Print time estimation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print time estimation

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..

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
