Posted (edited) · How to Enable Print Cost Calculation in Cura?

I used to have print cost estimation enabled in Cura as you see in the screenshot, but I had to change PCs and now I can't find a way to configure this. I already set up material/filament weight and price in the Material settings and activated it, but Cura shows no cost calculation.

I already searched everywhere in both cura and the internets and I can't find a way. It's like it disappeared or I am going mental (So why I have an old screenshot for proof and my own sanity)

    My materials have been set correctly as well as my printer. All the settings are correct including the price ones in the material, it even shows me the cost per meter in materials, but Cura refuses to show price calculation.

    As you can see in the screenshot

    I have Cura 4.0.0 and to get the cost I have to hover the mouse over the black info ball.

    I've already put the total cost next to the filament length for 4.1 (you're not the first to ask for it!)

    If you want to bulk-enter the weight and cost fields, there's a neat little plugin to create a CSV file you can edit in your favorite spreadsheet application and import back into Cura:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
