Revision to Duet Web Control Manual

Tony

 
== Overview ==
 
This manual is for DWC version 1.2.1-b2 and later.
 
When opened in a browser Duet Web Control starts in the machine control screeen, when viewed on a large screen will look similar to this:
=== Homing and Moving Axes ===
 
Before some axes can be moved they must be homed, This can be overridden in the rules dependSettings on the printer configurationnewer DWC versions but it is best practice to ensure all axes are homed before moving them. If an axis requires other axis to be homed before it is homed you get an error, as shown below:

This error also shows that the Web interface is using the Gcode "G28 Z" to home the Z axis - the same as if the gcodes were entered manually in the console or over USB.[image|694|size=large|align=center]

Once the axes are homed they turn from orange to blue:

Axes can be moved using the buttons in large or small steps and the axes co-ordinates are shown in the machine status box:

Defining macros is shown in a later step in these instructions.
== Print Status ==
 
The print status page does not display any useful information until a print is started. Once a print is started though it shows the layer times, forcastforecast for print time remaining based on the layer numbers and/or filament usage. It alosalso allows for Fan, extrusion ration and print speesspeeds to be adjusted in real time:
