Prefix/Postfix for filenames

Postby jetdillo » Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:26 pm

It would be helpful if there were a way to set a prefix or postfix string to attach to an uploaded/exported gcode file.
For example, right now, as part of my workflow, I always add "<filament_type>-<nozzletemp>-<extruder>" to the end of .gcode files I upload to my printer.
So, under this scheme, a model named "cube" might wind up being named "cube-PLA-215-LeftSide" or "cube-PETG-240-LeftSide".
This is so when I come back to a project in a month or two and just want to print out a few copies, I know which one to select based on the material I'm going to use.

Ideally, it would be awesome for Ideamaker to add this to the end of the filename based on the Profile being used to do the current slicing op, but I'll settle for being able to use a fixed prefix/postfix string.

I've experimented with shell-scripting this on the touchscreen system by parsing out the stats inside the .gcode file, but that's a bit of a hack.

Notes taken. We will discuss how we can achieve this to meet different needs for this.
