Material Cost per MM^3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Material Cost per MM^3

I'm trying to double check my math here. So material from Ulitmaker is $31.50 EUR for 90 meters of 2.85mm thickness.

So does that mean the cost per mm^3 is $0.000054 EUR? Which would put a 10,000 mm^3 part at $0.54 EUR? Does that sound right?

I use mm^3 because you can check your g-code for how many mm^3 of material you are using to get an accurate cost/part.

If you put your material cost into the preferences section of Cura, it does this for you for each print.

Cura's auto calculations haven't seemed to be that reliable. I've changed my density on some products and the material usage didn't change at all. I'm just trying to get the manual way down so it's actually rock solid info I'm relying on.

Says so on the flyer and website:

 

  • Usage cost: ~ €0.05 / cm3 (material and power)
