Wrong time calculation

It's a long-standing and well-known bug in Cura, due to the fact that it's actually quite complicated to figure out how long a print will take, since the print head doesn't move at a constant speed but, rather, speeds up and slows down for (some) corners.

Daid has said in the last few days that he's working on improving it, so i expect there will be fixes in an upcoming release of Cura.

    Yes, next release (out next week if nothing goes wrong) will feature updated time estimates. Worst I had so far was that a print of 2 hours and 30 minutes was estimated as 2 hours and 40 minutes. Which is not too bad. The new estimate is usually pretty accurate or up to 10% worse then the actual printing time.

    Yes, it also effects the estimation of the UM2.
