How much filament?

I'm wondering how much stuff you can print with say 2 kg of 1.75mm abs filament. When I look to order the filament, it just mentions the weight and it's very hard to judge how much I need to buy.

DW660 Questions

This question is a bit out there, but does anybody have a picture of what the inside of the DW660 looks like? Secondly, does anybody know the diameters of the bearings that are used inside the tool and the distance that the two bearings are separated? I ask because I'm working on, what I think, is a...

Re: Pololu Pot Tweaking?

This may seem like a dumb question, but when you are adjusting the drivers, should EVERYTHING be plugged in; all motors, power from power supply, and power from the computer to the arduino?

Re: Uploading Grbl

...Another good test would be to connect to your arduino and type $ into a terminal. If it spits back some config settings, then you're good to go! -Edward I'm trying to do this, but it doesn't seem to work, probably user error. Can you tell me how I should connect to a terminal? Also, just to make...

Re: Uploading Grbl

Edward, I think your solution worked. Can you confirm how many bytes should be loaded onto the arduino? My xloader window show that 21738 bytes have been loaded. If this is correct, I think we should change the wiki to state that the baud rate for an arduino uno should be 115200 instead of 57600 lik...
