Only output X3G files / delete gcode files

Mon Dec 26, 2016 11:38 am

Hey all,

I made a quick script for deleting the ".gcode" files that are generated by Simplify3d.

As my printer can only use ".x3g" files, the gcode files are just filling up folders on my computer never to be used.
The script will delete the gcode file after Simplify3d has converted it and generated the x3g.

If you have a 3d printer that uses x3g, try it out for yourself:

I have made gcode files open with Notepad and x3g files open with Simplify3D (and they will!). This way I can easily know which is the x3g file.

Great tips guys! You can also enable the displaying of file extensions by default in your file browser.
