[3.3.1 Missing feature] File names on loaded models?


Recommended Posts

Posted · [3.3.1 Missing feature] File names on loaded models?

I loaded 5 different STL files, arranged them on the plate and printed them.
Now I don't remember the file name of each model on the plate, and they look about the same with minor differences.


When selecting a model, there is no information beside location and scale.
Since there is an option to reload all models, all the file names must still be in there somewhere.


It would be very helpfull if at least the filename was shown on the selected model or a "name" layer could be shown, displaying the filename on each model.

    If you turn on the support for multiple buildplates in General preferences, you get a list of all loaded model names

    It's not the most intuitive place to enable it and it's an Experimental feature.

    I enabled (and restarted), loaded a few models but where is the list?


    I think it really would be better to just display the selected model's name togeter with the other data on the screen.

    I agree with MaxMax, also when I save a file with a specific file name, the displayed name on the screen remains the former first loaded model´s name until you manually change it..

    I´d really appreciate that feature, thanks.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
