connect simplify3d to my duet web control

Fri Dec 27, 2019 6:34 am

Hi everybody

I am a new member in this forum. I have been 3D printing for several years.
I like working on Simplify3D.
i own a Creality ender 3 and a Formlabs aswell.
i have been building one 3D Printer by myself too.

I have got a question.
How do i connect Simplify3D to my Duet Web Control.?

At the moment i have to work with the Prusaslicer because it is easy to connect it with my Duet web control
i have to put just the host name :Duet
and the IP adress. and thats all.

but at Simplify3D it is much more difficult to find out how to connect it to my duet web control.

Does anyone could give me an advice.?

unfortunately im not used to working with computers that much. :? :?

thanks nevertheless helping me :)

yours faithfully

Hein Joel

You can't directly upload gcode from S3D to the duet by itself. You're best off just exporting the gcode from S3D and uploading it via duets web interface.

You CAN upload directly from S3D.
(Replace the X's with your IP address)

curl --data-binary "@[output_filepath]" "http://192.168.0.8/rr_upload?name=gcode ... e&time=YYY"
curl "http://192.168.0.8/rr_disconnect"

-----
Pls don't ask me how it works.

I think I found this info over on the DUET forum.

I already work with The web interface
With my own IP adress.
But i have to find where i can get the connection from simplify 3d to my web interface to upload there my g code files.

I have to know how i can upload the gcode files from the simplify 3d to the web interface.

Yours faithfully

@JoelHein89

I should have been more clear in my previous post. S3D doesn't natively support duet WiFi/Ethernet printing. There are work arounds to get it to semi-work though.

You can use curl like Mogal said, but you may need to install curl depending on what OS you're on. Even when uploading from S3D with curl scripts, its not very practical and sometimes doesn't work, which is why I suggested you stay with the web interface.

Add this curl script to post processing within S3D(Change the IP to your printer's IP) if you still wish to send gcode from S3D to your printer:

Code: Select all

curl --data-binary "@[output_filepath]" "http://192.168.1.250/rr_upload?name=gcodes/[output_filename].gcode"
curl "http://192.168.1.250/rr_gcode?gcode=M32[output_filename].gcode" 
curl "http://192.168.1.250/rr_disconnect"
Click "Save Toolpaths to Disk" and save your file to your disk. Once you've done that, it will automatically upload to your printer and start immediately if you've done it correctly.
