BTW, I like what you're doing with the buttonMovePosZ->setLongPressHandler - continuous jog perhaps?

Thats exactly what I am doing. This is a dedicated set of buttons that Jogs the Z up and down...

I created a pull request in your library with the fix for your approval. Works great!

Scott...
 
Brilliant! Thank you very much. I'll pull that straight across and add a formal example. I'm assuming (dangerous) the commented out ' //#define ARDUINO_ARCH_ESP32 1' is superfluous.
Also curious about the 'using' vs 'typedef' - I originally had 'typedef' but at some point moved to 'using' but can't remember why...

Yeah, sorry that was some test code. The 2nd PR that I submitted got rid of that commented out #define. Not sure if you saw that or not. That is all that was in the 2nd PR.

I think this may be the weekend I start moving this to PlatformIO... Trying to squeeze "just a bunch of functions" into the Arduino IDE is becoming a little unwieldy.

P.S. can now (easily) do Z moves with the joystick.

Couple of quick questions:

1. Is there any value in adding an (optional) joystick? I've seen lot of positive views on non-standard pendants but can't recall seeing one on a commercial pendant.

2. I'm looking at making a PCB - anyone interested if I make a few extras?
 

In the words of those awful gameshows my Grandparents used to watch: Here's wat you could've won! :-)

Awesome project, will be attempting this build or very similar once I've built my 2nd DIY CNC (printNC). What program did you use to design your board?

Thank you - I used Kicad for the PCB. I plan to upload the PlatformIO code soon (maybe this weekend) but currently fighting with FreeCAD - on the 5th itteration of the casing base... I added one missing constraint from the base sketch and that's three days work down the pan. (the topological naming problem bites HARD).

A bit of progress on the case - still pondering how to do the buttons. I think I need a day of two off FreeCAD though!



As hoped (or even designed, perhaps?) it feels very comfortable in the hand (with apologies in advance to left-handers).
