Placeholder Variable List Request

Does anybody have a placeholder variable list of all variables that can be used in Simplify 3D, for instance when a tool change occurs?

In particular I was wondering if there is such a variable available that contains the number amount of tool changes?

Thank you JoeJ.
I saw that post already. Unfortunately the answer to my question is not in there. Is there a COMPLETE list of all available variables?
Is there a variable that contains the amount of tool changes that have occurred?

Thank you

That is a complete list.

The variable you are asking for (the number of tool changes) does not exist.

I would also love to see a list of placeholder or drop in variables that S3D recognizes in my custom GCode.

More specifically, I am looking to add the following 2 lines to my beginning GCode script so my Ultimaker 2 displays the total run time and material used on the LCD before selecting the gcode file from the SD card.

;TIME: [total time in seconds]
;MATERIAL: [material used in mm]

Thank you!

Since nobody answered is there really no placeholder for total build time value that was calculated and material used?

;TIME: [total time in seconds]
;MATERIAL: [material used in mm]

There ARE other placeholders, but for some reason, there is significant resistance to making them public.

I've used a placeholder in the post-processing script that will give you the material used:

[total_filament_used] works in the post-processing area. I'm not sure if it works anywhere else.

I too would welcome a complete list!
