Posted · Adding temperature to gcode preview colour scheme

Just a small feature that most slicer do offer. when I installed the auto tower extension there was nothing i had to do to make a temp tower just select the model. in the gcode preview there is no colour scheme for temperature. no bid deal just opened the gcode file in notpad and ctrl + f to find m104 command to make sure it was actally changing temps. be nice to have this option in the colour scheme.

    Hey @Me_Tommie,

     

    Thanks for your report 👍


    Interesting feature request! I don't know why this is currently not an option.
    I can see that it has been deferred before https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/11432

    I'll have to ask the Cura team what they think. 🤔

    Hey @Me_Tommie,

     

    I brought up your suggestion to the team and it's trickier than expected. 
    We get this question most often for temperature towers, but there we would not able to display the temperature since it's added in a post processing script. Our researchers see some value in adding this information, but I don't believe will work on this anytime soon.

        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.
