Length of material estimate

Along with cost and time, I'd like to see the number of metres of material it will use. I'd like to see this to get an idea of how much of a reel I'm using.

@bigdaz Your estimate already includes the number of grams of material to be used. Since the SmartReel tracks in grams and most suppliers also provide the amount of material on a reel in grams, that is the preferred way for AutoMaker to provide an estimate. You can use the calculator below to get an idea of the length of filament used.
