If there’s one thing you need to learn before 2022 ends, it’s how to store your filaments properly. One of the most common problems that our customers experience is tangled filaments. While this can happen to 3D printers of any skill level, it is an entirely preventable issue.
Another thing that proper filament storage can prevent is filament bloating. With the summer bubbling up, humidity is at an all-time high and our filaments are at risk. The only way to prevent this is proper filament storage.
If filament problems are common for you, we’ve rounded up the best filament dryers and storage this 2022 to help you.
The Polybox elevates the typical airtight storage container with its thermo-hygrometer, a monitor that tells you the level of moisture inside the box. It also has large desiccant bags to absorb the moisture from the air inside the Polybox.
It was specially designed for Polymaker’s hygroscopic filaments, such as Nylon, PVA, and Polysmooth, but can also be used for filaments from other brands. It can house 2 1kg spools or a 3kg spool.
Sometimes, there is no simpler way to store your filaments than by using a vacuum-sealing bag. This pack contains five bags, a filament pump, 5 desiccants, and 2 sealing clips. Each bag has a measurement of 340*300mm.
