Any app to calculate costs?

Which Android app do you recommend to calculate the costs of the pieces?

I made this app for android. It doesn't have a bunch of bells and whistles , but it calculates basic costs. It also requires no special permissions and has no ads.

Print Cost Estimator app for android

I use octoprint to calculate cost, but it may be harder to use unless you actually print with it too. It also accounts for energy cost, which can be surprisingly high... the better half of cost depending on your machines usage and utility rates. The hardest part of getting accurate cost is energy... most folks don't have the tools needed to accurately estimate operating power, plus utility rates can fluctuate a lot.

Thanks, I used octoprint for a while but I ended up removing it because it failed in two very long impressions leaving the piece unusable. I'm going to try the app that apezam shared

Hi! I´m using this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paratiDev.imprime3D

It calculate the filament consumition, the energy cost and you can have an orientation view of the state of your filament spools.
