How to get slicing info from the command line?

Hi there,

Is there any way to get slicing info (duration, cost, etc.) displayed by the GUI from the command line? I tried with prusa-slicer-console.exe with the --info option, but it only shows generic information about the model.

Best Answer by Yabber:

The information you are looking for is included in the gcode file as plain text.

You can use a command like find, or grep to search the file and display those lines on screen.

For example, on my Windows system typing the command:

find "total filament" toothbrush.gcode

will return:

---------- TOOTHBRUSH.GCODE
; total filament used [g] = 5.9
; total filament cost = 0.1

 

Or, on my Mac I can use:

grep "estimated" toothbrush.gcode

and it will show:

; estimated printing time (normal mode) = 28m 51s
; estimated printing time (silent mode) = 28m 57s
