Figuring resin use per print

Wondering just how you do this in ChiTuBox??

I see the page where you type in how much the resin costs and I did that, but I can't figure out where it tells you the print volume and cost per print.

When you slice it gives you this info, but that's all I've found when it comes to cost and volume. I haven't bothered to check its accuracy though.

Oh ok I was trying to find it on an already sliced model.

If it knows the volume and you enter in what you paid for a liter it should be pretty accurate right?

I just did 2 HOn30 gondolas side by side so they both print at once. Came out to $0.96 per print.

i know that with Cura, it's reasonably accurate on the part itself, less accurate when you add in the supports ....
and does the calculation based on weight / cost when it does a slice ..

Photon File Validator will give you cost per run and resin use per run on an already sliced model.

I see under the "information" tab, but all my info is blank.

I was just curious anyways. Like when I print 8 HOn30 trucks at once it costs me $0.48.
