Cura Post-Processing, Built in Timelapse [S5]

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Post-Processing, Built in Timelapse [S5]

Hello,

 

First time posting here. I've recently found the "time-lapse" setting within "Extensions" -> "Post-Processing" -> "Modify G-Code". I think this has been working successfully but I could not find where the file might be saving. I have been sending my files to the printer over network typically but also using the USB from time to time. Does anyone know how I may access this?

 

Thanks!

That script is not meant to be used with the S5 (or the UM3 or the S3). The S5 does not save timelapses anywhere with that script enabled.

Would you happen to know what it's meant for? Also, is there a more recommended script to be used?

I don't know what printers support the timelapse script. It was added here:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/pull/4353

It seems newer versions of Marlin support it in firmware.

There is no out of the box way to create timelapses with the Ultimaker 3 and newer. A community member once made a script for it:
