Time sheduled or shifted 3D Print with Cura?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Time sheduled or shifted 3D Print with Cura?

We have an Ultimaker 3 - 3D Printer in our office. Since it is quite noisy we normally do the prints for prototyping overnight.

 

Is there a possible to time shedule prints?

 

At the moment I prepare the prints, start the print and press pause. When I leave the office I often forget to unpause the print.

We don't have a solution to do this. It's possible to automate this by using the API and creating a script that automatically calls the resume on a printer, but this requires scripting on your end.

If only Cura Connect were open source, someone could implement functionality like this...

@nallath This might be an interesting Cura Connect feature in the future?

 

@GeheimratEcke , do you have a superquiet office where everybody is heavily concentrating or is there a special thing on the printer you consider to be very noisy?

Only if. Only if.

We mostly figured it out the other way around. During office hours you want small prints to be done because then you can minimize the waiting time (because there is someone to remove the print).
