Checking material used after printing

Recommended Posts

Hi all the good people out there :D

From my previous post, now I manage to print using my Ultimaker without any problem. The question now is, how do I check how many amount of filament used after I finished with printing job? :?: Much appreciated for the answers. Thank you in advance!

Not sure how to tell after you print, but I do know that if you look in the Cura generated GCode it will give you an estimate of how much it will use, really nice feature. Make sure that you put in your cost for the filament in the Cura preference’s, and then it will give you an estimated cost as well.

    • "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.
