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...

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
