Filament Dry Storage Print

July 22, 2021

Wednesday July 21, 2021 – Finished up the first of four filament dry storage boxes today. Filament degrades as it absorbs moisture from the air. Even in a New England basement the humidity level has been in teh mid 40% range. This box took the humidity from 44% to 10% in just a couple hours! This will allow us to have multiple color options to print with without worrying about how fast we use them. This print utilizes dual rollers for the spool that are assisted by skateboard bearings, as well as a silica tray that uses “rechargeable” silica to pull the moisture out of the air.
