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

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,
