Roughly, what is the length of the filament on a 1kg spool?

Re: How Much Filament?

Or with some maths:

Density PLA: 1.25 g/cm3 = 0.00125 g/mm3
Filament: d=1.75mm
mass=1000g
L= ? mm
mass=Density * volume
mass=(Density*L*pi*d*d)/4
L=4*mass/(Density*pi*d*d)
L=4*1000/(0.00125*pi*1.75*1.75) = 332770mm =~ 333m.
