material cost in 2.3.1

In the previous versions of Cura (15.6), in Preferences you could fill in the material cost .

Than Cura gave you an approximate cost of the 3d printed object.

Is it still possible to fill in the material cost in the new version of Cura (2.3.1), ? I can't find it.

    As a work around, if you have your cost per kilogram, you can just take the grams estimate from Cura and do the math yourself. $/kg / 1000 * grams = $ for print.

    It is cost per meter that is the harder math because you need the right density number for your plastic. But weight is easy.

    Still, it would be nice if Cura 2 did it for you like Cura 15 did.

    Hope this helps! :)
