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.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
