Ideamaker gcode data missing



  • Hi,
    any of you use ideamaker? unfortunately the gcode file it generates does not have some useful data for calculating the time and the layers, is there a way to get them or something to set on ideamaker? thank you all

    I tried to use ideamaker the other day and set it up and did a test print.
    That was the first thing I found that I wasn't getting any layer , filament or time data from it.
    But there is so many setting you need to check .



  • you can solve this rather easy by adding this

    ; layer_height={layer_height}
    ; Layer height={layer_height}
    ; layerHeight,{layer_height}
    ; layer_thickness_mm={layer_height}
    ; layerThickness={layer_height}
    

    to your template/gcode/start gcode. Duet will pick up the data from comment. Actually each of them is enough but I added them all for good measure 😄

  • @arhi I added the lines as you said, but the time calculations are still missing

  • that adds layer height .. estimates I never cared much about to see how to add them (if you run simulation on the file, right click, simulate) you will get that .. click on "add more" to see what other placeholders IM has to add to gcode but I don't remember I see any estimations there



  • Which version of firmware are you on?

    I have suffered this issue with multiple slicers but only after I updated to RRF3.1.1 on the older RRF-2 that provides me with the estimate even in ideamaker

    I'm on 3.1.1 and still have the same problem.

    I can see cura putting this information in the g code .

    ;FLAVOR:Marlin
    ;TIME:16870
    ;Filament used: 18.0931m
    ;Layer height: 0.28
    ;MINX:69
    ;MINY:148
    ;MINZ:0.28
    ;MAXX:281
    ;MAXY:246
    ;MAXZ:50.4
    ;POSTPROCESSED
    ;Generated with Cura_SteamEngine 4.7.1
    

    But can see that ideamaker is adding these variables TIME , Filament used , or find a way to add them myself.
    AND it's not showing a change in layers .



  • @peter247 said in Ideamaker gcode data missing:

    AND it's not showing a change in layers

    when you add to your start code in IM

    ; layer_height={layer_height}
    ; Layer height={layer_height}
    ; layerHeight,{layer_height}
    ; layer_thickness_mm={layer_height}
    ; layerThickness={layer_height}
    

    it will start showing change in layers

    as for filament used, time ... I did not find that in IM
