This may seem like an oddball request, but I’ve often found myself wishing for this feature:
I want to be able to use the CNC like a manual milling machine. I can certainly create complex multi-tool g-code procedures in Fusion 360, but sometimes (for example when I just want to cut a simple trench) all that toolpath creation is just a huge pain in the butt. So I want to be able to set my height (Z) and set the X and then lock those both in place whilst leaving the Y axis free to push by hand! I know right? People are scratching their heads. The whole purpose of a CNC is to automate… I know, I know… but…
Anyone know of a way to do this? Marlin has custom commands, but there doesn’t seem to be g-code to lock and unlock axes.
Perhaps with GRBL?
