Posted · layers and print time

is there a way to know what time in the print time a specific layer will be at?

 

I am embedding a magnet at a certain layer, 

it is a large print and it would be nice to know the exact time i would have to be there for the pause.

 

thanks,

Ryan

    Did you check your Gcode-files for information about time?

     

    ;FLAVOR:Marlin
    M117 Time Left 0h15m28s
    -
    M117 Time Left 0h13m44s
    ;TIME_ELAPSED:103.393496
    ;LAYER:2
    -
    M117 Time Left 0h13m00s
    ;TIME_ELAPSED:147.288543
    ;LAYER:3

     

    Total printing time 15m28s, after 1m43s layer 1 was finished and started with layer 2...

     

    Not sure if the TIME ELAPSED is standard in Gcode-file, if not, you can use post-processing script to put Remaining Time on LCD... like I have in all my files
