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.

Nice dog ! Clever look. Wat is the race ?
This seems like a great idea, thank you.
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. ;-)

Instructions

- 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.
