Just had an idea that I’m surprised hasn’t been included in Cura yet. 

 

I know we can add a material cost to see what each print is going to cost us in filament but I thought it would be really great if I could use Cura to price up print jobs.

 

just by adding a few inputs we could have cura spit out a total print price. This could include things like filament mark up %, hourly rate, ect. Could get pretty extreme with what you want to base your price on but for me I generally charge a hourly rate plus materials with a mark up. 

 

I think this this would be a great feature to easily see what your cost price is and what your going to charge for a print.

    • "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.
