Direct X and Y Coordinates Entry

Postby geekhands » Wed Mar 29, 2017 9:08 pm

It'd be great to have the ability to position the extruder head in either specific pre-configured X and Y positions or have the ability to enter specific X and Y coordinates in Ideamaker or via the touch screen.

I'd like to be able to calibrate the bed from the same positions each time without handling the extruder manually.

Currently I print 20mm x 20mm cubes in precise locations.

If there was a screen that had 9 preconfigured squares on the touch screen and the extruder simply moved to that position it'd be a time saver and take away unwanted stress on the rods and belts.

Something like this image:

That is a lot of programming for little benefit. May I suggest you simply make 9 different idea files with each position saved.
