GCODE filename starting with special character

Hi,

 

For information only.

 

I recently set up a file to print a mockup of £1 coin that I needed for a project I'm working on. The file name £1_0.2mm_PLA_MK3S_7m.gcode. The slicer worked fine, the viewer could read the file. However when I tried to print the file, my MK3S said that the file was incomplete and asked if I wanted to continue with the print. I selected "yes", the print then stopped at 0% and 0 time without even attempting to print. 🤨 

 

Solution: change the filename from £1_0.2mm_PLA_MK3S_7m.gcode to 1_0.2mm_PLA_MK3S_7m.gcode i.e. removed the "£" character from the filename, tried to print again, it all worked fine. 🤗 

 

I don't know (yet) if this is a "problem" on the Mini+, my other printer. 🤔

RE: GCODE filename starting with special character

Don’t know about the mini but the special character limitation is a known one. It’s the 8 bit embedded library that has trouble and can’t properly parse. Don’t use any special characters just to be safe.
