What time is my print finished?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · What time is my print finished?

Hi,

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

Example:

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.

    I think indeed the new Cura Connect will be perfect for this situation. Prepare all the prints and send them all together to the printer. Then you only have to pick up the prints between prints. And on top it tells the time of the expected finish :-)
