Thank you. Yeah I was hoping for some real world experience or examples. As I understand the firmware has a large impact on the overall performance of engraving speeds given that GRBL-LPC is quite a bit faster than standard smoothie running on the same hardware. I am unsure how reprap stacks up and if the faster hardware of the duet 3D would be utilized. I believe my current bottleneck is in the way the hardware and firmware handle motion planning as I am trying to lay down as many dots as fast as possible on a helical path on cylindrical surface.

RE: Duet boards and laser engraving speeds.
Duet boards and laser engraving speeds.
Hi all, from my searching I see that some have successfully setup laser engraving with Duets, though my impression is that it is still very much a pioneering effort at this point sorting out the wiring and software work flow.
I have custom setup. That is currently using grbl-lpc and I seem to be limited by the processing power either from the gcode/sec or the motion planner. It is a machine that is setup to etch like a lathe so we can achieve very high speeds, but the controller seems to be the bottle neck.
I am wondering if anyone has done a comparison between duet and grbl-lpc if there is any potential speed improvements to be had.
I assume that regarding processing power there would be difference between maestro, duet2 and duet3 in this application.
Thanks for any input.
RE: Mesh compensation not working?
Thanks for the article but it's a little bit over my head. I am doing 9 factor calibration (g32) with corrector I determined manually 3 readings at each point. Basically noting differences between the sensor activated Z and actual bed level offset at each location.
RE: Mesh compensation not working?
It's interesting, I actually went through the motions and determined a height correction for each of my 9 G32 probe points. This allowed me to get a successful print along the perimeter which I have not been able to do for some time. It's not absolutely perfect but it's good enough for what I do and substantially improved.
However I ran Mesh bed compensation after this print and now it's looking pretty bad. If I have this height map loaded then my print fails again.
I have run G29 3 times with similar resulting height maps. Prior to adding correction to my G32 my height map looked much better. What is the relationship here. Should I just not do a mesh bed compensation anymore?
Mesh compensation not working?
Hoping for some tips on diagnosing this issue. I have had my setup for maybe 2 years now and I did not have an issue with putting down a consistent first layer large prints. Lately (6 months) I have been noticing that the top corner of my first layer is too close to the bed so much so that the filament cannot come out. This has not yet been enough to cause failed prints, but the problem seems to be getting worse.
I had originally thought it was a problem with my BL-touch (Genuine) and have since replaced it with a another but the issue remains.
My mesh looks okay, at least no better or worse than when I started. I run the Delta calibration before every print.
I run the Delta calibration before every print.
Please help. This is for a Duet Maestro 2.05 on a Tevo Little Monster.
RE: Delta Calibration G32 inconsistent between runs
Ahah, so does that zero closeness get thrown out on power down?
Is there a command that can be added to bed.g to probe a single center point and set zero close and then probe the remaining pints for tilt ?
Delta Calibration G32 inconsistent between runs
Is it normal to get different values from subsequent runs of G32? for example when I run at first start its not unusual for me to get a range between 3.00 and 0.03 before and after. But running it immediately again my numbers are closer together like 0.04 and 0.03.
I thought that every time this is run the previous data is thrown out, thus it's not calibrated when calibrating. Why would I get vastly different numbers. when run back to back?
I run this before every print and I am chasing down the occasional issue where I get a tilted first layer. Does not happen all the time, but sometimes its way off. My mesh compensation map is usually pretty consistent.
RE: Duet Web control with no router
Thanks all. So can my laptop be connected to the wifi in the building, and simultaneously be able to connect to my Maestro using the ethernet? I likely would not be able to use a static ip on the wifi and these would present two different networks?
This is really out of my area.
Duet Web control with no router
I plan on moving my printers with a Duet Maestro and Duet 2 Wifi to an office where I we may not have access to the router. Are we able to to connect to Duet Web control via the usb or through direct connection to the ethernet for the maestro?
