Repetier-Server @execute parameters
edited November 2015 in Questions & Answers
I have a question regarding the parameters passed to the executable. Should they be single or double quoted in the g-code (I want to pass a single string that may contain spaces)?
Basically I created a script take-snapshot.sh that expects two arguments - a filename of the g-code file being printed and the current layer.
My g-code files may contain spaces i.e. 'Test Cube 40x40x40' instead of 'TestCube40x40x40' or 'Test_Cube_40x40x40'.
What I put in after layer change g-code in slic3r is
@execute takeSnapshot '[input_filename_base]-[filament_preset]-[print_preset]' '[layer_num]'
The slicer then substitutes these when generating g-code file.
If I have spaces in the first parameter my script gets more than 2 expected parameters.
Hope this all makes sense.
BTW what I also found is that when I put the above @execute snippet in the before layer change it messes up the number of layers calculation (I get ½ of the total layers when uploading to the RS.
