    Hi,

    I gave just built a 1M x 1M screw Workbee.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do with the Fusion-v 1.0.1.zip file?

    WorkBee Firmware Releases

    I have just started using Fusion 360 and want to design and use it for CAM with my new Duet controlled Workbee.

    Thanks.

    Don

    PS - have a look at my build report (workbee with Duet controller) for a few important points about the Duet controller. Especially, Oozenest set "allow moves without homing" (first screen in settings on Duet Web Control) by default. This is a disaster waiting to happen as it effectively turns off your soft limits and allows you to drive the machine into its own frame. You really should turn this setting off.
    Alex.

    Alex,

    Fixed my Fusion 360 post process issue...many thanks.

    Am I right in assuming it is a line in config g that you are referring to regarding the "allow moves without homing"? I could not see anything in there that looked like this.

    No, it's a setting in Duet web control - first screen in settings I think. You may have to save changes after unticking it.

    Alex,

    I have just had a look through the Duet web control settings.

    I found this setting in the config g folder... M564 HO

    This is what the Duet wiki says...

    M564: Limit axes Parameters Hnnn H1 = forbid movement of axes that have not been homed, H0 = allow movement of axes that have not been homed (firmware 1.21 and later)Snnn S1 = limit movement within axis boundaries, S0 = allow movement outside boundaries Example M564 S0 H0 Allow moves outside the print volume and before homing, or not. If the S parameter is 0, then you can send G codes to drive the RepRap outside its normal working volume, and it will attempt to do so. Likewise if the H parameter is zero you can move the head or bed along axes that have not been homed. The default behaviour is S1 H1. On some types of printer (e.g. Delta and SCARA), movement before homing may be prohibited regardless of the H parameter.

    So, I think I need to add S1 to make...

    H564 H0 S1

    Or to be very safe...

    H564 H1 S1

    I don't know - I didn't mess with any code - just unticked the box in Duet web control which fixed the problem.

    Hi @hobdayd, I just checked my config.g - the M564 line says H0, but I can't jog my machine without homing first and my soft limits work - I can't move any axis outside the defined machine parameters. I'll download my config.g tomorrow and post it here.
    Alex. :confused:

    Alex,

    I looked but could not see a box to un-tick in Duet web control so opted for the config g option instead. Can you post a pic of the page with the box to un-tick?

    I am a happy chappy...just cut my first sample part using Fusion 360 CAD & CAM.

    Interesting, I did draw this problem to the attention of Oozenest - I wonder if they have changed the firmware? Though if your config.g still allowed you to move axes without homing and didn't stop you moving outside the machines limits the problem still existed!

    Very nice. Interesting optical illusion - zoomed in on your "chalet" picture and sometimes the text etc looked recessed and sometimes it gave the illusion of being proud. What bit/speed/feed did you use for that?
    Alex. :thumbsup:

    Top one was a 6mm ball ended mill and bottom one was a 6mm end mill. I used 250mm/min & 300mm/min on these two. I tried faster but produced a lot of smoke...however, this is treated timber - not great quality...just what I had lying around.

    And probably toxic.. wear a dust mask at least, better get a dust shoe and a quality filter on the vacuum.
