This is a simple 50 x 20 x 10 mm block which is 10 cubic centimeters in volume. It makes it perfect for calibration and measuring plastic filament consumption.
In other words $/cm3.
By Creative Tools


  • Make sure to measure the average diameter of your 3D printers filament
  • Adjust the 3D printers software according to the diamter
  • 3D print the object at 100% infill
  • Weigh the final result on an accurate scale
  • Divide the weight by ten
  • Now you have an accurate weight per 1 cubic centimeter which makes it possible to calculate the cost per cm3.

This seems like a great idea, thank you.

Unfortunately my UP doesnt print at 100% infill, even though they have a 'Solid' option, it still prints a slightly hollow grid.  I discussed this with the manufacturer and hopefully they will change it. When they said it was a waste of plastic,  I explained to them that sometimes you want an actual 100% infill for strength of structural parts.

PS (Gratitual Use of Puppys Pics to get Votes should be Banned)  haha.

Hehe... my first idea was to take a simple photo of the 3D printed part. I placed it on my table and went away to get my camera. When I came back the part was missing! I finally found the culprate and caught him on camera. ;-)

Nice dog ! Clever look. Wat is the race ?
