Hi Zoev! At first, this plugin is unfortunately very very slow - i work on it to make it faster. It is based on an module i coded the last days and which is the bottleneck... but - it should work! if not, can you please go to "file" -> "show slice engine log" and tell me what error(s) you get (scroll down to the last lines)?

have you copied both .py files in the plugin directory? also evalGCODE.py?

and yes, it uses M117 commands as you already mentioned. it should normally calculate the total length which the printer hast to travel/print (depending on the given speed) and print an '#' every twentieth part

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
