Cura Printing Time

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am a new user of CURA Software.

Regarding the printing time, does anybody knows how the Cura software calculate it?

I try to look at the programming code, but couldn´t find on how they calculate the time.

So, does anyone know the algorithm or the formula to calculate the printing time?

Thank you very much in advance

Hi Raymond,

Welcome to the forum,

The print time is calculated in CuraEngine. CuraEngine is the c++ slice engine used with Cura.

Try looking for when its writing "Print time:" result and track it backward in the code.

I can only give you the same info as I already gave you trough the support staff.

It's calculated with that code. That's the algorithm. It's a complex whole where that code calculates exactly what the firmware will do any how much time that will take.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
