Posted · Command Line to get the volume after setting a particular infill density

Hello guys,

I've been using the GUI interface of Cura and I LOVE IT!!

I'm now trying to write a little script that will check the volume of an STL model AFTER having changed the Fill Density setting (to around 40%).

Could I use the Cura program in a command line setting so that I would get as the output the exact volume of the model? Like how many cm3 will my print use?

I would really appreciate any help!

Thanks a lot :-)

    Cura shows you the number of meters of filament used.

    I calculate this manually, for 2.85mm filament 1meter = 6.4cm3 (if i remember well).
