hi tinkergnome

idea for home :

home

 

You can replace the icon bed temperature in the priming screen by the adrien's icon ?

 

I have a question,it is possible to start printing with a specific Z ?

Cool, seven at one blow... B)

I think the little house is the most intuitive and deserves closer attention, would you agree?

A trick question this is...isn't it...? :rolleyes:

(you are right - let's put it on the virtual todo list)

I hope so... - that would be the next logical step. :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: todo list... ;)

Something like the X/Y/Z Shift plugin * - but not restricted to Cura.

* - This plugin is fairly old (that means... older than the Ultimkaer 2) - but with a small modification it could still do it's job - even for recent Cura versions.

Do you know what is Daid's position regarding your dev?

I really think they could consider adding this to the master branch at some point.

Keep up the good work :)

There is no explicit pushing from my side - i'm too prejudiced... ;)

David made a statement in this thread. That's not a categorically reject - i think.

...and the pm_dude seems to have more "insider" knowledge ... ?

 

...

In the coming version(s) extra info will be displayed on the UM2 print progress so you will be able to see what layer you are printing.

pm_dude is also a python expert so maybe he knows more... Seems like Daid isn't rejecting the idea (he says he hasn't time for that), but as it's already well advanced it could be good to integrate it in the standard version (at least for the display part, maybe the move axis part is more dangerous?)

Hello. I have no inside except I have seen the pull request integrated. Or was I mistaking with another feature? I'll have to verify...

Well it seems like I was wrong. I confused it with some other think on the CuraEngine side.

I thought you had done a pull request but didn't. Daid wont intergrate your change if you don't do a pull request. And if you do, there is no guaranty he will accept it. I know its something of interest.

Correct, there is no pull request for this topic yet.

I think this were too many little changes in a lot of files for a single pull request (at the moment).

I consider to make several step by step suggestions (via pull request) instead. This will take some time and effort, but is probably a better approach.

(and as a side effect: one can notice earlier wrong directions - and if the master it likes or not... :roll: )

We will see...

Why is a house icon for the bed temp "intuitive"? I'd call it misleading.

no ! no ! there is confusion EldRick :)

The icon Home ( All ) it's a house no problem :)

Just change the icon temperature in the priming screen.

As rigs said: this are two different topics. We want to use the house for the (recently added) "Move axis" menu.

And the bed temp icon is intended for the "Heatup screen" (== priming screen) - this weird thing that you probably rarely take notice of - because it's shown only for UltiGCode during the heatup stage.... :wink:

Till later!

hi tinkergnome

friday's meditation...

A new extension for the print screen :

1# screen

MINI GEEK

 

Change :

Removal " tune " ----> replaced by the second screen button

In the ABORT ( or another name ? ) ----> Abort,Pause and make coffee :)

 

2# screen

MINI GEEK 2

 

Retraction option

For Acceleration and x/y jerk, I do not think this is possible ?

Led adjust.

 

Till later

I see - you're probably never running out of ideas.... :)

I would like to replace the "ABORT" function with "PAUSE" - and integrate the abort function in the pause menu. I often use at first the pause function and decide later, if i want to abort... what do you mean...?

And there is no need to hide the "TUNE" button, there is still room for a third button in the bottom line. So would the tune menu be still accessible for evereone who likes it...?

 

...

2# screen

 

 

Retraction option

For Acceleration and x/y jerk, I do not think this is possible ?

Led adjust.

 

So, you suggest a second level of "instant tuning" options...

Why not...? .... if you don't expect it for tomorrow... :roll:

There are gcodes for acceleration and jerk already - so it should also possible to change it manually during print.

I should better avoid to bring in new ideas.... but here are some examples...:

 


* M200 - Set filament diameter
* M201 - Set max acceleration in units/s^2 for print moves (M201 X1000 Y1000)
* M202 - Set max acceleration in units/s^2 for travel moves (M202 X1000 Y1000) Unused in Marlin!!
* M203 - Set maximum feedrate that your machine can sustain (M203 X200 Y200 Z300 E10000) in mm/sec
* M204 - Set default acceleration: S normal moves T filament only moves (M204 S3000 T7000) im mm/sec^2 also sets minimum segment time in ms (B20000) to prevent buffer underruns and M20 minimum feedrate
* M205 - advanced settings: minimum travel speed S=while printing T=travel only, B=minimum segment time X= maximum xy jerk, Z=maximum Z jerk, E=maximum E jerk
* M206 - set additional homeing offset
...
* M928 - Start SD logging (M928 filename.g) - ended by M29
* M999 - Restart after being stopped by error

You will design some nice arrows, right...? ;)

We should stay at 7 pixels in height and as wide as necessary for a smart look...?

Stay tuned... ;)

:) sorry !

Bad explanation on my part.

Now all option in "tune" function are obsolete : temperature, speed .....( because is direct on display )

Remains : retraction, pause and led brightness.

well, rectraction and led bfightness in the new screen.

Move Pause in the "abort" function. ( not replace )

you understand ? :)

My english is so bad...

 

So, you suggest a second level of "instant tuning" options...

Why not...? .... if you don't expect it for tomorrow... :roll

 

Of course tinkergnome,this is not a race ! You have alllllllllll the time, until the next idea... :)

I specify : If you do not have the time or desire to continue to modify the firmware for me as it's very good.I hope not to be too boring.:)

Ok ok, i agree - "tune" would be obsolete.

 

...

:p Yeah... - that's already clear - there's no innovation without a bit of pressure....

(i will need some holidays soon... ;) )

 

...

I hope not to be too boring. :)

Is this a translation issue...?

(or do i confuse "ennuyeuse" with "insistante"...?)

:lol:

The visible changes are small this weekend.

Instead i refactored a lot behind the scenes (although it was working well - dynamic memory allocation is not the best choice for such a project).

The "Move axis" menu has the new home icon from rigs - and it has a new home at all. I moved it down into the "Expert settings" - i think it is better to group such things together (at the moment).

Um2 geek moveaxis 02

The binary files on GitHub are refreshed (although there's no need for an immediate update).

Alongside i try to prepare one ore more pull requests for the master branch.

Let's just go step by step through the todo list...

I think the "Shift axis position during print" is the next task.

See you!

So what changed in the 15.01 "a" version?

 

You're right, the "a" isn't documented yet...

(this is a characteristic trait for developers... documentation is annoying... - i trusted that no one will notice... ;))

There was a small bug related to the "Abort" function. There was no way back to the main menu after aborting a print.

This is fixed with the "a".

Thank you very much for this mod! I was thinking it would be nice to see the Z height or layer number and of course you guys thought of it already. Very cool interface.

I hit that abort bug, too.

BTW, when you select Pause from menu 1, it immediately retracts to the corner, before giving you any choice of abort or not - no chance to change your mind if you click Pause by accident.
