I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with the pin connections on RADDS.

The 1.21RC1 build of RRF for RADDS has been available for some time in the usual EdgeRelease folder on github.

Oh no problem, just wondering if anyone here knows cause I can't seem to find stuff about it. Great I'll download it then!

eh sorry dc42, but I can't seem to find it on google, is it possibly to direct link me to it? The 1.21RC release, thank you very much.

What do i have to do to make this work with TMC2130 stepper drivers? i know how to hook it up, but seems like it might not be as easy as a few configuration changes/pin mapping... recompiling firmware isn't an issue if there needs to be changes.

RepRapFirmware has support code for TMC2660, TMC2208 and TMC2224 drivers, but currently not TMC2130. The TMC2660 has the same stallguard 2 feature and high microstepping as the 2130 but handles nearly twice as much current - which is why we chose it for the Duet.

If you want to support the TMC2130, you could adapt the TMC2660 code.

There is now a forum at duet3d.com to discuss RepRapFirmware on non-Duet electronics. See [www.duet3d.com]. Feel free to use it, or to continue the discussion here. Or both.

I have released a 1.21.1RC1 maintenance release of the RADDS build of RepRapFirmware. See [forum.duet3d.com] for details.

Hi, thank you for the development of Rerapfirmware. I currently am using Radds with Repetier with no issues. I don't require auto levelling so wondered if I will notice an improvement in print quality if I switch from Repetier.
Or is the RepRap firmware just easier to use? Does it support the LCD display?

It's not possible to generalise. Several users have reported an improvement in print quality when switching to RepRapFirmware from other firmwares - and one user recently reported a reduction in print quality. RRF may be a little less tolerant of bad GCode than other firmwares, because it controls extruder jerk, whereas many other firmwares don't.

Currently the only LCD supported by RepRapFirmware on RADDS is the PanelDue. There is ongoing work to support a 12864-style graphical LCD on the new Duet Maestro and it should be possible to back-port it to RADDS. However, I won't be doing that back-porting because I don't plan to do any more releases for the SAM3X-based boards after the forthcoming 1.21.1 maintenance release. This is because most SAM3X-based boards don't have enough RAM to support the real time operating system (RTOS) that RepRapFirmware version 2.0 uses. The RADDS build could probably support RTOS because it has no networking support (because RADDS has neither WiFi nor Ethernet) so it has more free RAM.

I was hoping that either the manufacturer of RADDS or someone else would take responsibility for the RADDS port of RRF, but that hasn't happened. If anyone does take that on and gets the RTOS build of RRF for RADDS working (which should be easy to do - I can advise if necessary), then I'll accept pull requests so that it can be kept in step with the Duet builds of RRF.

btw I released a RADDS build of RRF 1.21.1RC2a earlier today.

That must have been quite some work! RTOS! Hope I can get one of those boards in the next month to test it! Thanks for all that work!

I have put a new but untested RADDS release of RRF at [github.com].

Hey guys, its been a while...

I want to try to pressure feature but im on 1.14 and I hear its bug on this version so im looking to flash the last release I guess but since im coming from 1.14 there are LOT of stuff fix or added . I check the change log quickly but my version is so old and lot of stuff do not apply to us I guess...

Can anyone give me the big change here ? I dont use a lot of feature, I mainly want to know if there something that should be change in my config coming from 1.14 or the way we print.

Also 1.21 release on june 5 is the right one to flash right ? I want a stable release ( dont want to beta test the very last untested one)

Nobody has taken on the job of testing RADDS builds of RRF, so I hesitate to call any release stable. The latest build for RADDS is 1.22 at [github.com]. Build 1.22 for Duet is stable.

From memory, the main things you need to be aware of when upgrading from 1.14 are:

- You need to PID-tune your heaters (M303) otherwise you are likely to get heater fault messages
- You won't be able to move axes before homing them unless you put M564 H0 in config,g
- If your printer is a CoreXY then you will need to reverse the Y motor direction (M569)
- The deployprobe.g and retractprobe.g files are run automatically when bed probing, so make sure that you don't have any that you are not using in /sys on the SD card.

There may be other things that I have forgotten. Read the "Upgrade notes" sections of the release notes at [github.com] to check, for all versions after the one you are upgrading from.

@dc42 I may have time in the coming months to take it over. Also did you happen to see the issue I opened on GitHub about the MAX endstop pins. Earlier on in this thread you mentioned that you just needed to know where on the Due they were wired to.

Re: RADDS work now stable with RepRap Firmware

Yes I saw the issue you raised. However, I have stopped maintaining non-RTOS versions of RepRapFirmware. If you or someone else builds and tests an RTOS configuration of RRF for RADDS, and submits a pull request (which may also include supporting the additional endstop inputs), then I will consider accepting it. You will need to check whether those additional endstop input pins are already assigned to other functions in RRF, for example the Z probe or the fan tacho input.

@CthulhuLabs, are you interested in taking this over? If so then I will do a RADDS-RTOS build of the forthcoming 2.02 release of RRF and hand it over to you for testing.
