Thanks arhi for gcodestat, i tried it and compare to real print time, S3D says 29min, gcodestat 39min and real is 40min including heating. I will continue to test it on my future print but is a nice feature. I like the fact it computes only at saving step like this it does not affect the slicing time.

that's pretty accurate considering heating is not something I can guestimate :D

anyhow I created a separate topic for this so the info is aggregated and not spread trough topics around the forum

Great application. Finally, something that estimates time really close to the truth.
However, I am facing a little issue: the --alert box does not show.
Running the .bat from command prompt does work and displays the alert box, but the S3D is not displaying it.
Anyone having the same issue?

...edit gs.bat to be like this (this configuration does not upload file to octoprint, if you want to automatically upload to octoprint leave the api and url thing as original just change api and url values):

Code: Select all

@echo off

for %%a in (%1) do (
    set filepath=%%~dpa
    set filename=%%~na
    set extension=%%~xa
)   
set if=%filepath%%filename%%extension%
set of=%filepath%%filename%_M117%extension%

C:\gcodestat\gcodestat.exe --alert -d 0.02 -a 1000 --gcode="%if%" --output="%of%" 

save your profile and that's it...
It's not working for me yet. It looks like all you did is delete "--output="%of%" --api_key=AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA --api_url="http://octopi.local/api/files/local" from gs.bat. I tried leaving it in and deleting it to no avail.

I added the line "c:\gcodestat\gs.bat "[output_filepath]" to s3d's add'l terminal commands. Is there someplace else where I need to create a path that points to something?

It's working! Not sure what happened before, but I closed S3D, then noticed an icon in my task bar, opened it up and there was the print time pop up you referenced.

I reopened S3D, saved another print job and now the pop up is displayed every time. Not sure why it didn't come to the forefront the first time, but now it's working like a charm.

Wow, S3D gave me print time est of 2 hrs 46 minutes and your app is saying 4:07:45 so actual print time is 48% longer than the S3D estimate. That sucks pretty bad. I hope their up and coming (soon???) to be released update addresses this issue and uses your app or comes up w/ a homegrown solution that really works this time.

set the real acceleration value to the app to get more accurate estimate
