How many cubic cm is my object?

Recommended Posts

I wonder how to describe how many cubic cm a given part is which I wanted to print - is there any indication in Cura (or somewhere else)?

Usually you can check your part volume in the software, when you are designing the part

You can use the free "netfabb Studio Basic" software which can calculate the volume of an object.

If you're printing with pla, it's about 1,25g/cm3. Cura shows filament weight, so just calculate.

 

I thought it wouldn't be that heavy as water is only 1gm/cm3 so I sliced a 10mm cube at 100% and it gave a weight of 1gm

    • "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.
