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...

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
