Just a few ideas.

Posted · Just a few ideas.

Hi, I have been printing lots of small and large objects on my UM2 recently and it occurred to me that the Firmware is solid and works perfectly for me, however there was one thing I thought could be improved.

For example I love how during a print it gives you a time estimate which is SO useful, however id love to see a layer count, so current layer/total layers, it would give a more accurate time estimate for the user. It could be implemented by having the time estimate toggle between time and layer every few seconds. Just an idea but I think it would be a great improvement.

Thank you.

    I would like to see le layer number too!!

    Instead of the printing message, a "Printing layer XXXX" (On the ulticontrol, and In Cura for those who print from there)

    I am talking in an UM original,

    maybe this could be done by Gcode

    This could be done with a Cura plugin / Gcode for the Ulticontroller. Might be a bit more difficult for the print dialog.
