Weight of an empty spool


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Weight of an empty spool

I'm planning for my first multi-day print. I'd like to weight my spools and subtract the empty weight to find out which one still has enough material on it.

If someone has an empty spool at hand and could weight it for me, that would be awesome!

Edit: Spools are the 750g ones from the Ultimaker shop.

Many thanks,

    Hi Gregor,

    Many thanks!

    I should have mentioned that I have 750g spools from the UM shop.

    Following the reference from your blog, I've found a different, but similar spool for 750g with an empty weight of 220g. (link).

    Still, of someone happens to have an empty 750g spool from UM around, that would be great.
