Title: How much filament is on the spool? Will it be enough for my next 3D printing project?. Watch on youtube: https://youtu.be/8zs_Bx84P-k
It is so frustrating if we run out of the filament at 90% of 3D printing. We waste a lot of filament and time. In this video I am sharing all my experience and methods I know how to calculate how much filament we have on the spool and if it will be enough for our 3D printing project. If you know any additional useful method, please write it in the comment.
