Not really an Issue...

  • I just noticed that the DWC and PanelDue 7i show progress Filament/File/Layer Time in a different order then each other. Also, the progress bar on each are not based on the same info. Now that I have the PanelDue, I just progress locally on the screen, and the DWC using my smartphone. And was confused for about 30 seconds as I thought the print was ~50% done (PanelDue 7i) and checked the DWC ~30 minutes later to see 26%.

    Firmware Name: RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet
    Firmware Electronics: Duet Ethernet 1.02 or later + DueX5
    Firmware Version: 2.02RC6(RTOS) (2018-12-15b2)
    Web Interface Version: 1.22.5

    PandelDue7i: 1.22.1

    I don't have time to play with this now, but is there an easy way to change what is displayed on the LCD? If I did change it, I assume it would be overwritten or stop working with every update, and I will have to redo it.
    Is this assumption correct? Is there already something out there documented on how to do this?

    You could customize the firmware:
    You'd have to either maintain your own fork, or get your changes merged into the main branch if you wanted to stay current with official releases.

    I'm not sure what you mean about Filament/File/Layer Time being in a different order to each other. They look to be in the same order to me. They are even updating at the same time with the same values.

    Only difference is that I'm on an older V2 paneldue and 2.02 RC7.

  • These images were taken pretty close in time to each other. The time left estimates are only different because of the slightly different times they were taken.
    But you can see the differences in % complete/bar and order of estimates listed. It appears the % complete is based on the first time left estimate, whatever it shows.

    Ah, I see you're on mobile. Seems like the order is different there.

  • @Phaedrux
    Your right. It only shows up that way on the phone version of the Duet2 Page. That's pretty weird. I wonder if anyone else has noticed that. Now that, that mystery is at least better understood....

    Still wondering why the PanelDue 7i % complete is so far off/different then what DWC displays?

  • Progress bar on panel due based on where in the file it is progress bar on DWC depends on what it reads from the gcode file, if the gcode file has information about filament usage, it will use that -- there is a tail section appended by S3D which indicates filament usage. The firmware figures out time left for file position, filament usage and layer time -- the progress bar in DWC doesn't use that (I'm having an issue with that myself with ditto printing since the DWC progress bar is very confused). If filament usage is not available the progress bar in DWC goes by layer height position, provided it's the same -- current out of total, otherwise as a last resort it takes % printed as reported by the firmware -- it's rather confusing why DWC does so much on it's own to figure out progress.
