please add relative panning to the pan action with cura's camera

Posted · please add relative panning to the pan action with cura's camera

so we have a 30 foot long 3D printer that I have been using cura to slice with and I've been having quite a few problems with cura in relation to doing very large slices on the machine, you can look back at some of my previous threads ive made (like combing with retraction) that normally wouldnt be very useful but with a large format printer they become useful.

another one that is starting to annoy me is that panning with the camera doesn't seem to scale with how zoomed in or out you are, if zoomed in really close then it becomes hyper sensitive and the slightest movement turns into a large pan with the camera, and when zoomed out very far (again, 30 foot long printer) the pan basically doesn't move at all.

    This is somewhat complicated by the fact that Cura actually doesn't really zoom, but it moves the camera towards the center.
