my extruder with an external drive. I have the expansion board plugged in with all the step, dir, ena wiring correct
can you upload pic pf the wiring?
or explain how to tap the enable,step and dir?
is step+/step- --> +A/-A
dir+/dir- --> +B/-B
on the expansion board 4 pin driver connector?
where is the enable plug to?
is it a different connector on the expansion board ?
i using duet 3 MB6HC(main board) and expansion 3HC is it possible with that?
i missing the wiring part.
@dc42 went through the same set up process as described in test and calibrate Z probe, same results as before, it moves down 10 mm then triggers then stops. I did nottice, as it is moving towards the X-Y home position, the IR sensor flashes 3 times like it is just initialized. Never done that before either.
Perhaps you have a bad crimp connection in the sensor cable, so that one of the 3 wires disconnects at certain XY positions?
You can use Duet Web Control or PanelDue to simulate printing a file, which will give you an accurate print time. In Duet Web Control, Go to the GCode Files page (or GCode Jobs if you are using DWC 2.0beta), right click on the file you want, and click Simulate. When the simulation completes it will tell you how long it will take to print. It also writes the simulated time to the end of the file so that it can be retrieved later.
PanelDue and DWC 2.0beta display the simulated print time as part of the file properties. DWC2.0 beta also uses the simulated time to give you an estimated print completion time when you come to print the file.
@phaedrux I'm confused! What does the XY value have to do with the nozzle going straight down in to the bed on Z axis?
It may not have anything to do with your current issue but it may cause further issues down the line. Such a large offset could cause your printer to think it is printing half a meter off your build surface when it probes at the edge. Generally the probe is as close to the nozzle as possible. I doubt it is half a meter, but I don't know your printer.
