I’ve been using CNC.js for a while now and it does most of what I want but it’s dev is pretty much halted at this point and docs for making my own mods are a bit thin for my skills.
After seeing @jamiek’s new plugin I decided to take a look at octoprint to see if it would be a good choice for my workflow. I already use it for my ender 3 and find it a wonderful solution for 3d printing.
There’s a lot to like about Octoprint with my LR but a few things are annoying enough that I hesitate to switch. I was hoping that someone that uses octoprint could address these and give an opinion as to their importance.
I don’t like that the Terminal and the Controls are on different screens . Sometimes I want to do a G0X1200Y1200F5000 and just go to a spot then use the controls to fine tune. I cant see any way to combine the 2 screens.
The controls page doesn’t show me coordinates. I realize they wouldn’t be in real time when running a job but I find them invaluable in job setup. I know I can do an M114 to get them or look at the LCD but it’s just nice to be able to see it on screen.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to to keep keyboard controls active. My wireless keyboard has a mousepad so I’m constantly leaving the webcam window that turns on keyboard control.
I’d appreciate any thoughts on these couple of items. Thanks!
