The cost of the print on Creatr HS

Hi all!

I want to ask how do you estimate the cost of the print on your printer? It is clear for the filament - just put the price in S3D and voila! But how is printing time corresponding to energy consumption?

I just measured what the energy consumption was for the printer for our CO2 summary. It took like 13hours of printing. 

Note: There is also a laptop connected to that device.
