Reprap Gcode Types for Time Calculation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Reprap Gcode Types for Time Calculation

Hi everyone,

i am interested in the meaning of the different 'Types' (e.g. Fill, Skin, Wall-Outer etc.). Unfortunately i couldn't find any documentation on this topic.

Particularly i am interested which speed setting from the machine ( i use an Ultimaker 2) is used in which part of the gcode. My goal is to develop a exact time calculator in Matlab with the distance from the gcode and the known speed setting.

If there is no such documentation, it would already help me a lot if somebody could tell me the difference between the Wall-Outer and the Skin type.

Thanks in advance!

The speeds are in the Gcode-file. Then there will be a bit of variance to the speed being added by the UM2 as it accelerates/decelerates etc. I would rip apart the code for cura and see how it calculates the time (it's fairly accurate) since it's open source.
