Feature request: Naming template for gcode files

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I'd like to have the option to use a naming template for gcode files. The automatic naming does always put UM3 in the beginning, but I only have a UM3 so that's not the most useful info for me. Further, it only keeps the name of the first file that was loaded in that session. If you quickly prepare many prints, you'll have to change the name manually.

Now usually I name them something like:

0130 wh 100 nameofstl.gcode -> 01:30 print time, white, 100micron

0340 red pva hinge.gcode -> 03:40 print time, red PLA + PVA

0440 red black frog.gcode -> dual extrusion red + black

This helps me identify the file and the colors / materials I need to load, but also helps me with the planning when I have lots of prints to do. Of course the name needs te be as short as possible to fit the ultimakers display, hence the abbreviations.

It would be great if it were possible to set this template somewhere in the settings based on loads of variables.

.gcode

or something similar.

Thanks for your consideration.

Regards,

Björn

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
