I buid a maslow (makermade cnc kit) in our local fablab.
I can only work on it 2 nights a week.
The ideal situation is: When the sled is centered on the machine, the red dot in groundcontrol is in center.
This is now the third time the machine loses center. and when pushed home, the sled is to high on the board.
One thing that frustrates me so hard is that there is no button to tell the software the sled is back in center position… So software and hardware are aligned.
I need to calibrate again and again and again… This is verry frustrating and take so much of the time window we have at the lab.
Why o why is their no option to physical position the sled with the arrows in ground control and then tell the software the sled is centered? (like define home for Z, a define center for XY.) This takes literaly 2 minutes, as my center of the board is drilled and i printed a part so the sled is dead center in a few clicks.
But then the red dot in groundcontrol is off center.
As far is i can read here i’m not the only one with this problem an for sure not alone who thinks this is frustrating.
So this might be the best update for Groundcontrol 1.27 i guess.
I’m no programmer at all, but if someone can create a programm like ground control, adding a center xy button, can’t be that hard i think.
