There have been many technological innovations. But only selective have been as revolutionary as 3D printer. It enables consumers to follow their own acquisition strategy. 3D printers has not only immersed into industrial design, footwear, engineering and construction, education but to medical application also. Although 3D printer is a great technological innovation, there still lays many problem, while operating with it. This paper focuses on the problem which is caused by 3D Printer filament. Filament is a very important and expensive part of 3D Printer. The filament is to be use carefully while printing an object in 3D Printer. This Paper will focuses on 3D Printer filament length monitor, which will update the user with the length of the filament, while printing and hence reduce the waste of filament by 90%.
