I'm new to the forum and the Duet systems. I've taken my Ender 5 Pro and have turned it into a kind of working project. Moving to a Duet 3 was the first stage.
After some help from several people on this forum I now have a functional printer. It looks like a complete mess, but that will be sorted out in time.
After this step my next goals were to add some form of bed leveling and a second z stepper (which you can see in a prototype stage at the front in the image). I've wired them up already and done some testing with the BLTouch. The additional z stepper is just rubber banded to the frame until I print out some connector parts. The green connector plate is just hanging in space so I could make sure it lined up with the bed leveling screws. I have to say it's pretty cool to see it moving completely in sync with the main bed.
I've also ordered a new extruder hot-end that should be here in a couple weeks and then there are other bigger changes down the line like increasing the dimensions, moving to linear rails, creating an enclosure, running a mains powered heated bed and an additional z stepper for auto bed leveling. I'm sure there will be more that I haven't thought of yet.
So far, I found the Duet 3 extremely easy to work with. The whole setup with RepRap firmware is very easy to configure and making changes without having to recompile is a fantastic thing!
I appreciate all the help everyone has given me on the forum so far and I look forward to learning more and hopefully contributing at some point.
