Thanks David. I'm not aware of any ending scripts, and I couldn't find any in the post processing menu of my slicer. I use Cura.
Sounds like unless anyone is aware of this possibility in Cura, I should be barking up a tree in a Cura forum?
I have a had a recurring problem that I have not been able to trace. Sometimes, the job park the nozzle at the final printing position and let the nozzle cool before it goes to home, which means the nozzle gets stuck to the build and then the motors fight to break it loose from the job. Problematic for several reasons, right? It's possible that this is a slicer issue rather than a Duet issue because I do not always notice it, and because I sometimes slice at home (Mac) and sometimes on my work machine (Windows) both using Cura, but they may have slightly different settings.
Thank you for any help!
@dc42 Thank you! Please forgive my ignorance, but would i be putting these codes in the bed.g file, or where? Start low with the stall threshold, motor currents, and speed?
Also, are the same parameters tunable if using stall detection as the z-endstop? Is there any reason to not do that if I only have a single nozzle? Is there any long-term damage to the z-motor to be expected? I currently have a simple switch at the low end of the range for Z-range for an endstop, but it seems kind of pointless there and would better serve at the high end if I can use the stall detection as a low range endstop. Sound liek a wise plan?
Thanks again for your help!
I have wired a Wanhao D6 with a Duet 2 Wifi and I am new to wiring printers. My heater power and 2-wire PT100 hot-end sensor are wired using a shielded 4-wire cable. Going through Step 3.9 of the setup guide (Configuration: Check Heater Functionality), as soon as I enable heat to the hot-end, the temp reading spikes and then faults and cuts power.
I was following a wiring write-up from someone who went through the same upgrade, and they noticed that the PT100 signal would go off the scale whenever the extruder stepper moved. They then re-wired the PT100 with it's own dedicated shielded wire. I didn't expect this would be an issue for a heater vs a stepper, but do you think this is an interference issue that can only be solved by dedicated shielded wiring for the PT100?
Thanks for any help!
I want to use stall detection on my z-axis as a probe, but I am not sure how to set it up using the RepRap Configurator. Can that even be done, or does it need to be done manually in G-code? I have read enough to know that if I don't have appropriate motor current and steps/mm defined while doing this, I can cause some damage, so I'm just trying to avoid that. Anybody have a step-by-step procedure on setting that up?
Until I can get that figured out, how do I set up manual bed levelling? If i just set the probe type to No Probe, will the web interface have a walk through to develop a mesh?
Any guidance would be helpful, thank you!
and re-jig the connections to avoid the need for custom cables.
My Wanhao D6 has screen/encoder and sd-card cables that plug right into the similarly named ports on the board. (I'm almost stupid enough to just plug them in and turn it on to see what happens.) I'd love for them to work and not just be lifeless. If there were enough folks interested in this feature, would you all make a way to bring it to life?
I think my question is similar to the one posted here, but I just have to make sure so that I don't my nice new board. I am a certifiable noob at wiring.
My printer's stepper wiring is not color coded. I have used a multimeter to confirm which pairs constitute a given coil, but I am not sure which is A or which is B, which is 1 or which is 2. Would I be reading the above post accurately to say that it doesn't matter as long as you get the pairs right? They might turn the wrong direction but you can just reverse it in the firmware and be done?
Thanks for any help!
