"Attempting to extrude with no tool selected", and how to set up fans

"Attempting to extrude with no tool selected", and how to set up fans
January 01, 2018 10:10AM
Hey, my RADDS-RRF Kossel is almost completely set up, but there is just two things left that I need to take care of; Extruders and Fans. I was saving the extruder tuning for last, but perhaps that wasn't a good idea, considering that I just CAN'T get it to play ball!

I try extruding, retracting, anything, with the extruder stepper motor, and I keep getting the same "Attempting to extrude with no tool selected" error. I thought it was just my tool settings, but I've tried all sorts of things, and can't figure it out on my own.

I also don't know if the tool numbering nomenclature is the same between Duet and RADDS. Do they both start with T1, or T0?

Here's the important bit of config.g:
; Drives
M569 P0 S1 ; Drive 0 goes forwards
M569 P1 S1 ; Drive 1 goes forwards
M569 P2 S1 ; Drive 2 goes forwards
M569 P3 S1 ; Drive 3 goes forwards
M92 X80 Y80 Z80 E80 ; Set steps per mm
M566 X1200 Y1200 Z1200 E1200 ; Set maximum instantaneous speed changes (mm/min)
M203 X18000 Y18000 Z18000 E1200 ; Set maximum speeds (mm/min)
M201 X1500 Y1500 Z1500 E1000 ; Set accelerations (mm/s^2)
;M906 X800 Y800 Z800 E800 I60 ; Set motor currents (mA) and motor idle factor in per cent, It probably isn't supported in RADDS.
M84 S30 ; Set idle timeout

; Heaters
M305 P0 T100000 B4138 C0 R4700 ; Set thermistor + ADC parameters for heater 0
M143 H0 S100 ; Set temperature limit for heater 0 to 100C
M305 P1 T100000 B4138 C0 R4700 ; Set thermistor + ADC parameters for heater 1
M143 H1 S300 ; Set temperature limit for heater 1 to 300C
M570 H1 P30 T10 S120 ; Give more time to heat up
M302 P1 ; Allows for Cold Extrusion

; Tools
M563 P0 D0 H1 ; Define tool 0
G10 P0 X0 Y0 Z0 ; Set tool 0 axis offsets
G10 P0 R0 S190 ; Set initial tool 0 active and standby temperatures to 0C
;M563 S1 ; Allows for tool nomenclature compatibility between Slic3r and RepRap (Tools 0&1 vs Tools 1&2)


On top of that, I also don't know where my fans go. I've been reading a lot of stuff, and some people are saying there's only one operational fan pinset (FAN0), and others telling me that I need to put them in another area. Can someone clear the air on that for me? I have a parts fan, nozzle fan, and a fan for cooling the board. Only the latter should be on at all times, and I can just use +12V for that, but what about the other two?

I can't help you with fans on RADDS, but "Attempting to extrude with no tool selected" means just that. Send T0 before you try to extrude. Users of single-extruder machines often put a T0 command at the end of config.g.

Thank you, that worked just fine!

As for the fans, if I can't get them working, I'll probably just make my own fan system, as I'm taking power from an ATX PSU, and have some open molex connections.

From the RADDS Pins.h file:

const size_t NUM_FANS = 2;
const Pin COOLING_FAN_PINS[NUM_FANS] = { 9, 8 }; // Fan 0, Fan 1

So it's using Arduino Due digital pins 9 and 8.

Not sure if/where that would be on the shield, but that will point me in the right direction!

The hotend fan is next to the heated bed terminal. Next to the hotend fan is the part cooling fan.
Maybe you should ask RADDS related questions in the "RADDS works now with RRF"-thread. You'll reach a bigger audience there and we don't pollute the Duet subforum.

And those terminals can be speed controlled?

Yes. My hotend fan has a thermal control and the part cooler is controlled by the slicer settings.
