I am looking a buying a 3d printer for my robotics team and have chosen the Ultimaker 3 Extended. my question is since we will be doing a lot of printing and to constantly have to replace the 1kg spools would be a pain, what is the maximum weight that the spool holder can weigh on the Ultimaker 3 Extended. Thanks

    Don't know weight limit but you can put the spool on the floor. But it will take days to go through a 1kg spool. There are many things that are a "pain" with 3d printing and having only 1kg per spool is not one of them.

    I recommend you get high quality filament such as UM brand or colorFabb. Some of the cheap chinese filaments on ebay will cause you MUCH more pain than having to change spools every few days.
