I am looking at buying a K40 machine and am considering swapping out the controller outight. I have a few questions about things I am reading in the docs.
GLCD: I don’t see info on what the menus are or what the menu structures provide. Is there other documentation somewhere of what they provide? I don’t see anything in the config.txt in the SD Card stock files repo.
GLCD: Can you use the GLCD to set relative work 0,0 coordinates via the X & Y travel and encoder?
Imagine setting the (0,0) reative to an unused area of sheet stock material that you have already started cutting. Like a macro that executes a G92 at the point you jog to.
Not knowing which M2 variant I will get, what is the deal with the 10 pin ribbon cable? Is it nescessary to re-use or can you rewire everything to use the JST connectors? Do I even worry about it at this point?
Connectivity: Is there connectivity options to upload files to the unit? I have used ESP3D and Panucat’s WiFi backpack and RRF’s DWC on my FDM printers, and really like NOT having a PC in the work area.
Air Assist, Camber Ventilation, Z-Leveling: I need some additional I/O on the board.
I am interested in adding a large volume exhaust to the chamber in additon to the conventional nozzle air assist. I am instersted in adding the equivalent of auto bed leveling / Z-Probe.
I can not find a pinout for AUX connections on the board. Is there a pinout somewhere? Can someone point me to it?
Thanks in advance
