Customizing file name of exported gcode?

Recommended Posts

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?

    • "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.
