Ok has anyone been able, or is it even possible to, connect the duet wifi to the Simplify3d user interface? Not slicing then moving over to the duet web interface

Like any other controller. Have you followed the Duet documentation? What problem did you run into?

When I get back working with my printer Wednesday I'll give it another shot and if it doesn't work I'll provide details.

Do you just connect via USB, not wifi? I know S3D has issues with wifi from what I've read.

You need to configure S3D to use hardware flow control in its communication options.

S3D doesn't support connecting to a printer over wifi.

Personally I use S3D to slice, then Duet Web Control over wifi to start the print. But you could use S3D to run the whole process over USB, but then the computer has to stay on for the duration of the print.

I really recommend using the web interface rather than printing over USB. If you do control over USB then make sure you upload the file to the SD card and print from there.

I print only over the web interface and have a 2200VA 4 battery sine wave backup.   Printing off a PC would be my last choice,  so I agree.

I've just been experimenting with sending the S3D output to the Duet Web Control using the rr_upload api.  Its a work in progress and what I'd love to be able to do is upload to job to the SDcard via DWC from S3D, then see the job in the live preview, but not sure it will work that way.

I'm on windows so I installed CURL, then you added the following to the additional terminal post processing section of the S3D profile.

curl -d "@[output_filepath]" -X POST http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/rr_upload?name=gcodes\S3D

I've just got it to work so may not be the final script.  Ideally I'd like to store the upload with the model name, but I've not found the S3D attribute to send instead of "\S3D"
