"Time Display" on UltiController is wrong

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a Solution to get back the Time an Object has to finish printing an Item. The UltiController shows the Time since printing was started, not the Time used to finish a Job. How do we change this Behaviour? Is this a Problem of the Marlin Firmware or is there a Setting in the UltiController I don't know?

I used the Time displayed to know when I have to get the finished Parts off the Bed and start a new Print. (Helpful for long Printjobs over Night)

Any Help is welcome...

I think he wants "time left till print is done", but currently the controller does not know this. It can guess it, but it will be off. (It could take the time already printed, and how far it is in the file, and extrapolate the final time from that)

I just have one Time displayed on the right Side and it continues to "count up"... The Time I'm interested is how long a Job took to finish. What I remember is that earlyer the Time displayed stopped after finishing a Job. Now it continues to count up Time. Normally, when I start a Job, I want to know how long I can leave the Ultimaker allone and when I have to return to remove the printed Item and start a new Job. It's helpful when printing a Job over Night. I dont have another Time displayed on the UltiController. The Bottom Line (4) just displays Status Messages. Maybe I miss something?

I have started a new Testprint to see what's on the Display after the Job finished.

Daid: I observed a Phenomen that makes some Prints very weak. The Infill is following the outer Contour instead of using a fixed Basepoint. On some Prints, especially some with an Angle of about 45°, the Infill is very weak. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:139087

    • 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.
