It's where you place the cursor before you print the number on the display.Printing 9, prints over the 1, but nothing removes the 0.Either clear screen before a print, or print a space after the number.
Thanks for your comment.
Your right about it being a bit tedious, at the start I wanted to show I had added a menu system to enable some control of the device without a computer attached.I wanted to show it in continuous action for a length of time to show the motors don't fry over time, my intention was to put my finger on one of the motors at the end to show they remain ok but I forgot. :)
I wanted to see what people thought, I have other projects I am working on, and I still want to do more to this if I can. I was hoping to make it stand alone, but I am currently having issues with lack of memory on the NANO, I may make a new one with 2 NANO's :)
Nice job, good for those starting with A8 3D Printer.I have done some other mods to my A8 you may be interested in?I have done a blog here: https://3dprintermods.blogspot.com/2017/08/tims-modifications-to-a8-3d-printer-i.html
I'm glad you found something useful.Let me know how you get on.
I am glad you like it.I originally started doing them with a resist pen.But I found that the pen kept drying up. (a lot of resist pens need priming now and then)I was going to try it with Drafting Pen (rOtring rapidograh) with resist ink, but never got around to trying it. (I know there is short versions of these pens for use in plotters)
Thank you very much for leaving a comment, I do appreciate it when someone lets me know they like it.
