Add plastic used in real time during simulation...

Wed Jul 03, 2019 7:52 am

It would be helpful to get a feel of the amount of plastic used in preview mode in real time. I always struggle with bits of filaments from a used spool, assuming you know what remains, having this figure placed on the right of the toolhead numerics would help us figure out when to pause a print inside the gcode file to perform a filament change more effectively and with less filament waste at the end.

Have a nice day,

Thanks for the great request. I've documented this for our developers. I'll keep watching this thread for more user ideas or simply to capture their +1's. Thanks again!
