Empty Spool Weight Database?

Post by Gwhite » Thu Mar 08, 2018 4:35 pm

I was wondering if there was a compendium of empty spool weights around, and found some online:

http://thrinter.com/empty-spool-weights/

https://www.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting/com ... remaining/

These appear to be copies of one another. However, the two recent data points I have for clear eSun PLA+ spools (216 grams & 226 grams) doesn't match up with their numbers (253 grams) by a fair amount. A variation of 37 grams could be a problem if you guess wrong. Using 253 grams for the spool weight would at least under-estimate the amount left.

Other than maintaining an up to date personal database for your favorite materials & vendors, does anyone know of a reliable source of info, or is this sort of variation the norm?

Thanks!

Thanks!
