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?)
