@madgrizzle I’ve been thinking about how I can use my “no longer touchable” 5" touch screen on my raspberry pi controller…
I originally tried running the full raspian desktop on the pi and displaying a full screen chrome window with the webcontrol page on it, but it was too small. I reloaded the image with the lite version and so increasing the font size on the command line interface, I’d like to get data over the web socket to the display to show on the command line screen. Partly because the screen is mounted on the controller and I hate that it is doing nothing and part to better position the cut piece to get more efficient board use. I wanted to open up the discussion to anyone else and see what other items would be useful to see? This would be display only, no interaction.
The list I was contemplating. The assumption is that webcontrol has this information and it can be transferred (I’ll work that part out).
HOME - X: , Y: ( home position)
LOCATION- X: , Y: (current position)
GCODE MAX- X: , Y: (max height and right position of loaded gcode)
GCODE MIN- X: , Y: (lowest point and left position of loaded gcode)
DELTA MAX- X: , Y: (distance from home position)
DELTA MIN- X: , Y:
SLED(+)- X: , Y: (distance from edge of sled - so I could use a tape measure quickly to figure out if it will fit)
SLED(-)- X: , Y:
Thoughts (other than this is stupid, don’t do it)?
