The packages of 65lb cardstock I buy also have 176gsm as the weight. That matches the information found in the Cover stock column on the chart I use.

I have checked out the various inputs on that chart with calipers and what is on the labels of the other cardstock I buy. So far it has been a match between what is on the chart and what is on the cardstock labels for all of the other weights of cardstock I have purchased.

Thanks for the information

Because I live in the US, any card stock that I buy is not sold by GSM, but rather a weight so I am not very familiar with anything else. I use 65 pound card stock. Using an online converter I believe that equals 176 GSM, maybe someone else can help us with this. I think a lot depends on the type of paper (cover stock, card stock, etc). Since I only buy the 65 pound card stock, I don't have to personally worry about these things.

There are a lot of small parts and rolling of tubes/surfaces and the 65 pound cardstock works very well for me. I find that if you use a lighter (thinner) paper, the model crushes easily and does not provide enough support. If you use a heavier (thicker) paper, the small parts are hard to form and the tubes do not roll easily.

Bet to you and thank you for choosing my Enterprise model to build.

Goodnight. Mr. Caudillo, did you receive my PM?
