Feature/Plug-in request: coordinates readout for User specified Z seam

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Feature/Plug-in request: coordinates readout for User specified Z seam

As someone who absolutely loves user specified Z seam alighment feature in Cura 3, it is a pain to count grid lines manually to figure out the exact coordinates of where I'd want each model's seam to be. 


It would be a huge time saver if Cura has the ability to click anywhere on bed platform and display coordinates for faster manual input, or even change the Z seam X/Y input fields (both global and per model settings) to a clickable button for user to click anywhere on the print area. 


Would prefer to have this feature be independent from Cura itself as I use Lulzbot's edition and it take some time for that version to catch up, I lack the know-how to create such a plug-in but would really appreciate it if anyone is willing to tackle this feature.
