Print time estimation

Recommended Posts

Good morning, I'm trying to figure out what are the lines of code that calculate time printing a piece using Cura 3.4, to estimate the cost of printing. I only want to put a printing cost based on the hours, minutes and seconds it takes to print a piece.
Could someone tell me what are the lines of code or mathematical equation used to calculate time?

Thank you

Since Cura is opensource, so you could just look around in the code and find it...or just can just use the time estimated and outputted in the top of each gcode file..

      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.
