LCD display with duet wifi

Hi,

Wish to upgrade from ramps to the duet wifi, but wondering if the duet supports other LCDs besides the panelDue? Hoping to use a third party screen with the board if possible, e.g. the raspberry pi lcd touchscreen.
Thanks.

AFAIK the standard answer is :Yes, RRF is an open source firmware and you can program your own LCD anytime sad smiley
Fact is, there is no other LCD implemented ATM.

You can use the PanelDue display controller with compatible 4.3, 5 and 7 inch touch screens. Currently there is no support for other LCDs.

Disclosure: I have a financial interest in sales of the Panel Due, Mini IR height sensor, and Duet WiFi/Duet Ethernet [www.duet3d.com].

My thought, though I have yet to try this, is to re-use an old cellphone or tablet as the display for my printer. No need to wire directly to the Duet board as I can just connect via the web interface. You also might be able to use a RPi Zero with the linked touch screen display, allowing you to use it for a web interface for just a few dollars more.
