Posted · SD Card - Sorting the list on UM2 screen

Hello,

A while ago someone said that he would like to sort the list of files and folder displayed in the UM2 print menu.

I've looked at the Marlin code for that a bit and no sorting is done at all. It really depend on when the file was placed on the card or in a given folder.

I didn't wanted to start making a sort directly in Marlin when we load the content of the folder since the browser is already slow when many files are present so I did a Python script that goes through the folders recursively and move the folders and files in order (sorted folder first, then sorted files) in and out of a temp folder just to force the FAT to be ordered. It doesnt change the modified date of the files.

Currently it works on Windows. I haven't padded much since it was just a quick test. The path to start the sort is set as root manually at the end. I don't think it would be safe enough at the moment for a wide distribution but if you want to test it out here is the code. The worst that can happen is that files or folders will be moved in a temp folder at the same level and wont be moved back.

 


import os
import tempfile
def SortContent(folder):
print "sorting content for", folder
content = os.listdir(folder)
tempdir = tempfile.mkdtemp(dir=folder)
content.sort()
for f in content:
realPath = os.path.join(folder, f)
if os.path.isdir(realPath):
tempPath = os.path.join(tempdir, f)
try:
os.rename(realPath, tempPath)
os.rename(tempPath, realPath)
except:
print "ERROR: Folder could not be sorted", realPath, tempPath

for f in content:
realPath = os.path.join(folder, f)
if not os.path.isdir(realPath):
tempPath = os.path.join(tempdir, f)
try:
os.rename(realPath, tempPath)
os.rename(tempPath, realPath)
except:
print "ERROR: File could not be sorted", realPath, tempPath

for f in content:
realPath = os.path.join(folder, f)
if os.path.isdir(realPath):
SortContent(realPath)
os.rmdir(tempdir)

root = r'I:\\'
SortContent(root)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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
