Simplify 3D Print Time Remaining 100% Off

Post by w22 » Thu Oct 06, 2016 2:56 pm

Oddly enough, at 70 minutes, setting another timer manually, the manual timer is at 27 minutes. I have tons more timing logs that are completely off. Is this normal? I get estimated but at this point there shouldn't be a timer at all!

Yes, unfortunately it's normal, because the S3d timing estimate excludes travel time. For small prints (under an hour) plan on an additional 30% of time over the estimate shown. Mid size prints it's about 40-60% more time. Long prints take at least double. (Seems to be a geometric progression.)

One of the guys here did a much better time estimator program (I think it was jin) last year....it was about 90-95% accurate. I'm not sure where it is, but you could do a search.
