I happen to be helping on a (research) project where material consumption and weight are of key consideration to a research paper. Knowing (exact) material consumption of both object and support independently would have been useful. Also, estimated weight. Can this be added to Preform? Rough calculations can of course be computed, but I just thought it might be nice to click into Volume and get more stats. Anyways, not a big deal. This is not a typical “print this” project. There are a lot of iterations on various objects to test their geometric features.
More info would be nice here (above)
Going on this same train of thought … it might be useful to (some users?) have a link to material properties of resins? I know the bottom nav is very clean, but perhaps it can be put somewhere? It’s easy enough to look up, but maybe it could be easier … maybe it belongs in the “print setup” dialog? In particular to this project, an approx range of tensile strength would have been useful at a glance.
