Reordering of items on the bed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Reordering of items on the bed

Could someone tell me a way of reordering the print-one-at-a-time sequence?

I have a clean layout of keyrings and dont want to adjust them by hand. As you can see in the screenshot, it has a wonderful way of ordering items on the bed. Seems a bit unlogical:

Problem is, it must go from front-right to back for each row, otherwise the fan shroud will get in the way :) I have set my "head size" under machine settings to very small so that it would work with this spacing. I tried two next to each other and that works fine.

I tried to hack the gcode, but there is a command at the beginning of each segment that tells the print to move to the wrong place. e.g.

;Layer count: 23

;LAYER:0

M107

G0 F9000 X163.442 Y21.870 Z0.200 <--- This one here I think is the problem

;TYPE:SKIRT

G1 F1200 X163.625 Y20.738 E0.01438

G1 X163.882 Y19.615 E0.02883

G1 X164.211 Y18.513 E0.04325

G1 X164.585 Y17.505 E0.05673

 

Is this line of code really necessary? Can I leave it out?

 

It would be nice feature to click on the item on the bed and set its order with a simple index.

 

Any suggestions are well appreciated :)
