File Name and Layer Number plug-in suggestion

Recommended Posts

Posted · File Name and Layer Number plug-in suggestion

I love the File Name and Layer Number Post-processing plug-in, but have a suggestion to make it even better. Currently the format is something like
      Layer {current layer} {file name} of {total layers}

It would be really handy if the format was change slightly to something like

      Layer {current layer} of {total layers} {file name}
      Layer {current layer}/{total layers} {file name}

That way you could see at a glance how many layers still had to print. "Layer" could also be abbreviated to "Lyr" to save space.

I currently get around this by previewing my file to see how many layers there are, and Editing the Object List Text, putting /nnn before the object name.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
