Silly Question Determining Distance travelled of HotEnd?

Recommended Posts

I am a bit curious and want to know the Distance the HotEnd travels in a printjob.

I thought of using the length of filament used, but as the head also jumps (without printing) that won't work.

Is there an (easy?) way to determine the length of traveling in Cura?

My curiosity is grounded on the idea: "How many meters can the machine run a line without losing it's position". (I know, in theory, unending, but I want to know real world values).

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
