    ive spent last couple days figuring out on how to control MPCNC whit a DS4 and it works.
    so easy to locate the starting point,set origin and start the job from controller

    Cool! Is there a practical reason for this or just fun?

    Ooh! I’m totally interested in that. Are you using a modified ramps/marlin setup, or something completely different? Can it be set up for other controllers?

    I did it because my pc is few meters away from mpcnc and setting the starting point was really tricky like how far it is from the surface of the work.
    It is runnin DS4windows and autohotkeys script, so there is no need to mod the firmware it works on xbox cotroller aswell.
    I think best option is to go GRLB and control the machine from estlcam and estlcam has direct controller support and that will cut the workflow to only 2 programs being 3 now
