I am new to the Duet but have had the BLTouch v3 working for the last 3 weeks or so. There was no extra steps to do . Just plug directly to the pins described.

RE: Solved-First time setup. Cant get steppers working properly
It actually was wired correctly. What I found is that when I was switching X and Y one of the pins for Y had pulled loose. Once I reconnected that I was able to get them operating correctly.
This is my first post here. How do I edit the title to show it is solved?
RE: My BL Touch not self testing or deploying
If you go here https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_a_Z_probe
and go down to the BLTouch section, that wiring will work with V3 of the BLTouch.
I have it working great with independent Z motors and mesh grid

RE: Editing files in /sys/subdirectory???
Well I spoke too soon. I dl from here
which is the "next" tree of DWC.
It downloads a file DuetWebControl-next.zip
But when I install this from within DWC 1.22.6 I see it unzipping a lot of files and then a blank screen.
I have to copy my backup /www directory onto the card to get back up.
Do I have the wrong file?
RE: Laser Gcode S Sticky after G0 question
I just got my laser working on my printer. If you are ok with buying a program PicEngrave will produce the correct gcode.
It will let you decide if you want the Sxx on the same line or on seperate line. It will also let you dictate what M code will control the laser (M106 or M3 etc.)
Editing files in /sys/subdirectory???
Since I am using my machine for both printing and laser engraving, I am making use of the M505 command to use alternate configuration files. However it seems like I cannot edit the files in the directory under the sys directory. I have to put the card in my computer to edit them. Is there something I am missing or is that a request that should go in for an enhancement?
RE: Using a Laser with the Duet 2 WiFi
Well for some reason I cannot get this laser to work properly. The laser in question is from J Tech and the driver is here: https://jtechphotonics.com/?page_id=126
It was working properly with my previous printer when I was using a Ramps board.
I have tried using Fan2 with this in the config.g
; Laser w Fan
M106 P2 H-1 ; Set Fan2 for laser PWM control, disable thermostat control
M452 P22 R255 F200 ; switch to laser mode using the FAN-2 output pins to control the laser
The laser will come on but it will not shut off or change intensity. I am using
M106 Sxxx and
So I then tried it with using the pin for Heater 4 and for power the 5v pin for the Panel Duet.
; Laser Heater
; M307 H4 A-1 C-1 D-1 ; Disable heater4 on PWM channel for Laser
; M452 P4 R255 F200 ; switch to laser mode using the heater 4 output pins (pin 13) to control the laser
Same thing. Laser turns on but cant control after that. Wont shut off or change intensity with M3 Sxxx or M5
Can anyone see what I am missing?
Using a Laser with the Duet 2 WiFi
I have my printer working pretty well now. I am now getting my laser set up on it and have a few questions for those that use it for both printing and Laser.
Do you use two different config.g files to switch between the functions?
Does it matter if I use Fan2 or a heater pin on the expansion pins?
Can I add the Laser as a new tool even though no heater or thermistor is attached to it?
Any pointer you want to send my way?
