A few more UI proposals (and a poll)



  • How often do you use the Console and Setup buttons?

    I rarely use them and was thinking of moving them into the the Control page where Move and Extrude are now and moving Move and Extrude to their places. That way you can get to those pages directly if you're in the Print page.

    Speaking of Move, I was also thinking of an alternate layout in a more familiar "cross" arrangement for the X and Y and a vertical column of buttons for Z. Maybe with a button to toggle the movement scale. Of course, this only works for the fixed XYZ kinematics which is why it would be optional. It's also dependent on button spacing and size being usable on other than 7" panels.

    Thoughts?



  • Both changes sound excellent to me. I’d also like to see the z position shown on the print page. I often use the z position to get a feel for where things are. X and Y position on the print page wouldn’t be a big deal for me.



  • Ditto for the current Z on the print page



  • I actually use the Console quite a lot - I use the bed leveling assist method, which tells me (in the console) how much to turn each screw for a level print bed; so it is run at least a few times every day.

    Though the Setup can be hidden more (only used after a display firmware update and initial setup).

    Do you use it enough that it'd bother you to have the console button moved to the control page?



  • Having the button changed to an icon button the size of Home buttons, will be OK for me.
    Currently I have to probe the bed before each print (usually only to confirm it is still flat), but each day I have to probe quite a few times (going back between the Control and Console).
