Can you add a calculation of the cost of time per kilowatt per hour? Calculation only on materials is not correct

I can't see from your profile what Ultimaker you have so I'll share a few sources of information with you. In any case, you have to manually calculate this depending on how much you are charged for your electricity. Cura can not supply it.

For an Ultimaker 2(+) or Ultimaker Original with a heated bed you can check out this link: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/4042-electricity-consumption

For the Ultimaker 3 you can check out this link: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/36023-ultimaker-3-power-consumption

Good luck!

if you want to be complete you'll have to include a whole lot more... just thinking out loud;

- machine investment

- maintenance, spare parts

- man hours, preperation
