PrusaSlicer cost estimates

I might be missing something simple, but there’s something lacking when slicing on PrusaSlicer for the Sl1. If I slice for my mk3s, I get a cost estimate based on material used. If slicing for the sl1, whilst it estimates volume of material used, it doesn’t give a cost. It’s easy enough to work out manually, but it would be nice if it would do it automatically as for the mk3s. Chitubox has this feature, so it might be something I’ve missed in configuration?

For filaments, you have entered density and price per kilo in the filament profile. So the price can be calculated by volume. That's relatively accurate.

For resin profiles, there is no price per litre field (yet). Maybe it will be implemented later.

Thanks, I noted there was no way of entering resin prices, just wasn’t sure whether I had overlooked something

Resin cost calculation will be supported by the upcoming PrusaSlicer 2.2
