That works like a charm Thank you!
1 more question: Can I use a heated print bed without a temperature sensor? If yes, how can I set it manually? I can't do it through the RRF Config Tool.

Unable to turn on heater
Hi, need some help here. I'm using my old delta printer and changing out the board to Duet. I have updated to all the latest firmware.
Motion of the axes is fine already, and now I'm testing the heaters.
In the RRF Config Tool:
Trying to set it up now and I'm facing this issue:
So basically, I can't manually turn on heater for Tool 0.
Also, on the DWC, Heater shows as n/a
I did try Output: e0heat (inverted) and the heater works. It heats up immediately, and the Temperature Chart reflects the temperature increasing. But heater is still "n/a".
Am I missing something here?
Not sure if this is needed but I've included config.g here:

Sorry if i was being confusing.
It was 2 separate issues.
I have set up for 1 Z-probe and initially it was working fine (i.e. Z-probe was set as P1 in config.g).
I did change other stuff in the configurator tool but I didn't change anything about the Z-Probe but starting from some point, the Z-probe was generated as P2 instead of P1.
The code in config.g was:
M558 P2 H5 F120 T6000 ; Set Z probe type to modulated and the dive height + speeds
G31 P500 X0 Y0 Z2.5 ; Set Z probe trigger value, offset and trigger height
M557 X0:1050 Y-1040:0 S20 ; Define mesh grid
Second issue: I have defined my Z-axis homing with a limit switch to the "High End" but consistently my homez.g was as follow:
; called to home the Z axis
; generated by RepRapFirmware Configuration Tool v2 on Fri Feb 22 2019 13:32:37 GMT+0800 (Singapore Standard Time)
G91 ; relative positioning
G1 Z5 F6000 S2 ; lift Z relative to current position
G1 S1 Z1062.35 F1800 ; move Z up until the endstop is triggered
G92 Z1 ; set Z position to axis minimum (you may want to adjust this)
; Uncomment the following lines to lift Z after probing
;G91 ; relative positioning
;G1 S2 Z5 F100 ; lift Z relative to current position
;G90 ; absolute positioning
Initially I was really fresh to this whole 3D printing, Duet, Reprap and all these G-codes. But now I'm starting to understand better and so I know where to check for problems, and I can make the adjustments, so no big issue.
Hope this clarifies my confusing post earlier.! ^^
uhh, it's ok! I figured. in Config.g it should have been M558 P1 but the configurator generated it as M558 P2
Been having quite a bit of issues with the codes generated by the configurator actually. For example, homing my Z axis to the high end, it moves the Z towards the high end but sets the Z position to minimum after homing.
RE: External Heater Question
After checking back with my dad, he wants to do it such that we will connect the bed to an endstop. We will then manually switch on the heaters and when the temperature has been achieved, we will trigger with an "on/off" to the endstop. Is there a specific Mcode/Gcode that I can use in my gcode to detect this signal on the endstop and inform the duet to start print job?
RE: M588 doesn't work
@phaedrux thank you for the reply! I'm on Windows 10. I will try out M588 in config file and see how it goes
Im on 2.01 for now.. Found it a bit of a chore to upgrade firmware so I didn't do so. I shall get to the upgrading after I fix the network problem
M588 doesn't work
Hi I've previously had a network set on my duetwifi and now that I have moved the card onto the system, it is very weak on this network and so I tried to connect it on another network.
I have done M588 S"*" through YAT and Pronterface (I have no idea how all these stuff works so I'm just trying all possibilities.) and set up the new network.
Now I can connect to the new network but the old network is still lurking around. When I upload config file and restart the board, sometimes it connects to the old network, sometimes it connects to the new network. At times I can get into the Web control, and get connection to the board, at times the Web control totally doesn't load. At times the Web control loads, but status is "Disconnected"
Another qn, can I change the config file directly through the duet Web control? I am trying to change the max speed on my Y axis and I tried editing the config file. Then it had an error message and a config backup file was generated. subsequently it seemed to become corrupted and I couldn't connect anymore.
Please help this very very lost sheep here.
RE: External Heater Question
Sorry if this is a really silly question, if I follow to use SSR, will the duet automatically know when my bed has reached the required temperature?
If no, how do I notify the duet?
I will be using K type thermocouple.
I'm not good at all technically, and my question might sound really odd. But thank you all for being patient and responsive!
External Heater Question
I would like to use external heaters to heat up the print bed, then when the required temperature is reached, a signal will be sent to Duet Wifi to start print job.
Where should I send this "signal" to?
How should I modify the config or any other files to accommodate for that?
RE: HELP! Think i screwed up my Duet :(
I think it is the big squarish IC (that's the CPU right?) anyway, I do think I have accidentally short circuit the board probably that explains why. maybe a nice insulated case will be a good add on
thanks for replying me though! always appreciate it!
HELP! Think i screwed up my Duet :(
Upgraded the firmware on my new card (v1.04) and set up the WiFi (completed)
Then I tried to wire it up with a 24V + a stepper motor to try out the motion. But I couldn't get connected to the WiFi.
So I unplugged everything, only plugged in a 5V. and then I saw a red light under the work Z Stop (See photo)
My WiFi doesn't light up anymore.
I also tried to connect to YAT and it doesn't work anymore!!!
I plugged in to an older board to compare, attached in photo too.
Save me Please tell me I didn't destroy the board.
On my ok board:
On my not ok board.
I don't really dare to try anything on my other board already. in case I screw up one more time.
COMPLETELY NEW to 3D Printing/Electronics/Motion
Hi! I'm a total newbie to 3D Printing and anything technical.
So I'm trying to get started with the DuetWifi while waiting for my dad to get the mechanical parts up and I've been reading a bit through all the documentation and looking at youtube videos.
I've got the DuetWifi powered up, connected to the Internet, updated to the latest firmware, Connected to the PanelDue 7i, but that's like the furthest I can go at this moment.
Without connecting the motors, is it possible for me to send moves to the DuetWifi and see some feedback on the Duet Web Control or the PanelDue 7i itself?
Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction!!
RE: Error when opening source files on KiCAD
I just managed to get it to work.
I downloaded the master zip file, unzipped everything and went specifically into the expansion breakout board folder to open the project and everything worked like a charm!
And of course, it only worked perfectly on KiCad v4.0.7, as it seems they have changed the schematic library portion in the latest stable release, v5.0.1, which causes missing links for components in the schematic.
Thanks again for the quick replies and assistance!!!
By the way, may I know what is the difference between v1.0 and v1.1 of the expansion breakout board?
RE: Error when opening source files on KiCAD
@T3P3Tony Thanks for replying so soon!
I just downloaded KiCad4.0.7 on another computer (just in case the latest version doesn't clean up properly and causes issue), and tried. I am still getting a similar error. only the line number mentioned is different.
when I tried to open the .sch file:
