“Do you have enough filament?” Fabbaloo asked yesterday. When a 3D job loads for the weekend, there is always the concern that it might run out in the middle of a print. Plural Additive Manufacturing came up with a helpful tool: a quick, rough estimation spreadsheet. The Excel spreadsheet includes a list of materials, the material densities, average empty spool weight, and cost per cubic centimeter (cc) if desired.
Note: average empty spool weight is one source of variation. It’s not perfect, but this spreadsheet lets you know when the spool is getting close to empty.
