Cura model name in save file name


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura model name in save file name

Hey everyone!


There might already be an option for this within Cura, but I am unable to find it if it exists.

Is there an option for using the model names in the filename Cura saves? When I load more than one model it uses only one of the models name as a base for the export filename, and it would become MUCH easier to remember which models already was sent to print if the filename included all the models within it.

    Wouldn't that result in extremely long filenames? There are printers that refuse to load (or even display) gcode files with long names.
