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.




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




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")),

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
