Request: Custom Currency Units for material costs

Recommended Posts

Currently Materials in 'Preferences>Materials' can only have their Filament Cost listed is Euros. The same is the case for the 'Cost specification' info that is displayed when the user mouses over the bottom of the sidebar.

 

It would be nice if users had the ability to pick a currency of their choice. I'm located in the US and would like to enter the prices for the filaments I buy here. Seeing Euros there is just a bit odd.

 

This really doesn't need to be as complicated as doing any sort of conversion or whatever. Users already enter the cost themselves, so this is purely an aesthetic request that would just specify what currency symbol is displayed

 

I would really like an option to specify the Currency symbol myself, for example via a field in Preferences->General.

    • "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.
