Error Uploading GCODE files

  • The DuetWifi slows down and ultimately kicks out an error while uploading even small gcode files. The WIFI signal is strong at the computer and DuetWifi, which are just few feet apart. It seems to happen when there special characters in the file name (e.g. parentheses). Is there a limit to the length of the file name and are special characters allowed?

    Most punctuation characters are allowed in filenames. However, parentheses in GCode enclose comments, so if filenames in GCode commands contain parentheses then the filename needs to be enclosed in double quotation marks. Duet Web Control and PanelDue both do this anyway, unless you are using old versions.

    Which main firmware, DuetWiFiServer, and Duet Web Control versions are you using?

    SD card slowdown occurs when the SD card becomes very fragmented, especially if it is formatted using a small cluster size. You can use M39 to find the cluster size. It should be 32K or 64K.

  • Thanks for info. Cluster size is 64K.
    Just upgraded today to:
    Firmware Version: 2.02RC4(RTOS) (2018-11-18b5)
    WiFi Server Version: 1.21
    Web Interface Version: 1.22.5
    Will post again if it continues to occur.
    Thanks 🙂
