Loonsbury has created a Python script that calculates the costs of printing your designs in 3D at Shapeways. Even if you don't use Shapeways it's an interesting script because it'll calculate the volume of any closed surface. It comes with some nice features such as a manifold check (checks if the object has a closed surface), polygon counter and changeable material prices. More information on the Shapeways forum.
