Just a question on endstops behavior

  • I have a machine with optical endstops where they get triggered when I use all the print volume, this machine is using smoothieboard and the endstops are working only during the homing fase so this is not a problem.

    I am planning to install the duet and I am worried that the firmware will stop the print if one of the endstops will get triggered.
    can I go with the duet or I have to change the endstops position ?


  • On my printer at least, most moves do not take the endstops into account, so as long as the printer motion remains within the acceptable defined range of motion.

    The endstop switches are used only during homing, unless you create macro files to monitor them at other times. So you need not worry about triggering them during a print.
