Introduction

Please read before proceeding to avoid damaging the controller and voiding your warranty

Do not have the USB cable connected at the same time as the Mains Power.

Do not connect the WorkBee to a computer via USB when you don't need to. The Duet has either an Ethernet or WiFi connection, so USB is generally used only when debugging and initially commissioning the controller. All CNC Operations including uploading G-Code files can be done via the web interface.

Do not connect the Duet via USB to a laptop running off mains power.

Other devices powered from the mains may create ground transients. These will flow through the USB cable and may cause the Duet to reset or perform abnormally.

At no point should you press the reset button on your Controller as this can potentially erase the firmware and require your controller to be sent back for testing.

  1. This step only has to been done if your computer is also connected to an external Wifi Network. Open Command Prompt on your Computer.
    • This step only has to been done if your computer is also connected to an external Wifi Network.

    • Open Command Prompt on your Computer.

    • In Command Prompt type ipconfig

    • Under the Wireless LAN Adapter make note of IPv4 Address.

    • The Duets ip Address will need to be on a different Subnet - for example if your adaptor is "192.168.1.10" our Etherent Adpator for the Duet needs to be "192.168.2.10

  2. Open Control Panel on your computer. Access the Network and Sharing centre. Click Change Adaptor Settings.
    • Open Control Panel on your computer.

    • Access the Network and Sharing centre.

    • Click Change Adaptor Settings.

    • Right Click on the Ethernet Port to Edit the properties of that Device.

  3. Click on the heading -> Internet Protocol Version 4 and access its properties. Click -> Use the following IP address:
    • Click on the heading -> Internet Protocol Version 4 and access its properties.

    • Click -> Use the following IP address:

    • Create an IP Adress that reflects the Subnet discovered previously in the Command Prompt -> ipconfig.

    • You can use the example shown, please ensure you place it on a different Subnet, .2 or .1

    • The Subnet Mask will auto generate, It is not required to set a default gateway.

  4. First, check the status of the Ethernet Module by sending command "M552" to Duet. If Duet returns Wifi or Ethernet module is disabled, put it into idle mode it by sending command "M552 S0". If it returns Wifi or Ethernet module is idle, proceed to the next step. Send the Command M552 S1 P-ipadress
    • First, check the status of the Ethernet Module by sending command "M552" to Duet.

    • If Duet returns Wifi or Ethernet module is disabled, put it into idle mode it by sending command "M552 S0". If it returns Wifi or Ethernet module is idle, proceed to the next step.

    • Send the Command M552 S1 P-ipadress

    • We have sent M552 S1 P192.168.2.12

    • The final number of this IP address has to be different from the final number of the IP used on the ethernet port configuration. We used 192.168.2.14 on our ethernet port, so have used 192.168.2.12 on the Duet.

    • Send M552 to confirm the Network is enabled and connected to the correct IP Address.

  5. Open your browser and type the IP address assigned to the Duet. We have used 192.168.2.12 as an example.
    • Open your browser and type the IP address assigned to the Duet. We have used 192.168.2.12 as an example.

    • You should now see the main control page for the Duet!

Bonjour,

Je n'arrive pas a avoir accès au micro logiciel de commande.

J'arrive bien a communiquer avec le DUET via USB et l'interface YAT.

Quand je lance le commande M552 S1 P192.168.160.112 puis m552 j'ai bien un OK. (IP config - 192.168.160.114 )

Quand j'ouvre mon navigateur (chrome) et que je met l'adresse IP (192.168.160.112 ) dans la barre de recherche il ne se passe rien. Je n'arrive pas a trouver de solution sur internet... Savez vous quoi faire ?

Est-il possible de passer par un logiciel qui ne demande pas de connexion internet ?

Bonjour,

Oui j'imagine bien que d'origine, la machine est prête a fonctionner. Sur celle que j'ai trouvé, il n'y avait pas de carte SD. c'est a force de chercher que j'ai réussi a avoir les quelques fichier a mettre dessus. J'ai pu voir qu'il fallait un dossier www pour avoir accès a cette page de control via un navigateur. J'ai donc mis le dossier cité sur le commentaire précédant (https://ooznest.co.uk/wp-content/uploads...). Mais pas de différence. J'arrive a communiquer et il me renvoi sur une page internet vide avec ce message : "Your Duet rejected the HTTP request: page not foundCheck that the SD card is mounted and has the correct files in its /www folder ".

Ma question est la suivante, ou peut-on trouver tout les fichiers d'origine de la carte SD ?? Et quel sont-ils ?

Merci d'avance pour votre temps et votre aide ! :)

Hi Pierre,

The Duet on the Workbee comes pre-configured with all the correct files on the SD Card.

Thanks.

Bonjour,

Justement, je pense avoir scrupuleusement suivit les informations de ce tuto. Sur YAT, le DUET communique bien avec l'ordi...

Apres avoir lu quelques commentaire, est-il possible de ne pas avoir les bon fichiers sur la carte (micro sd) du DUET ? Ya t-il des dossiers de basse pour la mise en route de la machine a avoir ?

Cordialement.
