RE: Procedure to save Homing (post successful Homing)
PanelDue and WorkBee Controler
I would like to add a 5” PanelDue to my workbee system.
Do you know if there any plans to incorporate the WorkBee Control to the PanelDue 5"
(for stand alone mode)?
Or is there a procedure to add, and to customize buttons using github PanelDue SW?
If so any timelines available yet? / Details on how this could be done?
I think it would be a great feature for anyone using the Duet 2 and Workbee Control SW.
Thanks in advance for any comments.
Procedure to save Homing (post successful Homing)
Does anybody know what the correct procedure is for saving the homing parameters on Duet2 Wifi?
I have successfully homed my machine and using the WorkBee Control. So far so good.
However, every time I re-boot the system the WorkBee Control gives me a status of 'XYZ not homed'.
I will add the customized homeall.g file to this post. Note that the homeall.g file is in the sys sub-directory and that I have also tried manual entry of M500 AND end customconfig.g with M501 on the last line.
For the record. Duet2 Wifi board 1.02, Reprap V2.03, Duet WifiServer V1.23 and WorkBee Control V1.0.1
Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
RE: Cannot turn Spindle ON using M3
Thank you for reply dc42.
I tried this but still no good I'm afraid.
I did notice that if I re-send M106 P0 I-1 H-1 A20 again, it starts the Spindle (ie turns Spindle on again).
It appears to me that FAN0 (have not tried the other servo O/P's) resets itself to a FAN once it has received
the M5 command to stop the Spindle.
Also tried expanding the M453 S"Spindle" P20 I1 R20000 T0 (In case the SW checks M3 spindle speed on M3 20000 due to safety but that made no difference).
Any other suggestions?
Cannot turn Spindle ON using M3
I am setting up a screw drive CNC and using a Duet 2 Wifi (latest FW and Workbee Controller) and BLDC (Brushless Motor Driver) to control the Spindle. The BLDC uses a 0-10V signal that controls the Spindle speed. FAN0 (on pin 20) output goes via a PWM to voltage converter to achieve the speed control.
So far I have managed to control the Spindle speed using the M106 fan PWM controller command but I wanted to utilize the CNC printer functionality namely using M3 & M5. So I can turn the Spindle OFF Ok with M5 using below command set:
M106 P0 I-1 H-1 A20 ; disable FAN0 & allocate tool 0 to pin 20
M563 P0 S"Spindle" ;
M453 S"Spindle" P20 I1 T0, Tool 0 = Spindle and invert PWM
M5 ; Successfully turn OFF the Spindle
Now, if I try sending an M3 command to turn the Spindle back ON it just does NOT work. The WorkBee Controller accepts the command with a green tick but nothing happens. I also noticed that F0 appears to revert to a FAN setting again.
Any help would be appreciated.
