auto-height (not auto-level)

I use various print surface, so the height has to be adjusted every time. It would be good if the Z-stop switch is moved to above the actual print surface so that it automatically adjusts for the difference in plate thickness. Right now, it measures Z-height of the bottom of the plate which does not...

Adjustable bed offset at the printer

It would be useful to have a print-offset screen at the Touch Panel to accept manually entered X and Y +/- coordinates. It should also have the option for the printer to pick a random position that the object can still fit within the print bed. It then offsets the XY in gcode at print time. This has...

Re: auto print

The touchscreen delay does not matter. It is the touchscreen that starts the print job, so it obviously knows which file it started printing regardless of where that file came from or what the user manually attempted. What the display shows is not relevant and it obviously does not start a second jo...

Re: auto print

Auto-print would be an option chosen by the sender, per file, in ideaMaker upload option. There is no problem choosing which file is printed as the first one that completes the upload starts. Any others coming in will stay in the queue because the printer is no longer free. The printer would be cons...

Mouse to navigate Slice Preview

In ideaMaker, two sliders are used to view layers: one for steps, and the other for layers. You have to select the layer to view, then move the other slider to inspect the steps. This can get tedious for large object. It would be nice if mouse movement can be used to move both sliders by holding dow...

Re: Filament Monitor / Auto Pause Feature

I like the idea of pause-on-filament-out condition. It would be good if can also call a function at that time to perform a user-selected code such as initiating a page, blinking LED, etc. That works best because it can handle running out of filament for either reel. Auto-extruder change would be OK,...

auto print

It would be nice to have an option to upload-and-print, rather than having to start printing manually. With that option, the print would start immediately after the upload is complete and the printer is free. If not an option, it would be good to follow the standard of starting automatically when fi...
