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

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
