Slicer Estimator - add accurate remaining time to print and other custom metadata to OctoPrint

Slicer Estimator - for an accurate remaining time to print and custom metadata in OctoPrint

With this plugin you can use the more accurate estimation of the slicer instead of OctoPrints estimations. So it will be very accurate, as the slicer created each command of the GCODE. Also it is possible to add custom metadata to the GCODE and make it visible in OctoPrints filelist or printer state view. For example the material the GCODE is created for becomes visible inside OctoPrint.

The default configuration matches the syntax of the following slicers, but you can change it in the plugins custom settings according your needs.

  • Cura
  • Cura M117
  • Simplify3D
  • PrusaSlicer

A more detailed description and manual is available on Github - the plugin’s homepage on the right.

More configurations can be added, please request additions via a Github issue.
