Another vote for text boxes and +/- buttons so you can quickly change the setting in a fine-grained manner without having to keyboard.
And for fan controls too, please.
I do also like the sliders, though.
Both M206 Y10 and G10 P0 Y10 ought to work. G92 Y0 will not.
I appreciate the info from all, but David I think there are some issues with M206. I went back and played with M206 Y10 again and it does some wierd sh*t. It probably doesn't matter; I admit my need is an outlier. But, in case it is of interest:
What I commanded (except for the initial M206, everything was done using "Head Movement" controls)
And other (repeatable) bizarre behavior.
But the bottom line is it doesn't move the axis globally. The head still obeys the M665 bed radius limit from the physical 0,0 center, not the axis-shifted center.
Using absolute coordinate gcode moves does remove the strange jumping around but the head still will go where I don't want it to go and it adds the confusion of the status display coordinates no longer matching the gcode coordinates.
What is wrong with using the G10 X0 Y10? (calibration aside?) It is ok to calibrate on a smaller radius that you end up printing on.
I was hoping that there'd be a simple gcode setting that would be global in effect. But yes, I now see that I could increase the printable radius, use the G10 adjustment, and tweak the probe points in bed.g and the mesh grid radius in config.g
I feel like I'm missing something obvious and that there's an easy way to do this that I haven't found yet…
I've got a delta with an effector fan shroud that interferes with a bed clip, so my allowable print area radius is smaller than it could be because of that one spot.
I'd like to shift the whole print area in the -y direction in software. This lets me increase the effective print area radius.
How can I do that and have it be in effect for all operations (such as bed calibration)?
I've tried M206 Y10 and I've tried a Y move followed by a G92 Y0. Both appear to be intended only for cartesian use; the delta geometry calculations seem to get messed up after that.
I've tried G10 P0 Y10 but that only changes the tool. Calibration is still centered on the geometric 0,0 (and would hit the clip if I increased the printable radius.
And yes, I could fix this by changing hardware (not easily) but I'm hoping there's an easier way.
Thanks for any pointers!
