I'm considering upgrading my Ender 3 Pro to the Duet 2 Maestro or RKS v1.3 for Trinamic drivers ... not sure whether the Duet's worth more than twice the price... curious what sold you on it??

I already have a Duet Wifi for my HEVO so it was a natural fit.
I also like the idea of them being made in the UK with QA there. Considering the currents involved - I just feel safer with their stuff in my printers.
Plus, the Duet Maestro is quiet! :)
I'd say the wifi is overkill for ender, but the maestro is a perfect fit.
Just be careful where you buy them. I read stories that some resellers don't include the connectors and crimps that should come in the box.

Do you have fan blowing air in or pulling air out?

Hi mate,
Any reason why there isn't any access to the the usb or SD card??

Other than I don't really need them - nope.

Looks great. How did you mount it to the 2020?

Well that depends on your printer ;) I used this on a modded Ender 3 - right behind one of the Z screws. Mounts great over the bottom piece.

LOL I meant where do the screws go but noticed where in one of the make pics. I'm putting it on a Tronxy X5S-400 and need to mount it within the frame. Nice design I'm still trying to figure out how it prints without supports as it has a ton of bridging areas.

I printed it twice already (third one coming up soon to perfect the design). No problem with bridging on the Ender or the Hypercube.

Is there a lid in the works?

A lid is already in the original file I based this remix on.
Check that one :)

What size screws are used to secure the top to the case? This is not mentioned on the original case you remixed it from.

M5x20 in my case.

Comments deleted.

Can you please make a version of this for the 3030 extrusion version of the bottom?

If the Duet 2 Maestro Breakout Board is added (to add two more stepper drivers) will the top still fit on the box or will there not be enough height to do this?

No chance. It's a pretty tight fit with all of the cables as it is.

Did you do it in Fusion 360? Can you provide the cad file so I can make the box taller to accommodate the breakout board?

This isn't my design. Merely a modification of it. If you take a look at the original one - You'll find a 3030 version of it. I used FreeCAD to modify the 2020 edition. If you still need someone to do the modding - I can take a look during the weekend.

Do you have a picture of your setup? I have a Maestro inbound and am looking around at enclosures.

Pic uploaded (temp cabling mind, so MESSY as hell).

Cool, thanks! My Duet Maestro board just arrived this evening! Did you need to change any cables or connectors.

I used most of the regular Ender ones, but I don't like how messy it all is.
I will be replacing everything soon :)

That said, you should replace connectors for the ones that came with the Duet. They are awesome.

My Duet Maestro from M3D didn't come with any cables aside from the USB. Do you have a recommended reseller for the Duet cabling?

That's normal. The original box has a bag of Wurth Elektronik crimps you need to crimp on yourself.
I'm one of those crazies who actually enjoy that kind of work ;)

So no, I don't know of an reseller that would also do cabling.

What original do you mean? Do you mean from the pre-release deals? As far as I know, M3D is the authorized reseller for N. America, so it should be the standard package. I'm wondering if they left something out of my shipment.

The contents of my box (both for the wifi and maestro) were the board, some stickers, a bag of 100 crimps and a set of connector shells and ferrules exactly as they write on their web site:
Provided with Molex compatible plugs and crimps as well as ferrules for power and heater terminals.

So yeah, no cables - this is normal. You have to crimp cables yourself.
