Trick #16: Type your own fan/temperature/parameter values

Some of you wont use the sliders to adjust the ventilation / temperatures / parameters values.

Printoid let you use another way to send that kind of commands: the input dialog.

Pretty easy to use.


1/ Open the input dialog

To open the input dialog, you have to:

  • Click on the icon above the slider (ventilation or temperature on the main screen)
  • Click on the value beside the slider (extrusion length, feedrate, flowrate…)

The current value will be displayed in the input dialog field by default.


2/ Use the input dialog

Now you just have to enter the new value:

  • By using the embedded virtual keyboard
  • By using your own virtual keyboard

Click on “OK” to send the value. “Cancel” to abort 😉
