I’d like a “software jog control” feature be added to Easel. One that’s available on all screens and available to both Carvey and X-Carve machines. Something along the lines of this:
To the left of the Carve button, there would be a “Jog Controls” button.
Upon clicking this button, a popup window appears, with jog controls, as well as text labels indicating the current X, Y and Z positions. If the current project is in metric, the coordinates are displayed in mm, if imperial then in inches.
In the window there would be -100,-10,-1,-0.1,-0.01, 0.01, 0.1, 1, 10, 100 buttons for X, Y, and Z, similar to the jog controls in Cura and Simplify3D (both are 3D slicing software for 3D printers - Cura is open source so you should be able to find it, download it, and install it and see what I mean by this feature). If the machine hasn’t been homed yet, clicking on any of the “move by xx amount” buttons will first home the spindle/router.
There should also be a button which turns the spindle/router on & off (this would be very helpful for those times where I just want to plunge and make a drill hole in a specific spot)
Clicking outside the popup window, or clicking the “Jog Controls” button again, closes the window.
