Polling Position of Printer
Garth_42 last edited by
Hello everyone, we are polling the state of one of our printers via a get request of machine/status. When we poll the machine this way we aren't able to tell when the printer is moving or not moving as it reports "idle" regardless of movement. Is there a better way to understand the true position of the machine at a point in time?

@garth_42, DWC shows the current x,y,z coordinates. Have you tried to see how it gets it?
E.g. using the Inspect function of browsers such as Chrome which show you the HTTP requests/responses.
@garth_42 you can test if this is an issue with the timing/formatting of your network request vs what is been reported by making a move and using echo command to report what the printer status is during the move. very simplistically:
sent: echo state.status received: idle
sent: G1 Z25 F2000 sent: echo state.status received: busy
this is just using the console in DWC
