Layer slider indicator

Recommended Posts

Posted · Layer slider indicator

Hi All

Just received my UMS5 and have run a few small/medium sized jobs with quiet a few problems along the way, but that's a different topic.

My question is ... Where on the machine or software does it indicate the current layer its printing?

In the Preview window of Cura 4.4 the vertical slider shows every layer, however once you start printing you only get a percentage of total job completed

Am I missing something or what??

Hi NovaStar, 

 

As far as I know there is no layer indicator on the printer. Would be a nice improvement though.

Thanks Framar, I kept looking and didn't find that info anywhere.

My Form2 indicates layer -- of -- right on the display and is a great feature. Although th UMS5 reads out time remaining for the job ..

Not even Cura tells you that info, just gives a percentage of job completed but no current layer

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub.
