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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
