Interpreting pronterface filament usage - mike - 06-29-2013 07:43 PM

Does anyone happen to know the meaning of this output by pronterface:

"61490.9732 mm of filament used in this print"

Safely assume I'm printing on a Polyprinter, using 1.75mm ABS, and a 0.35 extruder nozzle. Does this mean 61490.9732 mm of 1.75 mm filament or 61490.9732 mm of 0.35mm filament? Or 61490.9732 cubed mm of ABS?

Did I really print 201.7 feet of 1.75mm filament, or just 201.7 feet of 0.35mm filament?

This should be the actual mm of 1.75mm of filament fed in, from the spool, so 61 meters.
