For those who have quick-swap installed/enabled on the SM2, would it be possible to get a button on the menu? From a UI standpoint I think this would be a fantastic idea, instead of scrolling through the settings menu.
EDIT: For clarity, a button for the Parking feature of quick swap
How often do you actually mount or dismount the Quick Swap Kit? After mounting it, I once confirmed it, and assume that I’ll not need this setting for a very long time. The only reason I may have to ever dismount the QSK would be if I’d need to run a project that needs the full build volume…
In other words: I don’t see the benefit from cluttering the UI with such an option - there are other UI elements I’d really prefer to be present, which I’d prioritize…
I would prefer a Button for the Quick Swap Parking position in the UI.
Ah, good point, yes, I can agree to that - sorry for me being obtuse!
My apologies for no being clearer. I meant for the park function. I use this function not only bed/head swap, but also for filament swap as well as head maintenance as needed. (nozzles, clear jams, bit swaps, etc.)
+1 from me, go to quick swap park position button, please!
While not as tidy and efficient as having a button right on the touchscreen, in the meantime you can make a simple
.sh file to quickly click on to wirelessly send the commands to park into position.

Just input your IP and token into it, my old thread on where to find it can be found here. Someone put it in the swap position, note down the X/Y/Z machine coordinates and edit them into the third line above. Save as a batch file, something like
QuickChange.bat and when opened, should send the command to the snapmaker to move to the coordinates to change it out. Sorry I don’t have a mac or linux machine handy to convert to a
.sh, but it should be very similar.
Basically it just swaps to machine coords, tells the machine to go to the specified location, then swaps back to work coords.
Agreed, having the Quick Swap Parking icon on the main menu screen would be a nice feature!
A button for “somewhere in the middle” park position would be very useful, even in the absence of the quick swap kit.
