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.

    • 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.
