Cura 2.3.1 - Preferances, Materials

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

having recently installed the new Cura, I spent quite a while exploring the software and trying out the various new and re-imagined functions. I really liked the feature in version 15 that showed the projected cost of the part to print, and was encouraged that I could find the place to input the cost of the materials used. However, it is not as straightforward as I would have thought, and in fact it might not be possible, despite the settings appearing to be there. I've made a copy of a material, edited all the settings available, but the "Filament Cost", "Filament weight", "Filament length" and "Cost per Meter (approx) remain stubbornly un-editable.

How can I put these values in? Is there any way to edit these settings at the moment, or is this a partially implemented feature?

I hope there is a trick to this, or there is an expected update that will fix this issue?

Cheers,

Bill
