So I am running a rig with a Duet Maestro with a 4 color (Crane Quad) head or a 3 color (Diamond Hotend) . If I understand correctly this device connects to the endstop terminals. But there are only 5 endstop terminals on the Maestro and 3 of them are dedicated to the X Y & Z axis. Are there pins on the expansion headers that can be used for the extra sensors?
Has anyone developed code to use multiple sensors on a multi color rig? The code would need to compare the movement of each filament with the amount of movement on each extruder.
I should add that YAWCam is just another thing running on my PC. If the PC goes to sleep so does my camera feed. Also, if I forget to start or stop the timelapse, I get either nothing or a bunch of JPG images to go back and delete. Again, if Duet could at least send messages to a stand alone device like a Raspberry it would be a huge improvement. It would also seem like the Duet board should be able to capture images from a webcam and save them to the SD card.
This is the exact setup I use. In addition to feeding the live stream to the Duet Browser, I capture frames on Yawcam for making timelapses. This works OK but the timelapse is basic because it is triggered over time increments. What would be really cool would be to incorporate something like Octolapse with gcode to position the X&Y and some means to send a message from the Duet back to the PC to trigger the still shot at each level.
Is there any way to integrate Octolapse type triggering with the Duet and a pi cam short of going with the full (and super redundant) Octopi setup.
Is there a way to connect a Duet Maestro to wifi?
