Search/Replace variables

Recommended Posts

Are there any variables that can be used in the search/replace post processing script?  I have it currently replacing ";LAYER:" with "M117 Printing Layer:" so that the LCD on my printer shows the current layer, however I was hoping to figure out a way to make it say "M117 Printing Layer {a} of {b}".  Is this possible?  I'm using Cura 3.1 and I have a Wanhao i3 Plus clone (Monoprice Maker Select Plus).

Not with the current Search & Replace script. It could be implemented in a custom postprocessing script though.

      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.
