That is cool. Very low latency. I wonder if it’s if you send short commands, just a few mm ahead of the current position.

I plan on getting my raspberry pi connected to the Marlin pretty soon. I wan TT to add some features, probably starting with octopi or the web grbl. I have no experience with CNC or even manual milling, so I don’t know what kind of features or controls I even would want.

Are these pendants pretty common in larger machines? Like do most large machines have them? Maybe I can read the manual for one and find some of the most common things to integrate.
