I will like to share an app I have been using for sometime now with my workbee CNC. It's available on the Google play store Duet Jogger
Hi, I have successfully migrated to RRF3.2.2 and everything works at it should. I really like added features especially the Gamepad jogger plugin. However, the interface still has a lot of 3D printer features remaining e.g. extruders and temperature which are not needed with CNCs. Is it possible to completely remove these in order to get a cleaner look? I think a hybrid of Ooznest's Workbee Control with the added features of DWC-CNC will be the best of both worlds. An XYZ probe macro and power-loss resume button will also be greatly welcome.
Thanks for your efforts.
The current implementation of Go to Workzero moves the spindle through the shortest possible path to the zero position which can have bit breaking or work damaging consequences. For CNC application it is safer to home Z first, then move to X and Y zero before moving down to Z zero.
Is it possible to modify the UI so that the Go to Workzero button on the dashboard calls a workzero.g file? Similar to how the Ooznest UI does it. This way we can edit the command and ensure such damage does not happen.
@sindarius Tested today and everything works great . Thanks a lot
I had to modify my workzero.g file, I found my Z axis moving up and crashing whenever I used to Go to Zero.
The offending line was
G1 H1 Z1500 F2400
before the X and Y axis movement.
I replaced that line with
and it's working OK now.
@Sindarius @dc42 @raymondstone Has anybody been able to get power loss resume working with the latest release? Maybe a macro if not implemented in the UI itself? I'm able to run some very long jobs and I'm very nervous as utility power supply is not quite stable at the moment.
Is there a particular reason why machine/tool coordinates cannot update on the dashboard in real time when a job is running?
In Reprap firmware 2.x (specifically with Ooznest's Workbee Control) coordinates update in real time giving the operator an idea of what is happening and where the tool is moving. However, using the latest DWC-CNC, I realise that coordinates are updated only at the start of a move and updated again at the end of the move.
This may not be an issue in printing, but is in CNC operation where an operator may not be directly beside the machine and rather monitoring on a screen.
