Expected Behaviour?



  • Duet Wifi, Panel Due, Kossel, Diamond Hotend, 12 tools defined, or 6 tools defined...
    Power on the printer....

    At this moment, should I expect to be able to select the hotend temp button and set a temperature like I can for the heat bed?
    -- I cannot. There are 2 Temp settings; Active and Standby. Setting a temp using the touch screens, Set, the temp appears for a moment then it disappears and temp is not set.
    -- Touching the area where the current temperature is displayed, turns the background yellow (I assume this indicates standby). I am then able to set the Standby temp but not Active temp.
    ..........................

    Is there a visual indication on the Paneldue as to which tool is currently selected like it does on the web gui?



  • @deckingman good to hear from you.
    Thanks for breaking that down a bit better.

    Lately I've been fighting with clolor fade/bleeding. Could this be a firmware bug too?
    A color (any of them) no matter how big the prime tower is, the back of the models print magenta in the back, and it slowly fades to the correct color by the time it gets to the front of the model. does this make sense? I will make a post later.

    Yes that makes perfect sense and is a well known phenomenon. Essentially, the filaments are combined but not truly mixed. So what comes out of the nozzle is akin to stripey toothpaste.
    Take a look at this blog post that I wrote some time back https://somei3deas.wordpress.com/2017/01/28/the-stripey-toothpaste-effect-of-the-diamond-hot-end/

    There isn't anything you can do about it apart from use transparent filament which will mask the effect. If you haven't already seen it, take a look at this that I printed with transparent PETG and T-Glass.

    At this time, there isn't a true mixing hot end (but I'm working on it ☺ ).

    I've moved the posts from this thread that were about DWC behaviour to a new thread.

    So I see - thanks.
