Layer timestamp

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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
