Suggestion - File Naming Convention

Recommended Posts

Posted · Suggestion - File Naming Convention

Would it be possible to tie the file naming convention to the profile instead if the machine? 



I have several Ender 3 Pros but use different profiles for some of them due to different hotends or nozzle sizes so they use different profiles but all the Gcodes export as CE3PRO.  If the file name would pull from the profile or we had a way to change the naming convention in the profile this would make identifying which machine the gcode was made for without having to preview it.


It is frustrating that we don't have control over the naming convention for the exported gcode.

    There are two plugins in the Marketplace that will let you specify the printjob name: Printjob Naming and Gcode Filename Format Plus.
