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. ☺️
