.

    Other than that, extremely similar machines, really.

    Yeah, I'd just ask questions here.

    My Background with this sort of thing comes from old fashioned punch tape CNC from back in the stone age and building my own 2 1/2 D router with a rambo motion control hence my distaste for the rambo... that machine is now partly disassembled awaiting inspiration. About 3 years ago I was involved with a solid modeling software company and so I have a good handle on that and with basic G code so I am nit a total nephrite but I come into this from the subtractive side of making things.

    If you do want to get back into 2.5 D CNC, take a look at the TinyG. They have a few known oddities, and teh developers have moved on to the TinyG 2.0... but... the "constant jerk" motion planner in the TinyG DOUBLED the speed of my CNC Router (as vs. Mach + breakout, and/or Mach + SmoothStepper), and produces better cuts at that speed.

    You need a "UI" to go with TinyG. Chilipeppr is web/browser based and works OK. CNCjs can be browser or stand-alone desktop and is what I eventually choose (in desktop mode).



  • I will apologize up front for this not being a kit printer, but the new Ultra One from MakerGear uses the Duet Ethernet. I saw the machine at IMTS in Chicago last week, and it's a very nice, solid unit. It's clearly geared towards "professional" use, with a $10K price tag.

    @Mustrum, if you are still looking for a kit that uses the Duet WiFi then this post may be of interest https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/1841/railcore-ii-corexy/79.



  • @dc42 thanks the railcore looks interesting,

    Plastic metal, as to the 10 grand printer that is way out of my price range... I can stretch to a grand or a few hundred more but not that much over.

    I am very much in the research mode right now this is something of a retirement hobby for me or I hope it will be. I am into my 70s and not as quick as I once was but I believe in constantly learning new skills to stave off ossification of the brain... I want to put off that event for as long as possible as I have an abiding curiosity about what the future will hold. In the 1950s when we were taught โ€œ duck and coverโ€ at school I never expected that we as a planet would survive without global thermonuclear war to make it into this century and so itโ€™s all bonus time for me ๐Ÿ˜€
