    That is the best you can do. If the printer (the arduino) consumed all of the gcode. and compiled it down somehow then sure, a time remaining would be doable (but still a guess). It could 'learn' how to get more accurate over time :)

    I'm trying to install a smart controller like this I've installed the U8glib library, but I keep getting a compile error.
    sketch\dogm_lcd_implementation.h:38:0
    from \sketch\ultralcd.cpp:36:
    \sketch\dogm_font_data_marlin.h:171:25: fatal error: utility/u8g.h: No such file or directory
    #include <utility/u8g.h>
    compilation terminated
    Using library U8glib at version 1.18 in folder: C:\Users\William\Documents\Arduino\libraries\U8glib
    exit status 1
    Error compiling.

    This is giving me a hneadache. I seriously need some help with this.

    Did you install it from within the Arduino IDE. Sketch >> Include Library >> Manage Libraries >> U8glib >> Install? Lastly does it appear in Sketch >> Include Library >> Contributed Libraries?

    I've done all that, but I'm still getting compile errors.

    I went through this the last time I installed an LCD controller. One of the machines I have needs U8gLib and the other does not (not a full graphics LCD).

    Make sure you ONLY have the one LCD configured in CONFIGURATION.H if you have multiples it will be a conflict and thanks to Marlin it will be over this one header :).

    Given that I now have the DLP running marlin I keep all of my configuration.h files in separate folders named for the printers... then I merge them over when I need to load some changes.

    While researching Marlin 1.1.0, I originally had Ziggy's code included. Problem is that it made the firmware version a one off. Ziggy has not updated his code to support the current development effort and I don't want to own it either. It is of limited value, since it only dealt with the case of a USB connected printer. If you have a smart controller you really should create a personal "best practice" and print from the supplied SD Card reader, which already graphs the progress. So I dumped all his code and worked on getting the Configuration.h correct for the Robo.
