Adding gcode files directly to models folder
Here is my setup:
Windows 10 server with a farm of 7 printers. All printers are identical and share the same gcode files by using a symbolic link on the printer/models folder.
So if I upload a new gcode file to printer #1 then all the printers will have the new file as well. The problem is I have to restart the server in order for it to notice the new files. Is there a trick or hack I could use to get the server to recognize the new files without having to restart it? I have been using the webAPI to programmatically upload the gcodes to each printer and this has worked 90% of the time as long as the prefixes stay aligned. (0001file1.g, 0002file2.g, etc) However, every once in a while they get off and it causes a big mess.
I'm using a symbolic link on the folders because the 'models' folder is growing over 6gigs now and I plan on adding more printers in the future.
