How much does 1kg of filament cost?

One factor that many forget about when calculating the cost of the filament is wasted time and materials. Yes, you can get a 1kg spool of no-name filament for $20 – a cost of $0.020/gram.

How much is in a 1kg spool of filament?

1.75 mm filament length for 1 kg spool: ~ 330 meters / ~ 1080 feet.

Is 1KG of filament a lot?

Some extra perspective, you could print around 400 average sized chess pieces with a 1KG spool of filament. If you measure how long your 3D printer filament lasts in printing hours, I’d say on average you could get around 50 printing hours.

How much does a roll of filament cost?

3D-Fuel spools of Standard PLA are loaded with a full 1000 grams of filament for $29.99 – a cost of $. 029/gram. That’s less expensive per gram than both MakerBot and ColorFabb filament.

What should I charge for 3D printing?

For an hour of 3D printing time, the amount of filament used would be 15.6 gm (=0.26 x 60 min). This gives us the filament cost of 94 cents per hour of 3D printing (=15.6 gm x 6 cents). So, for the cost-recovery of filament only, I get roughly $1 per hour of 3D printing time.

How much PLA is on a 1kg roll?

Based on our calculations, around 335 meters of filament in a 1-kilogram spool of PLA filament with a diameter of 1.75 millimeters.

How do you weigh a filament?

How long will a 3D print last?

How Many Printing Hours Does a 3D Printer Last For? It’s difficult to give a specific value for lifetime hours for a 3D printer but based on my research from reading user experiences, I’d give a range of 7,500 printing hours to 15,000 printing hours (printing for 4 hours everyday for 10 years).

How many prints are in a roll of filament?

One roll of filament will print approximately 200 keychains.

How can you tell how much filament is left?

How much filament does a Benchy take?

Benchy takes about 13g of filament on my set up. If you use a standard 1KG spool of material, you could make 153 boats.
