Plugin for Duet 3 RRF with RPI

Hi All,

from the Duet/Reprap forum I know that many people are interested…. Are there any plans to develop a plugin for the Duet board/Duet web control? Most Duet 3 users are running it via an attached Raspberry so perhaps that would makes it easier.

Thanks, Martin

As an alternative it would be nice if it would be possible to be able to copy files to the inserted SD card via USB. Is that possible? I’m using a self designed wall mount and it is quite hard to remove/insert the SD card without pulling Palette out of the mount.

Hey @martinnyhc, thanks for reaching out. While we don’t have future plans to develop a plugin for the Duet board, this is something I can pass on as a feature request to the appropriate team. I can also pass on the request to copy files via USB, as this is currently not possible. Please let us know if you have any other suggestions or feedback, it’s always helpful for our team. Thanks again!

Thanks. Support for the Duet3 would be awesome!

Regarding the copy to USB: I read something about an API for Palette. Is it already implemented and would it be possible to copy a file via API call?

by

Hm, the Palette itself does not have any network connection, so any API call would have to go through the Hub. If you added the Hub to your setup (you would need OctoPrint compatibility and a USB-B port), you could send your prints remotely rather than having to transfer files manually via an SD card or a USB. You can also create your own DIY Hub (mm3d.co/canvashub-plugin).

Is there a documentation for the serial communiction?

by

Sorry Martin, I'm not sure what you mean - what kind of documentation are you looking for?

by

@alina The Octoprint plugin is communicating with Palette via USB serial connection. I would like to know if this (the available commands and the Palette output) is documented? If so I would like to look into a plugin for Duet3D.

I spent the last few days investigating what options I have to drive Palette 2S Pro with my Reprap based Duet3D board. To make a long story short: there is no long term solution to drive it via connected mode or at least no way which is satisfactory. I’m now thinking about the best way for me in the future. Keep thr Palette or building a new primnter with tool changer. So I’m wondering what the chances are that we get a plugin for Duet3D/RepRap as for Octoprint. Any ideas?

As already wrote in my initital message there are many Duet3D/RepRap users who are highly interested in using Palette in connected mode. If there are any plans on your side I’m sure that there can be a collaboration.

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

Duet3d has now implemented a third party plugin architecture. May I ask again for an offical feature request for a plugin? If you guys are interested I’m quite sure that we can collaborate. It would be very appreciated if you guys would let me know what youÄre thinking about that.

Thanks, Martin
