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?)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
