- How much of that precious paint / solvent will I need for the surface finish ? Only noobs ship un-finished 3D printed stuff, right ?
- How much metal will I need for casting the 3D object ?
Easily compute the surface area!With our product, calculating the area is as easy as writing getArea() !
How does this help me quote the price of my Thing ?Multiply the surface area by the approximate coat thickness and you have a good guesstimate of the volume of the finishing agent you are going to need. Multiply that by the cost / unit volume of the finishing agent. See, you get the point now
