Working with two bed sizes ?

Working with two bed sizes ?

Hi everybody,

hmm.. it got quiet around here in the last couple of days.

Anyway, my questions is.. how would be best to deal with working with and switching between two different print beds ? My standard print bed is 350x350mm with a 800W heater and because I often print small objects, I am going to attach another smaller printbed on top and in the middle of the bigger one (suction cups/double sided tape ?).

How would I manage this inside my Duet ? I will need to have separate configuration for this second printbed. Different travel limits, different auto-level grid, different PID settings, different thermistor, etc. Would I just create a script with all the settings needed and than just run the script after booting ? Or is there other better alternative ?

Thanks in advance !

Yes, just write a macro file to change the settings to be suitable for the smaller bed, and run it after startup.

These days the forum at duet3d.com is much busier then this one.
