Paneldue shows strange Values for Time, Layers and Filament



  • Hi there,

    My Paneldue V1.17 and Duet/Ethernet 1.19 are having a nice time telling me stories. All values are given in hours and minutes?
    Is that normal or do I have to initialize the units which I want to be displayed. could not find anybody or hint who experience that.
    For clarification here is a screenshot:

    My questions are obvious now:
    Is that something I can fix with S3D or Duet/Ethernet? (I hope so)
    Do I have to fix it on Paneldue Firmware? (I guess so)
    Do I have to live with that? -> indexes -> Why? (I don't think so)

    Anyway, maybe a noob beginner, user too stupid error?

    all the best

    PS: if you look at the image at full size -> YES, it was I guess one of my first prints, before I even ordered Paneldue -> where ->thingiverse.com -> search for LM

    Yes the time estimates are in hours and minutes, that's what the h and m stand for. Is that a problem?

    well I was talking about the filament and layers, they are also estimated in h(ours) and m(inutes) please explain?
    In that case, if you look at the image given in the first post: I will have 9h and 31minutes in layers left -> what is that supposed to mean?

    all the best

    PanelDue provides 3 estimates of how much longer the print will take, just like the web interface. One is based on the layer count, another is based on what proportion of the file has been processed, and one is based on what proportion of the total filament needed has been consumed. So in your image, the estimate based on the layer count was 9 hours 31 minutes.

    The estimate based on filament is usually the most accurate,

So in your image, the estimate based on the later count was 9 hours 31 minutes.

    After searching, I finally found this thread. Please add this information to the wiki. The display is really confusing otherwise. (I was trying to figure out why a single layer would take almost as long as the entire print, and how filament was being measured in minutes/seconds.)
