Feature Request: More advanced GCode naming options

Feature Request: More advanced GCode naming options

It would benefit us and hopefully others to have the ability for GCode filenames to have more than 8 characters. I think in 2021 we can move beyond the 8 character filename limit that Windows imposed on us in the past. Currently the only options are "Item Number + Part Number" or "Incremental". While we have barcoding in testing phase which can help reduce this need, there are often times when you have to do a re-cut or one-off where there is a lot of time spent searching for the correct gcode file and cross referencing paperwork.

I would love to see a system like the Work Order naming convention system where we can use placeholders/variables to name our GCode files.
eg "%ITEM_NUMBER%-Face#%FACE_NUMBER%-%PART_NAME%-(%PART_NUMBER%)" could produce "123.00-Face#6-Upper Bottom-(10)" as your gcode name


Also bonus selfish reason: the Item numbers are limited to 9999 in the "Item Number + Part Number" convention and we just hit this limit.
