as I asked earlier.

Default and only option to open gcode files should be USB, and no-one said anything.
Should I assume it is Ok.
This in view that user should get smooth experience. Like OEM solutions.

Network location can also be an option.

You mentioned earlier you're designing around a 1366x768 resolution. What's a comfortable minimum size for a touchscreen?


i think minimum would be 1366x768

or you can get capacitive touch panels from aliexpress/ebay for monitors
between 50-80$

you can add get good quality touchscreen from amazon for 190$


What I meant to ask what's the smallest physical screen size that's comfortable to use?

I also think 15" should be nice. I recently purchased an Asus VT168H 15" touch screen which is nice. Native resolution is 1366 x 768. Only issue is its a capacitive screen so not usable with work gloves. It is very nice size mounted in an enclosure with an Odroid H2+
See www.asus.com/au/Monitors/VT168H/

Thats my plan for this when you guys are done..

Pleas do not restrict what file locations can be opened. Linuxcnc has a default file location which needs to be supported but we might want to substitute a network location or a USB drive. Ideally, save the last location opened and use that until you navigate to another location..

Since we can't jog when a program is running could you change the buttons in the jog window to something else after starting a program? Pause button, thc enable/disable, arc ok enable/disable, thc voltage set point, etc? (Honestly I don't even know if those thc settings are changeable live during a program in plasmac, or if it's even usefull... just an idea since we can't use the jog functions and it's a good chunk of screen real estate)

(Edit)
Oh, how about switching all the yellow to red when estop is active? Speaking of which the gui needs an estop button doesn't it? Maybe keep that particular button red at all times for quick identification? .... I'm spit balling here and love what im seeing so far

I don't think I have ever opened a gcode file from USB
