3D Print Time Calculation Set Up

Phanes 3DP just released 3D Print Time Calculation. This feature is only available to premium subscribers, therefore if you are basic subscriber then you will need to upgrade. Below is a simple instructional to get your print time calculation set up.

3D Print Time Calculation equation is based on slicer equations, therefore its as accurate as possible. We did everything we could to make the 3D Print Time as accurate as possible. Therefore, please test accordingly to ensure your pricing is accurate. We strive to make improvements with this feature from suggestions from our active users. The default infill is 20%, in 2019 we will have an infill adjuster to accommodate different tastes of your customers/clients.

Step 3: Click On Add New and fill out your 3D Printer settings. You can add as many 3D Printer Profiles, as each printer profile will be displayed on the front end widget. Make sure you input the hourly rate, print speed, and print quality. NOTE: You can have the same 3D Printer with different profiles that have different print speeds, and pricing. For 3D Print Time Calculation purposes only, print speed, pricing, and quality is only needed. Other information in the settings form will be used for further upgrades for 2019.

Step 4: Associate your materials with your 3D Printer Profile. Even if you will not charge extra for material cost, your customer/merchant will still have a choice of whatever material they want used for their 3D Prints. Just go to Materials and accomplish this task.

Step 5: Go to settings and activate Print Service Cost. If you wish to charge extra for materials, then activate that feature. You can charge by volume or density. Deactivating density will allow for material volume charge where you can set rates in the Materials Tab.
