Thickness Display

Post by gkas »

I was just watching the newly re-released tutorial of the Double Sided Marlin. Good refresher.

I did notice one great tip that I don't remember being mentioned. On a double sided project, if you hold down the Ctrl key, the bottom right status area displays "Thickness: xxx". It calculates the material thickness at the position of the cursor. REALLY useful. :)

It doesn't seem to work on rotary projects though.
