What 2 Do w/End Pieces

Recommended Posts

Posted · What 2 Do w/End Pieces

Hi, 

 

I keep ending up with pieces of less than 1m length filament on my spools.  I would like to use them for more printing.  What is out there to help make them useful?  

 

Another idea is why can't CURA tell me how long of a filament piece do I need to print things?  IF I had a note on CURA screen telling me I only need 80cm to print I could stop throwing away good filament.

Cura does give that information.  After slicing, mouse over the little "i" icon immediately to the right of the time.  It will tell you that info and more.

Oh wow, is that one of the Cura 4 interface "improvements"? Because up to 3.6, after slicing it displays filament length and grams of filament immediately. 

 

Way to go, @Ultimaker - making the interface as stupid as possible, seemingly.
