Enter the weight of the printed object (grams) and the volume of filament used (mm^3) into the Filament Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Filament Density.

## Filament Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Filament Density.

FD = W / VF

• Where FD is the Filament Density (g/mm^3)
• W is the weight of the printed object (grams)
• VF is the volume of filament used (mm^3)

## How to Calculate Filament Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Filament Density.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the weight of the printed object (grams).
1. The weight of the printed object (grams) is given as: 20.
2. Next, determine the volume of filament used (mm^3).
1. The volume of filament used (mm^3) is provided as: 10.
3. Finally, calculate the Filament Density using the equation above:

FD = W / VF

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

FD = 20 / 10 = 2 (g/mm^3)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

weight of printed object (grams) = 19

volume of filament used (mm^3) = 431

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

FD = W / VF = ?
