Add plastic used in real time during simulation...

It would be helpful to get a feel of the amount of plastic used in preview mode in real time. I always struggle with bits of filaments from a used spool, assuming you know what remains, having this figure placed on the right of the toolhead numerics would help us figure out when to pause a print inside the gcode file to perform a filament change more effectively and with less filament waste at the end.

Have a nice day,

Re: Add plastic used in real time during simulation...

Thanks for the great request. I've documented this for our developers. I'll keep watching this thread for more user ideas or simply to capture their +1's. Thanks again!
