Possible to omit printer name prefix?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Possible to omit printer name prefix?

Cura slices a file named say 'xyz.stl' and gives it a default name of 'CE3PRO_xyz'. Is there a setting I've not yet found making it possible to omit the printer prefix? I only have one printer and I know its name! That would avoid editing it every time before I save the geo-code.


The Creality Ender 3 V2 (and I think most printers?) displays so few characters anyway that it's already hard to select the wanted file name. This seven character prefix just makes it almost impossible.
