Weight of an empty spool

Recommended Posts

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,

Stefan

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
