Well- YEAH- and IF Formlabs was shipping printers with that kind of absurd naming convention I could Absolutely see that the names would be a problem.
But they AREN’T, are they?
Formlabs names are comprehensible and memorable ordinary words. A form of mnemonic device that is proven to work. They do so expressly to avoid the kind of idiocy that your list of nonsense text strings exemplifies.
Formlabs gives them names that are, as I pointed out, no harder to recall and associate than are the pre-set names of your Staff.
So your analogy fails in that if your EMPLOYEES came with the list of names you typed… then you would have a real problem dealing with them, wouldn’t you?
You compare a list of personal names I analogized, to a series of unpronounceable and random strings of meaningless characters.
And what is that list of names you wrote reminiscent of?
Why that looks like a list of all the random and meaningless Serial Numbers that all the OTHER gizmos in your office have and which your technician has to look up every time he has to deal with service issues. Because those devices serial number have no correlation to the name you gave the gizmo on your network.
Once more- you prove my point. The names being rational words AND the serial number SIMPLIFIES network setup- servicing- maintenance and human recall of a the specific printer that needs a new tank, or a cartridge of resin.
The demand that you be able to name them something else that you can show NO advantage over the names they come with- other than your Perception that the given names are not as “professional” - is revealed to be simply an idiosyncratic preference without rational justification.
That’s not a criticism… just an observation. I have plenty of idiosyncratic preferences about a lot of things…
i am willing to cop to the fact that they are mere preferences.
So just admit it… you simply really would rather be able to give them all names that are boring less imaginative.
But you won’t name them a random string of numbers and letters, either… you’ll pick words and numbers that you can pronounce and that are memorable… like people’s names.
Ergo- your ACTUAL list of names you would use and Formlabs list of names are functionally equivalent.
You are just the kind of guy who would name his own kid “Son Number 1” rather than “Raging Buffalo”.
