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.
