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.

    https://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/M240.html

     

    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:

      • 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
