Reload Models with Different File Names

Posted · Reload Models with Different File Names

First time post


I don't know if this is unique to my workflow, but I run in to it all the time.  I load the model, set up my settings, put in some support blockers or other customizations, and then in the preview I see something that I need to tweak in the part design.  After I've made the changes it would be great to be able to re-load the new design and keep all the settings, but my CAD workflow means that the tweaked version has a different file name (rev_01 vs rev_02).  Since I'm picky about keeping track of which exact version this is that I'm printing, I have to redo all the setup.  So for me it would be great to be able to manually re-load the part from a user selected file. 


Would anyone else appreciate this?
