including power costs in print cost estimate?

Recommended Posts

Sometime I wonder what the electrical cost is for a print. Just one of those things that I really have no idea about. I am guessing it isn't a lot, but it might be a significant portion of the cost of highly quality prints of small objects.

Seems like it would be cool if Cura could make an estimate on the power consumed to make a print (at least for the UM models). Like filament, it could let you enter a cost per a kWh, (or whatever Europe uses on energy bills. calories?)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
