# Filament Length Calculator

Are you involved in 3D printing or filament manufacturing? Use this Filament Length Calculator an easy to use and a handy tool for your project. Its very simple just enter the Filament Mass (g) Density (g/cm^{3}) Cross-Sectional Area (cm^{2}) in the calculator and get the Filament Length (cm) whiten a second.

### What is Filament Length?

The length of the filament is understood as the total amount for 3D printing. This dimension is essential when a preliminary estimation of the amount of remaining material can be of interest to realize whether it would be enough for the print job.

### Using Guide

Using the filament length calculator is simple. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

- Enter the
**Filament Mass (g)**into the calculator. - Input the
**Density (g/cm³)**. - Provide the
**Cross-Sectional Area (cm²)**. - The calculator will output the
**Filament Length (cm)**.

**Example:**

- Filament Mass: 500 g
- Density: 1.24 g/cm³
- Cross-Sectional Area: 0.05 cm²

### Formula

$\text{FL} = \frac{M}{D \times A}$

**Variables:**

Variable | Description |
---|---|

FL | Filament Length (cm) |

M | Filament Mass (g) |

D | Density (g/cm³) |

A | Cross-Sectional Area (cm²) |

### How to Calculate Filament Length

1: Identify the given values: Mass (M), Density (D), and Cross-Sectional Area (A).

2: Substitute the values into the formula.

3: Perform the division to get the length.

**Example Calculation:**

Given:

M = 500 g, D = 1.24 g/cm³, A = 0.05 cm²

Calculation:

$\text{FL} = \frac{500}{1.24 \times 0.05} \approx 8064.52 \text{ cm}$

### Input Examples

Basic Calculation | Advanced Calculation |
---|---|

Mass: 100 g |
Total Mass: 1500 g |

Density: 1.2 g/cm³ |
Average Density: 1.25 g/cm³ |

Cross-Sectional Area: 0.1 cm² |
Filament Diameter: 1.75 mm |

Filament Length: 833.33 cm |
Total Filament Length: 5417.68 cm |
