Duet Maestro users: can you share a set of menu files?


  • administrators

    If you have a Duet Maestro with a 12864 display and you have created your own menu files for it, are you willing to share them? I'd like to publish sample sets of menu files suitable for the most common machine types, for example Cartesian and Delta printers with a single nozzle and extruder. But my UI design skills are poor and my time is limited, so I'd rather not write them myself.

    The 12864 display support has been improved in firmware 2.0RC5, so you may wish to enhance your menus by using the following new features:

    • You will need to include a 'value N501' item in your menu if you want to display 1-line messages sent using the M117 command;
    • You can now use 'alter N521' to provide babystepping;
    • You can use 'alter N510' to display the user X coordinate and provide a live X adjustment facility. Similarly for Y and Z.
    • You can now left-, centre- or right-align text, alter and value items. So if you are displaying two temperatures in the form '123 / 210' you may wish to right-align the first one and left-align the second one. If you are displaying a % or degree-symbol after a number, you may wish to right-align that number.

    If any of you need help converting a bitmap image of the correct size to a file for use by the 'image' command, I can help with that.

    There are no prizes for the best ones, but the community will thank you for them!



  • Would be good to know how to convert bitmaps to compatible format. Is it hex files with img extention?


  • administrators

    The image format is:

    Byte 0: Image width in pixels (call this n)
    Byte 1: Image height in pixels
    Next (n+7)/8 (rounded down to integer) bytes: Pixel data for the top row. The MSB of the 1st pixel is the the leftmost pixel.
    Next (n+7)/8 bytes: Pixel data for the second row. The MSB of the 1st pixel is the the leftmost pixel.
    .. and so on.



  • That sound Hebrew. Any software to convert?



  • I have modified the Crane Quad menus to my needs for dual extrusion config but it is not quite complete.
    Just need a time to finalise, the menus I haven't needed / used yet.
    Happy to share as long using the Crane menus as a base will not be an issue.

    I don't think that will be an issue, but I am checking with M3D.
