    I love pretty things and even better when they are functional. I decided to add a touch screen to my BB using the standard Rumba board and a 4" Nextion Display.

    So far here are the results

    Startup


    Quick Demo


    Got a bunch of things I want to still put in, including babystepping, support for second extruder, sd card printing from the menu.

    Features of the display interface so far:
    Keyboard and GCode Entry
    Screensaver
    Menu Timeout
    Temperature setting
    Fan setting
    Power up and down printer (ATX Power)
    Switch on and off case light

    In case anyone wants to see the source code as it progresses:
