Shortcut to save g-code in one step?

Fri Nov 30, 2018 12:49 am

Hi all,

I am working on a new printer design. Part of the process is I start prints many dozen times a day, as we tweak the settings and the printer design.

I have a script that automatically picks up the gcode file and sends itP to the printer, no action required there.

But to slice/save the gcode, each and every time I must go:
1) "Prepare to Print" (shortcut: ctrl-e)
2) "Save toolpaths to disk" (shortcut: unknown, I have to use the mouse each time)
3) Choose Save (shortcut: alt-s)
4) Select "yes allow overwrite existing file" (shortcut: alt-y)

Question: is there a single keyboard shortcut, and/or some other way to automate the above 4-step process into a single key-press?

Thankyou kindly.
