Print Removed 'Button'



  • Is there a way to add a 'Print Removed' Button or similar to the PanelDue and Web Interface? Given that you can print remotely (IE, not in the same room), and in our situation, it is possible that multiple people will have access to the printer, it would be helpful to know if a printer has completed a print, and prevent it from starting another print until someone physically attends the printer and presses the button on the panel to say the print has been removed, so that people don't attempt to print on top of another print.



  • You could create a macro button by creating a macro called "print-removed.g" in the root of the macros folder
    The macro could use M42 to set an output low when pressed (print removed)
    In start.g check if that output is high
    If it's already high, cancel print
    If it's not, set it high

    It's fraught with danger though
    What if the print was cleared but the beds not cleaned
    What about cancelled prints. etc
    A webcam would be a better check IMO



  • Is there a way to integrate a webcam view into the interface?
