Material cost tools plugin

Recommended Posts

Posted · Material cost tools plugin

I have made a small plugin for Cura that will let you export material cost information for a list of materials to a CSV file. This file can be easily edited in a spreadsheet application, shared with other users, and imported back into Cura.

 

Price per roll and weight per roll information is not included with the XML file that defines a material in Cura; prices vary country-to-country and probably retailer-to-retailer too, and a single material may be available in different spool-sizes but still print with the same print settings. However, this leaves the material costing in Cura with a bit of a gap that a material manufacturer can not easily pass price information to its customers. With this plugin, they can.

 

The plugin is available from the Marketplace in Cura. Some more information can be found here:

The source of the plugin is available here:

Issues and feature requests can be posted here, or on the github issue queue for the plugin:
