command line cura.py --slice generates gcode Without print time

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I love Cura but as I am printing many objects, I am trying to make the slicing process more automatic.

I am considering using the very nice curaEngine directly, bu I still do not really checked how it gets all the parameters in command line.


./CuraEngine -v -s print-temperature=220 layer-height=0.1 -o ultifoot.gcode ultifoot.stl

Then I succeeded using the Cura.py --slice option :


/cura.py -i /home/jb/curaProfile.ini -s /home/jb/CuraEngine/ultifoot.stl

It works fine (&fast) but the resulting gcode does not contains the print time. It should look like a minor issue but Time is a quite interesting information :) :


Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 13.11.2
M109 T0 S210.000000
T0
;Basic settings: Layer height: 0.1 Walls: 1.05 Fill: 30
;Print time: #P_TIME#
;Filament used: #F_AMNT#m #F_WGHT#g
;Filament cost: #F_COST#

Maybe I did something wrong ?

Thx & best regards,

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
