saving time and material estimates with 3mf-file?

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.

Currently? Nope. I do think this will be something that we will add, but i wouldn't count on it any time soon.

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.
