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,

      • 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
