Filament Length & Weight


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament Length & Weight

You should tell us - don't be lazy please. Google it or start with this fact and you can do the math yourself:

PLA is 1.25 grams per cubic mm - please let us know how many grams per meter of 3mm filament.

    It was there in 15.02 and before. In the preference you could set the weight of filament and it would show you the mass in gram next to the filament length. Default was 1.2 in previous cura version like mentioned by Gr5.

    For the full length of a spool it depends on your filament diameter and the type of filament you use. Some are 1.2g/cm3 others 1.3 and some go up to 3.9 (bronze fill).

    If you use 2.85mm filament then there is 6.38 cm3 per meter of filament.

    Ha ha, in a bit of a bad mood Gr5  :)

    Looking at my last roll of colorfabb PLA it says 750 gram / 90 meters, so roughly 8,3 gram per meter...  XT black : 750 grams / 100 meters


    I think @gr5 needs that team @SandervG adds finally some stickers so we don't get the same questions every day :D

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
