Forgive me in advance if this topic has been covered but I didn’t find anything in the Comprehensive list of Mods thread so i figure it hasn’t been asked.
I would love to replace my stock LCD with a nicer (color) lcd. I’ve wanted something like this for some time and it occurred to me once again last night as I was looking on Ebay for a voltage regulator and came across this cool looking item with an awesome color screen. It seemed to be overkill for the sake of overkill… which is exactly what I would like for my TAZ.
I won’t lie, the primary reason would be because it would be cool looking but I would also like to extend the cable on it and mount it on the outside of my enclosure and possibly even mount it on a ball joint so I could tilt and position it for easier reading from any position. Bigger text, customizable colors etc.
Has anyone seen a project like this. Also, i’m quite familiar with other solutions like MatterControl Touch and Octoprint including the different plugins for touchui etc but neither is quite what i’m after. Also, I print directly from Simplify3D and not from the SD card. I would really just like all of the content seen on the LCD today but on a color screen. I realize that like has much to do with the firmware, and maybe that’s why this doesn’t exist yet?? Thought it might be an interesting discussion at least.
