Request: Rename cloud back-up and File Name Regex

Recommended Posts

Posted · Request: Rename cloud back-up and File Name Regex



I would like to submit the following features for a future Cura release:


1.  The ability to rename and/or the ability to annotate cloud back-up files.  It would be great to be able to include some indication of what's different about a given back-up.

2.  The ability to override the default file name for generated gcode based on a template; for example: 'cura-S4_' + [filename] + '_' +  [mmdd] = 'cura-S4_MyModel_0814.gcode'.  It would be nice to insert the date pattern, have the ability to create an increment number for duplicate files and/or change the prefix of a file.


Cura is awesome - keep up the great work!

Thanks for your input!

Point 1 will be addressed when we make another iteration on the backup functionality (soon-ish).

Point 2 is something that is currently in progress (not sure about the full scope of it though).
