Cura Parameter for Min / Max Print Coordinates?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Parameter for Min / Max Print Coordinates?

Hey guys, I was hoping that Cura could pass parameters for the minimum and maximum x and y values used in a given print.

 

My thought is that you could push these values forward into mesh leveling bounds and quickly probe the area of bed being used without waste.

plus 100 for this one.  I feel like Ultimaker could save millions of man hours on this one (assuming there are a million S5 and S3 printers out there, he he).  It would save their own employees significant time as well.

AFAIK, this is already implemented in the firmware for the S5 (and S3?).

Cross-posting is not always a good idea; it splinters the discussion.

 

 

The overlap between devs on GitHub and users on the UM forum is probably pretty small.

 

On this forum, it's possible some users have already found ways to do this.

 

On GitHub, the devs have the ability to add features or report details that might be otherwise unpublished.

So, where do you want my input? Here or on github?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
