Feature request: touch map for bed position

  • I remember a Tom S. printer review where he commented that the device did not have a Z-probe but had a touch screen feature that made up for it.

    As I understood it, you could tap a bed map on the screen and the hotend tip would go to that X,Y coordinate. Then maybe have buttons along the side to 'G30 S-1' Z probe, and a check box to control whether the touch map is for the hotend tip or the probe (or perhaps other tool tips). Maybe another button to raise the probe 10mm.

    A complication might be setting bed geometries - circular beds, origin locations (my origin is back right). Perhaps there are RRF codes to set these that I haven't found/needed yet?

    Just an idea, as I know everyone is looking for more stuff to do 🙂
