Posted · Layer timestamp

hi, i have model with several cavities, where i allways stop the print by script (extensions->post processing->modify G code-> stop at height), manualy insert magnet into it, and continue printing.
point is, that i dont know WHEN the stop will ocure. I know layer number, but im unable to read from CURA information about what time will be the layer printed. 

 

so my question is, if there is such information, so i can better plan the print (for example, so the pause will not be 4AM ;)

 

logically, the information must have CURA available, if there is total time printed, and the time is +- accurate.

    That information is in the gcode in the form of a comment that appears at the end of each layer that looks like this:

     

    ;TIME_ELAPSED:1783.656278

     

    Maybe someone can write a plugin that will display the elapsed time for a given layer (or layers)?

    gcode is easier to read than you might think at first.  Use a simple text editor and search for "time_elapsed".  You'll see the Z height and I think maybe the layer number within a few lines of this line.
