    Using filament ran out sensor and need to be able to change filament without nozzle parking.
    I want it to lift maybe 10-20mm but keep at the last know position and resume from it without having to park X and Y.
    Is this possible ?
    I am printing using absolute (i think ?) position, i never home X or Y, i simply move the nozzle where i want it to start on the bed and hit print.
    Of course i slice my model as close to X0 and Y0 as possible for that reason.
    Why ?
    Because i want to be able to control by hand exactly where print will start printing. Maybe on a small patch of tape, without having to measure where that tape is on the bed, i simply move the nozzle over it and hit print.
