UM3 - Total Run Time

Recommended Posts

I was trying to find a way to determine how many hours total my UM3 has been running.  I found the page where it says how much time each printer Core has been running, but unless I plug in each core, and make an estimate of which core was running while the other core was waiting....I don't have a good way of figuring out the total runtime.


I understand maybe this is not the most important piece of data to collect, but every other printer I have used has this information - so maybe I am missing something?


I use this printer for work purposes, so it would be somewhat useful to know total hours run its lifetime or from year to year for possible budgeting purposes, or convincing management that we use it alot, etc.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
