Getting a machine name as a suffix instead of a prefix?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Getting a machine name as a suffix instead of a prefix?

Does anyone know how to get the machine name to append to the end of the file name instead of the front. When I save gcode, it will give me machine_originalModelName but OriginalModelName_machine would be so much more useful. I know that the machine tag is in there so people with more than one machine don't accidently use the code on different machines with very different flavors of gcode. But with it in front, it ends up taking up a lot of my printer's view screen and makes it difficult to choose the right print. If it were in the end of the file, I'd basically only see it while transferring files from my slicing computer to the print machine, which is really the only time it matters. Any luck with being able to set that up, or is it only an option between prefix or nothing?

    This would be a great feature, i have all my sliced gcodes in cloud so i could sort them by name and see how often i have sliced this part for diffrent printers.
    I would love that feature.
