I weigh my empty filament spools so I can figure out how much filament that I have on a partially used spool.
When I know the weight of an empty spool, I weigh the partially used spool, subtract the weight of the empty spool, and get how much filament I have left (minus the amount that needs to remain in the bowden tube). This allows me to start a print knowing that I won’t have to watch it and try to replace the roll before it runs out.
So far I’ve mostly used CCTREE filament, so I only have empty spools for that brand of filament.
A CCTREE filament spool weighs 111 grams.
Does anyone have the following empty spools that they could weigh?
- the small spool that comes with a CR-10
- AMZ3D spool
- MG Chemicals spool
