Customizing file name of exported gcode?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Customizing file name of exported gcode?

I have a Printrbot Play 3D printer. This printer does not have onboard controls, which means that I cannot select specific files from the SD card. Instead the SD card must have a single gcode file on it called "auto0.g". So when I put the SD card in my PC, and Cura detects it, I click the "save to removable drive" button. Instead of prompting me for what I want the gcode file to be called, it just creates its own name for it.

 

So this is my question: Is there is a way to configure Cura to set the name of exported gcode to always be a custom name I put in, so I do not have to manually go into the SD card and rename the file?

This has been discussed and under consideration for development. If I find the link, I will post it here.
