What time is my print finished?

Recommended Posts


Because I use my UM3 extended on my work daily. It is a constant puzzle to schedule prints between working hours and over night.


Office hours 8:30 - 17:00

8:30 print from previous night is finished.

9:23 prepare new print for the working day.

the new print takes 7:49 to complete.

17:12 print is finished

17:35 starting new print

How much I love to work over times, it is just a pain in the ass to not be able to see what time my print is finished, instead of seeing how much time it takes to print a part.

Other examples:

current time: 10:28

print time 6:35

finished: ??????

current time: 16:28

print time 19:35

finished: ??????

current time: 14:13

print time 19:35

finished: ??????

current time: 10:28

print time 1d 12h:33

finished: ??????

Good luck calculating print times.

Perhaps have a look at the new Cura connect feature!

you probably already have it on your printer... (you also asked about the pre-heat, I think this means you have firmware version 4.0.1 or up)

Because it tells you this with at-least some amount of accuracy on the webUI running on the printer and on the monitor tab in Cura.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
