cura and weight

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Some time ago I had a cura version (can't remember which one) that included info on the weight of the piece.

I can't seem to find it on the newer versions though. Is there a way to see this info some way?

I'm planning to make some other pieces with a fixed weight.

The weight did show in all versions of legacy Cura, and have not been visible in any version of Cura 2, but it is back now with the 2.3 Beta version released the other day.

Hmmm.... would be great to have it also in the gcode file similar as in the old versions.

I saw some setting information at the end of the gcode, but there is this info not included... :-(

Maybe there is a quick hack for this available...? :-)

:-( ok, but I slice it for UMO...

Additional info in the gcode for reading it with e.g. the editor might be good as you can quickcheck "older" files regarding needed material quantity or print time (e.g. for making offers...) when produced again...

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
