Save filename quirk

Recommended Posts

There seems to be an issue with Cura add machine prefix to job name...

The add machine prefix to job name adds the selected model of printer...rather than the name provided by the user.

Unchecked...no "prefix",  checked adds the machine type prefix..not machine "name" prefix

 

I have renamed Monoprice Select Mini V1 profile to TronXY X1 (since there is no entry for anything Anet or Tronxy), but it still loads it as a Monoprice Select Mini V1 or "MSMV1_18650_x_3_battery_top"  rather than taking the name that I put in the "name" section like it did on previous versions...before I had selected Custom FDM Printer...and it put CFDMP_xxx.xxxx.xxxx, on previous versions...I think in the 2.x.x range it would take the name in the name box, shorten it then append to that section...I used to get TX1_xxx.xxx.xxxx and AA8_xxx.xxxx.xxxx... 

That is the quirk (or feature) I am referring to

I tried manually editing the .cfg file in AppData\Roaming\cura\3.4\machine_instances and it broke it...

Crud..that is a CURA issue...not an octoprint issue...

    • "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.
