How much PLA do I need for 3D printing?

The amount of filament you will need in general – Basically, anything short of a full-blown project. In this case, most 3D prints would not exceed 50 grams of filament (PLA). You can easily get away with keeping 2 or 3 spools of 1KG filament on-hand.

How much 3D filament do you need?

The amount of filament you will need in general – You can easily get away with keeping 2 or 3 spools of 1KG filament on-hand. If you use a 3D printer capable of printing with 2 or 3 filaments at the same time, then your requirement would also increase accordingly.
