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.

        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
