Print Time vs Layer Height information


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Time vs Layer Height information

I was just wondering if there was a plugin or a certain way to get a quick print time on like 3 different layer heights instead of just changing the layer height and checking? It sure would be nice to get this info in the estimated time box when you hover over the i button.

    There is no easy way to get this I'm afraid. We would need to slice something 3 times in order to get that info, so that will take a fair bit of work to get that functional.

    Yeah I kinda figured, that's why I was wondering if there was a plugin that would help out. The parts I make aren't complex just functional so even tho it would be time consuming it would be nice to have a report on different common settings I change to either cut time or improve the part or a compromise between the two. Even though the parts I make aren't complex they do take quite some time to print. Sometimes I forget to change a setting when comparing the different versions too. I suppose I could just use custom profiles and test them individually. I'm sure for what I need they might get out of hand too. I'll figure out something. Thanks for the reply. ☺️

      • 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
