Just had some minute to give the CNC plugin a try on Visual Studio. There is a description on how to write plugins for Repetier-Host: Repetier-Host plugin Dev.

I followed this and I can proper build the plugin DLL from the sources and could add the build DLL to Repetier-Host…

I had a short view on the plugin so far. I guess it is only a jog dial with variable distance settings and the capability to use the keyboard for control the xyz axis… Cursor buttons are used for moving xy and the pageUp/Down is used for z. With F9-F12 you can switch between the distances. There are two other addons, one is the Z-Probe capability and the other is the spindle control…
So I agree, it will not giving much benefits against the manual control…

But, there might be some potential to add additional things…

Cheers,
Juergen
