[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.
