Thank you once again for your patience and all the help. 3d printing is new to me. And my computer skills imprive daily. Cura now loads a file

12v to w24v heating
VOLTAGE CHANGE ON HEATED BED
I have. A cr10-s5 Some timen ago i asked if one could change the voltage on a stock cr10s5. If you remove the build platform you will see 4 solder connections indicating that there might be two coils
Leading one to think that the change is possable from 12v to 24v. Im sad to report ( at least on my machien ) it is not an option ..the pads are paired and can not be wired in seires. For those that would like to heat a little faster looking at a complete reolacment of your heating pad is the most likely going to be the only option. Sorry guys but no cheep fix here. Thanks for your input. its not often we get this level of support keep up the good work and thanks duet for a great product
So i read the post you sent i understand the theory behind, but being a dyslectic, math would not be my strong suit.. 😬😫😬🙄... i have esteps of 415 in my m92 and a total of 97 mm total extrution out of a 100mm,,,, I'm comming up three mm short
Would someone be kind enough to run the equation for me. Im afraid i have no clue.
I'm not be able to understand the fractional equation...
Thanks guys,,, in advance.
A work around would be fine too ..i though about just canging the value intill I'm supper close but that wouldn't nessicary be correct either..
....just closer 😁
Im a firm believer in finding your own solutions but with this kind of thing this forum has great value for myself and others like me.
RE: Best z sensor fornglas bed
So thanks for all the input
I managed to putball the pieces together and have the printer running consistent 1st layers.
Everyone who chimed in contributed to a bit of the picture in the true spirit of this site.
Once again i have had success at one more strugle to understand... thanks again for all the help
The last piece i was missing was the actual hieght the capasitive sensor gives the best readings.
2MM was what i found out.
Thanks all...... Ed........
RE: Duet wifi and slicer progams
I understand"finally." Thanks guys
If my memory serves me right ..when i first bought it as a cr10-5s curra would communicate and move The printer thru the curra software, but with the usb
so here is where i lost it
When the dwc was installed. That was no longer possable.
So i move my printer and write to the sd csrd thru the dwc. never the slicer.. just forget that that was with the original control card
And if i wish (but only) transfer a finished gcode file
Via curra (using the addon) ... to the dwc onto the sd card
Then launch the print ....
Ultimatly i loose the printer controls via usb for curra... No biggie! just use duet wifi interface instead
Last... to understand the curra addon,,it only writes your choosen gcode file to the sd card in the duet via the wifi funtion and that is all it is capable of
Would that be correct? 😳😁
RE: Duet wifi and slicer progams
My second question would be for dc42
As far as 3rd party slicer programs, are there any plans to incorperate a wifi link that we can use with
Oter slicer Programs in the future such as mattercontrol or other independant proprietary Slicers. I believe as of now the only
Slicer that will work via wifi is curra with the proper add on.
Silacone sock for mosquito
16055140473776388353493397964383.jpg Could not find a sili! sock for my mosquito hotend so i down loaded a mold i thought it turned.out realy good for.high temp silicone 😁 got the mold off of thingiverse in case you need one too
1..My question is if i add the sock now i should retune my p.i.d.???? And
2...when i give the gcode comand does it override the previous entry automaticaly...

RE: Installing macros
So that a yes?? extract them got that then paste in macros folder "each fuction seperately???" 🤔
. Sorry first time 🤪
I assume theres like 4 files one for each fuction? i paste them individually
Or is it an unzip and drag the whole folder.
Im running windows could someone paste the proper
Link for your tunning file
RE: Convert Duet Ethernet to WIFI
My thought are why not just buy a fiwi 2 board. Im big on suporting tihis site by buying original products.. I've been running my wifi board for over two years constantly without a hickup.. It's neet to update stuff but for dependability duet makes a great poduct. Take advantage of all the hard work thiese guys did to make the wifi -2. I do a lot with the esp8266 and it can get tricky quick ... if its just to learn things. It might be fun but for a working printer grab the real McCoy,, Just my thoughts. 😁 if you like the arduino stuff check out the wemos mini. Cool stuff dude!!👍😀
RE: Installing macros
Ok so do copy and paste the ziped file in it's entirety. Or just is that wrong, do i need to unzip and and move the file into the macro one function at a time. Sorry just have no idea where to start some one suggested to pull the sd card then coppy the file to the macros folder that way . Still ...same question
Pluss do i need to prepair folders and a sub directory or does the dwc orginize the file somehow.
RE: Stepper motors , does the polarity matter ?
When you test your duel z motors. If it runs the wrong way chainge direction in the G code ,, i assume you have two motors and yes its possable to have one running the opposite of the other z motor (incorect wiring) in that case you must rewire so both turn the same direction it does matter that both motors on your z run the same direction. So "when" they do and if they turn the the wrong direction chainge it in your your gcode. go to system tab on the dwc user interface open your config .g file.
Under drives youl see (M-569. P0 S0.) By changing
S0 to S1 will chaing the direction of all your stepper. As far as XYZ and X is concerned.. its the same for all. Also for double Z motors. Both z motors should turn same directoin if they dont cainge one motors wiring then correct rotation on your config .g file hopefully this helps 🙂
How do i install macros. I know its on the system tab.
i created a new directory caled macros. It showed up on the system lists of files...i assume this is right thing to Do. I downloaded file caled tuning but it is ziped
Do i load the entire zip file or unzip it first then install each macro????
I have no idea
Also is it possable i have the wrong file that is for a mack.. got the file off of one of the threads and they were talking later about os mac thought id better ask
