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 ?

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

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

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

/facepalm

 

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.

Interesting to know, thank you again.

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