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.
