DWC issues

  • I am experiencing some issues with DWC:

    • When print, it reports layer height 0.1 mm, while the actual is 0.2 mm. Attached the g-code file.
    • There are two slides for Tool Fan and Fan 0 which actually do the same thing, but I’m unable to hide completely one of the buttons and slide.
    • When use it with a smartphone, the interface seems might need some optimization. Any way for simpler customization ?

    The layer height is detected as being 0.1 because you have a Z move of 0.1 before the first layer. The Duet scans the file for the first Z move and assumes it's the first layer height.

    One solution would be to move your prep gcode into start.g located in the /Sys folder on the Duet. Start.g will get run at the start of the print before any of the sliced gcode.

    Or you could move those commands which appear to be part of your homing into the homeall.g file and simply call G28 to home.

  • @phaedrux, The solutions you describe, can be fine for a prairies redneck, in Europe we work at other level. There is also issue with total object high, so @chrishamm suppose to fix the interface.

    Wow, I see you've done your research. Do you know my address too? On the prairies we have a saying. "Go kick rocks." Now if you'll excuse me I'm late for my banjo lesson.

  • @mitko Suggest you read this https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/5909/guide-for-posting-requests-for-help

    Just the first line will do - the one that says "Please be civil, we are trying to help!"

  • Dear 'guest', people with your attitude dont deserve any help. Get back on facebook where everyone slags each other off.

  • @chas2706 I note that his original user name of "mitko" has changed to "guest". Perhaps the moderators have stepped in? Or maybe he has taken your advice and taken his bigoted racist comments eleswhere.

  • 3 cheers for that. I dont understand people who use facilities like this forum where valuable information and experience is supplied for free to everyone and they choose to revert to unnecessary remarks and sarcasm.

  • @chas2706, Sorry to disappoint you, but decided to create another account. Noticed this issue again at one on-line course @ Futurelearn, so it seems this matter needs more discussions. Have you ever lived in Canada, the Canadian Prairies ? As you can see from many Youtube videos many people are happily called themselves rednecks etc. On the other hand it is very disappointing to learn that some are finding the farming work as something unpleasant and not valuable. So, if I use the example respond structure provided by Phaedrux, (although this might be in contradiction with the forum policies) it would sound like: Go eat plastic and whatever junk those North Americans are cooking !

  • @Dimitar, no matter which way you put it your remarks to @Phaedrux sounded really nasty and unnecessary.
    Sorry and all that.

  • @chas2706, This might be something cultural – in general, Canada is both French and British based. In French - villager as meaning can be used as a funny word. Seen the movie - Les Visiteurs ? In fact the only time I heard this expression was from one Quebec born person. For me some English, Canadian ? expressions sound horrible – for example: a person is an asset. Like a person is an object on a balance sheet ...

    @deckingman, racist comments – I just made a comment @ FutureLearn, course: International Affairs: Globalisation, about why racism might be justifiable. From what I understand in UK when someone makes a racist comment might loose his/her job etc. In my opinion, such extreme negativism regarding racism is questionable. I invite all of you to present your views.

  • Im no longer getting involved in this.
    All I will say to you is that if you think that it is ok to make racist comments and the like and then make out you are just jesting and then say that it is perfectly acceptable where you come from then maybe you don't belong here on this forum?

  • @chas2706, OK
