Settings in exported gcode name or to octoprint

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Settings in exported gcode name or to octoprint

I find myself sometimes doing tests where I vary the fan speed or temperature and then send the print to octoprint.  I have to remember to name each file something different when I do that so that I don't accidentally overwrite a previous generated gcode.  It would be great to be able to put settings into the name as variables similar to the below where the variable setting is 2 underscores, setting name, and then 2 underscores.

 

SimpleBox-ET__EXTRUDERTEMP__-FanSpeed__FANSPEED__

 

When the gcode is exported or sent to octoprint, the name would be

 

SimpleBox-ET205-FanSpeed100.gcode

 

I can dream anyway 🙂

I think you can do that with a small modification of the @ahoeben custom printjob naming  plugin. Perhaps you could ask him to add in the list of the available parameters these two options..  https://github.com/fieldOfView/Cura-CustomJobPrefix

 

You just need to add two lines in the PrintInformationPatches.py file in the relacement section :

            "{material_print_temperature}": self._abbreviate_number(extruder_stack.getProperty("material_print_temperature", "value")),
            "{cool_fan_speed}": self._abbreviate_number(extruder_stack.getProperty("cool_fan_speed", "value")),
