Cura times seem way off for long prints

Posted · Cura times seem way off for long prints

I've been venturing into longer prints (20-30 hours+) and have noticed the time it shows to complete it in Cura is usually an over estimation. While that is nice when it doesn't take as long, I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this?

My most recent one happened with this Heatwave vase design that you get off thingiverse. The time Cura estimated was just under 48 hours, and it actually completed in 29 hours. That's a pretty big margin to be off by.
