From Filament weight to part weight


Recommended Posts

Posted · From Filament weight to part weight

Hi all,


have anyone of you experimented, what percentage of the used filament weight stays in the part?


It for sure probably depends on:


-other volatile additives depending on the filament manufacturer

-moisture depending on climate and storage (this shuld has the highest impact (?))


But i'll be grateful to get some info (especially for PLA)
