I have released Duet Web Control 1.15b on my GitHub repository which brings several bug fixes compared to 1.15a.
Although the changelog looks rather long most of these enhancements were minor so I decided to not bump the version to 1.16 yet.

Here again the changes since my last version:

Added option to display webcam streams using an iframe (aspect ratio fixed at 16:9)
Added selection button for theme and allow no theme to be selected at all
Added my own code to control Piecon (thanks iDeveloUK for the idea)
Corrected typo in README (thanks iDeveloUK)
Allow manual refresh of webcam images if no update interval is specified (thanks iDeveloUK)
DWC will automatically reconnect after a DWC update if the default password is used
Improved temporary work-around for "Download File" buttons for Duet WiFis
Changed default extrusion feedrate to 5mm/sec
Removed redundant "min" files from CSS and JS directories
Bug fix: Temp chart showed wrong color for a chamber heater
Bug fix: If a DWC instance didn't start an upgrade and RRF reports it, it automatically disconnects and asks the user to reconnect when read
Bug fix: Before files or directories are created their filenames are checked for bad characters
Bug fix: Enumeration of Z probe types was incomplete
Bug fix: Flot sometimes caused a JS error due to a missing condition

Along with this web interface version I'm happy to release v1.18 of my firmware fork. Most of the included changes are once more credited to dc42, so many thanks again for them!

in addition I have implemented a new interface to allow an external 3D scanner to be attached to the Duet boards, which required some changes in the web interface as well, but unless explicitly activated this extension should not be visible for regular users. I'm sorry that I cannot publish an example program (yet) but if anyone is interested, some basic documentation is available here on my GitHub repository.

As always you can download DWC 1.15b here and precompiled firmware binaries of my firmware fork from here.

If you encounter any problems with the firmware or web interface, please report them in this thread or open a new issue on my GitHub page.

Thanks for the updates!

What is the advantage of controlling the 3D scanner from the Duet/DWC?

I made this change for an OEM who would like to control his machine and the attached 3D scanner using a single interface. In this case his 3D scanner will not have network access, so the only way to operate it is via DWC.
