Estimate print time in CURA (3.4.1)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Estimate print time in CURA (3.4.1)

Hi everyone,

Just completed a large and long print job (for me anyway) with multiple parts. 

I noted the estimated print time when I sliced the parts and then the actual print time from the printer when the parts completed.  CURA used to be rather inaccurate for estimating print times but 3.4.1 appears to have improved a LOT.

On average, over 34 components, raging in time (actual) from 11 min to 4h37m the difference was 8% low.  The greatest error was for the short print times, that 11min print was estimated at 4min (175% difference) while the 4h37m print was out by only 3% (all estimates were low).

I think this is a great improvement and the estimates now give a workable estimate of the print time.

Hope this helps others.

Best,

Eric
