Cura 2.3.1 time prediction on UM2+ display

Posted · Cura 2.3.1 time prediction on UM2+ display

For the record, the Cura time is pretty accurate

I'm just really curious why my printer display changes so much?


First the machine says 19 hours...


Then it goes to this?


...it eventually comes down. Maybe the raft in my print is throwing it off so much?

    OctoPrint does the same thing. It just takes the amount time taken to process the gcode data so far and estimates the time left based on amount of data left to process.

    Rafts print a lot slower and are mostly straight lines (very little gcode commands printing very slowly), so it thinks to process the rest of the print will be just as slow.

    After the rafts are done, print speeds up and commands become more frequent and complex, so the printer chews through them faster and the time estimate drops.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
