Whats your longest completed print time on a bb?
Only around 5 hours. I'm wanting to print RichRap's BigBox tool holders, but they're estimated to take around 10 hours (and I expect they will take around 14 or 15.
About 12 hours (maxed out Tintin rocket)
I did a slew of 12 hourish prints of various molds. If layer 1 is good, the BigBox has been very reliable.
agree with @Ephemeris, especially large prints, if first layers are ok im fine with leaving the bb alone
also 8 hours lmao
Did you print a solid block of 300x200x300?
15 hours, although it failed due to it loosing position.
The S3D time estimates are way off. For that print it was supposed to be 10 hours, 50% more is just way off. I never believe what it tells me anymore, just like a politician...
Or Microsoft minutes
8 hours so far, i could not do more because I have to shut it off when I leave home, and also because I print relatively small technical parts.
I need to beat 260 hrs that my friend did on a um2+e !! Weighed about 1.5 kgs
As of Saturday,
That was a heavy print (5mm infill walls) for a PSU box for my old K8200 which I am upgrading to make it teenager safe for it's new owner. I upgraded it to 24V hot bed some time ago and the PSU has live exposed mains terminals.
So now adding all the boring stuff like correctly insulated and earthed wiring, fuses and enclosures before giving it to a new owner.
That seems to have been tweaked in the latest release...now it's sort of better (or worse) in that it's a variable estimate based on current progress rate through the print file. So at the start of the print it's wildly out, then from about a 3rd in it (sometimes) tells the truth There is a little indication next to the print that also tells you the confidence in the estimate.
At .25mm layer height I managed to print one side in 8 hours and the other in 6, Not sure how long it would take if you put both of them on the bed but with the first print of something I like to print them separately and hedge my bets
I have the latest release, unless they just did an update yesterday. Is the indication only shown when printing from the computer? I have only used the SD card so far for printing.
Yeh sorry just woken up and was talking nonsense...I was referring to the time estimate in octoprint I barely even look at the estimates that come out of S3D
Both won't fit on the bed at the same time, I tried for about 15 mins to fit them on there somehow. Unless you have them standing vertically Tetris style, which would be also a way to go I guess, but a lot of support would be needed.
