Remember, store or set default folders

Recommended Posts

I like to save my Project files to a specific folder, my stl files for opening are in a different folder, and I 'Save to file' the gCode files to a third folder.

 

Is there no way in Cura to set the defaults for these 3 locations without having to manually change every time ?

If your folders are always the same, put a shortcut for each one in the 3 different folders.

So with one doubble click you jump in the right place !!!

@JCD that is almost the perfect solution.
Only problem is I always have my folders arranged in 'date modified' order so that the most recent files are always at the top.

Maybe I need to run a small script when staring the pc that recreates those shortcuts, so they always near the top of the list.

 

Update : solved the position issue : changed the system time to year 2099 and then created the shortcuts. Then changed system time back to internet sync time. Now the file have a timestamp of 81 years from now, so hope at 135 years old, I'll be able to remember why they suddenly move position in the list.

    • "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.
