[RRF] Script for using DotStar as status LED
March 04, 2020 10:05AM
Hello there,

I am coming from a Marlin background but plan to use RRF for my next build in conjunction with a Duet3.
And since the Duet3 supports DotStar LED strips I was wondering if someone already took advantage of that and wrote a script that uses this as a Status LED (similar to Marlins Status LED using Neopixels).
I don't have the hardware yet and haven't written any script for RRF yet but I would like to get into it at some point
but for now I would like to know whether someone already created a script like this.

TIA

You might want to repost this question at [forum.duet3d.com] because many more Duet users read posts there.

The latest RepRapFirmware version supports running a macro file continuously in the background, which should make it simple to change the colours and patterns according to the status of various parts of the printer.
