OctoPrint Spool Manager - Filament Calc Spreadsheet

I feel like OctoPrint should be able to at least offer to calculate most of this for you. Maybe I should help with the project... In any case, I made a spreadsheet to assist in calculating the data to fill in to the OctoPrint spool manager plugin. Hopefully this link works, you'll have to copy it to your own Google Drive to use it, or download the attached Excel sheet.

Usage is pretty simple. Drop down boxes let you select filament manufacturer, filament type, and diameter. Enter in the current mass of the filament and the spool and the original mass of the filament. It spits out the the original, used, and remaining filament length, and the used filament mass. Basically everything I want entered into OctoPrint's Spool Manager.

The second tab of the spreadsheet can be modified to tweak the data if you don't like something I've entered.

You're a lot more likely to get uptake on this if you post to the OctoPrint forums. The OctoPrint developer (Gina) is very active there. They welcome contributions.
