How to Measure Filament Left on a Spool

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.

Download the Plural_filament length and cost calculator by filling out the form below:
