Can you describe how you plugin works. I added it in the plugins section of cura and I saw the plugin, I selected it and generated and saved the gcode but I did not find any M117 commands in the gcode apart from my start and end.

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

Hi! Pls check the development of Marlin - as I remember, there is already such a functionallity discussed, but I cant remember if already implemented and if it's valid for all kind of display sizes...

There is a progress bar on the RepRap Discount Full Graphic controller, but I have not seen anything on the UltiController...

hum, tried it the way he describes it "M117 at the end of the start gcode" but it does only display '0' here, anyway...

I updated (extremely simplified) it, it should do its work very fast now

btw... the marlin functionality does only work (if it does?!), when you print from sd card ;)
