# How Much Stuff Can You 3D Print with 1 KG of Filament

Nowadays everyone has a 3D printer at home some 3d printers are more advanced and some are more for basic and less complex stuff, but a lot of people just load the filament in their 3d printer and forget about it because it takes so long to finish a single spool of 1KG! So today we will analyze and see how much we can print with 1 spool of filament.

## Filament Size

There are many different sizes of filament depending on the material but most are 1KG so we will use 1KG as our default size for the math.

## How Much You Can Actually Print with 1KG of Filament

To do this math we will use the Paris Tower and calculate approximately how many towers we could print with 1 spool of 1KG.

The following image shows on top left side the approximate weight of the finished part once printing is complete.

- Print time: 2 hours 32 minutes
- 6.30 Meters of filament
- 19 gram

## The math

So as you can see the tower will weight approximate 19g once complete so we just have to divide 1000g (1kg) by 19g

1000g / 19 = 52.6

We can print approximately 52 Paris towers with 1 KG of filament!

It would look like something below:

That is insane a lot of stuff to print!

If you decide to print everything hollow then you can probably multiple that value by 2 or 3 and most people probably print a lot of stuff with only around 20 to 25% percent infill because there’s not much difference on the appearance and it’s much faster to finish than using solid 100% infill.

Checkout the image below for some random 3D printed stuff. I did not make a math but I guess all the stuff below did not even use 100 grains of filament at all.

## Overview

You can print a lot of stuff with 1 single filament spool so just load it in your printer and forget about it 🙂
