New 2.2 Kg spools from FormFutura

500m would be how many Kilos? In the Formfutura I like the fact that it is wrapped very "large" on the spool, so there should not be the "end of spool" problem, that you normally have with 750 gr spools.

Actually yours is very "long", not sure it would fit my spool holder. What is your setup with this spool to feed the filament?

A little bit more than 4 kilograms... :)

 

And I thought I was so cool with my miserable 2.2 Kg :)

 

You are. Because you're using it while I used just a few grams from that spool (lack of time...).

6.8kg or about 860m roll, cost is about 300$+shipping

Where did you get it? Does it fit the Ultimaker2 spoolholder on the back?

I love the turntable, and that whole setup. Nice machine! Does the heavy spool spin easily enough to feed without a problem?

I noticed Madesolid started offering 5 lb spools of a couple colors of PETG. Their prices are high though, so I haven't tried one yet.

Thank you Chrisw! It spins fine, however mind that I am using a spool holder with bearings

The Ultimaker top cover and bottom drawer are also from the same store, excellent well made stuff.

At the very beginning I had to re-put the filament on track as it had an inclination to slide out of the spool. This was during the first 15-30' of print. However I am now at 45 hours print (and still 5 hours to go), mostly unattended, for a big 3DHubs order and no problems at all. So I would indeed recommend these spools for the UM.

I got it off the re:3D store: http://shop.re3d.org/collections/3mm-filament/products/15lb-spool-of-3mm-high-quality-filament

I have not actually used the roll on a Ultimaker at all, but on a re:3D Gigabot XL: http://shop.re3d.org/collections/gigabot-3d/products/gigabot-bigger-volume ;)
