Posted · saving time and material estimates with 3mf-file?

Hello,

is there any way to save printing time and material estimates in the 3mf-file?

When I have to print something again after some time, it'd be good to know how long the print will take and how much filament will be used. For that, I have to slice the job again, which is a bit annoying.

Thank you very much for any help.

    print_information = CuraApplication.getInstance().getPrintInformation()
    
    MAterial=0
    #   materialWeights
    for Mat in list(print_information.materialWeights):
    	MAterial=MAterial+Mat
    
    #   Print time
    P_Time = "%d d %d h %d mn"%(print_information.currentPrintTime.days,print_information.currentPrintTime.hours,print_information.currentPrintTime.minutes)

    Hello,

    thanks for the info, but I can't figure what to do with it. Where should I type this?

    Found the informations. Alas, they are in the g-code file, not in the 3mf:

     

    ;FLAVOR:Marlin
    ;TIME:78071
    ;Filament used: 63.3849m

    ;Layer height: 0.2
    ;MINX:9.815
    ;MINY:11.232
    ;MINZ:0.2
    ;MAXX:195.143
    ;MAXY:197.439
    ;MAXZ:34.8
    ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 4.6.1

     

    At the beginning of the g-code, TIME would be in seconds.
