How to change the default file generated for models ??


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to change the default file generated for models ??

Using a CR10s Pro V2 and I've found it has issues with filenames more than 16 characters long. The problem is compounded by Cura's default file naming process, which adds "CCR10SPRO" to the start of every file name, chewing up 9 characters of my 16 character limit. 


Is it possible to stop Cura adding this prefix to every file or better yet, alter the prefix that's automatically attached ?

    Untick "add machine prefix to job name" in preferences... or manualy rename each file before saving 😉




    Thank you good sir, I was certain there had to be an option for it somewhere, but for the life of me i couldn't find it yesterday lol.

    Was already doing the manual rename, but forget every now and then.

    You will not only have problems with long filenames, when a filename starts with _ (underscore) the file will not show up on the display!


    Interesting to know, thank you again.

    There is also a plugin in the marketplace that allows for more control of the prefixes.


    Cheers Nallath, I went and found a plugin by fieldOfView (aka ahoeben on forum ?) called "Custom Printjob Naming" that works precisely as advertised.

      • 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
