Does any of the earlier 1.19 beta series work for you? It sounds as though a recent change may have broken the RADDS build.

I just tried beta6, it does not work.

Thanks for trying that. I'll revert a change that I made to the RADDS configuration at the suggestion of a user, so we can see if that fixes the problem.

Hi Micktol (and anyone else who wants to help),

Can you try some earlier versions? It would be really helpful to know exactly which set of changes broke the RADDS build. If you go to [github.com] you can see that releases beta2 and beta3 are also available. To download one of them, click on the <> button next to it, then follow the link to the correct binary and download as usual.

David

David,

I tried beta 2 + 3 both of them run, as I said 6 does not, I can test any version you require. Thank you for your work on the radds.

Thanks, I'll look at what changed between beta3 and beta6. If there are a lot of changes then I can build RADDS versions of betas 4 and 5 for you to test.

I believe I found the problem. Please try beta 10 when I release it later today.

I have tried 1.19 beta 10, on my radds and it connects via usb and panel due. Thanks you.

Thanks for the feedback!

I got my inductive probe hooked up for bed leveling a while back, been working great.
I'm looking to now hook up a simple switch-based out-of-filament sensor. All the reading I've done says I need to hook that switch up to either The E0 or E1 endstop: The E0 endstop is what my inductive probe is hooked to (D39 / E0_AXIS), but I've been unable to find the pin for the E1_AXIS / endstop.

Is this even a thing on the RADDS board?
I'm thinking I may finally upgrade to a DuetEthernet next year, but in the meantime, I'd like to get this switch working if I can. Are any other pins acceptable? Since the RADDS board has min & max endstop headers (and I only use the min), I though maybe I could re-purpose the maxZ, but RRF isn't detecting it or, I'm just doing it wrong.

The Pins_RADDS.h file in the source code indicates that there are only 4 active endstop inputs in the RADDS build. If you can tell me the pin numbers of all 6 endstop inputs, I can add the missing ones if those pins are not already used for something else e.g. the Z probe.

If you connect your inductive probe to the Z probe input instead, you could free up the E0 input.

If you want to rewrite the pin mapping section of the code and compile it yourself, you can use many other pins.
Maybe contact the guys who built a CoreXYU with RRF, they heavily hacked the RADDS code...

(going to presume you know this already, but for due diligence) :
From this page
[doku.radds.org]
is this pic:
[doku.radds.org]
But it has no pin numbers for the endstops, only which endstops they're for.

Poking around more, found this guy:
[www.dr-henschke.de]
Which lists these Due pins for the endstops, if that helps:
P28 X-Min
P30 Y-Min
P32 Z-Min
P34 X-Max
P36 Y-Max
P38 Z-Max

I thought that's what I had done: Are you saying there's a different pin on RADDS other than D39 / E0_AXIS for the z-probe?

FYI: I connected the z-probe to "servoPWM3". Don't know if that's the D39 pin?

Yep, it is.

Are you aware of the fact, that the 5V line of the servoPWM connectors is not alive? You'd have to feed 5V to the servo5V_in pin if needed.

o_lampe, not sure who that comment is directed too? I already have my z-probe hooked up via that pin top, but it is good info for others. I use the machine ground for it.

This is mainly aimed at dc42, but I think others might be interested in this too. I am planning on getting the TMC2130 stepper drivers and would like to setup stall detection and sensorless homing on my RADDS hardware. I know that the Duet hardware now supports these features in RRF 1.20 beta 5 and later. I also know they use the TMC2660 which is slightly different. I am wondering how hard it would be to set this up with the RADDS and RRF. I realize that some of the pins on the stepper drivers will need to be connected to the SPI bus as well as a few other place. I was thinking of making a small addon board to make this easier. I have not researched it too much but I think the extension board slot of the RADDS has most if not all the necessary pin connections. What are your thoughts on this?
Re: RADDS work now stable with RepRap Firmware

It sounds possible to me if you have a spare USART on the Due to use for the SPI interface to the TMC2130 drivers. But also quite a lot of firmware work to do, enabling the smart drivers support in the RADDS build and then adapting it for TMC2130 drivers. You would also need to change the driver polling code to use a spare DMA channel instead of the PDC, or else provide a way for the Due to read the stall outputs directly.

So Thomas Sanladerer made a tutorial on setting this up with RAMPS and Marlin on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPvTB3irCxQ). In it he has you wire the DIAG1 pin of the TMC2130 driver boards to the endstop pins of the RAMPS board. I am guessing that Marlin is setting this pin so that when the motor stalls this pin goes active which triggers the end stop.

As for wiring the RADDS extension board header does not have any SPI pins which is sad, but the RADDS has an external SD card header that does. It could be used to get the SPI bus. The extension board does have plenty of GPIO pins which can be used for slave select though.

I have made a RADDS build of RepRapFirmware 1.20RC2 available via [github.com]. As with all RADDS builds, I have not tested it. I plan to release 1.20 next week, so there are only a few days left to try it and report any bugs.

There are numerous new features in 1.20 series firmware. See [github.com] for the changes since the last stable release, which was version 1.19.2.

Version 1.20 is the last release I intend to do for SAM3X processors, although there may be 1.20.x releases if bugs need to be fixed. RepRapFirmware will be migrated to use a Real Time Operating System in the near future, and sadly the SAM3X processors have insufficient RAM to support RTOS.
