Print Cost

Using this simple equation above, you can determine the price of a 3d printed part. This equation works best with one kilogram of filament material.

$40 x 110 / 1000 = $4.40

Filament cost represents the cost of a 1KG spool of filament, multiplied by the weight of the print in grams (110), divided by 1000 equals print cost.
Use this to calculate how much your prints cost or how much material you can save by recycling. A few 3d printing slicing software measures cost per print.
