What it is:
Finally! A reasonably priced and economical solution for filament handling. This cabinet features a 1mm thick steel construction with 3.2 cubic feet of humidity controlled storage space. Simply set your desired relative humidity level (as low as <1%) and enjoy a reliable way to keep your filaments performing optimally with no potential for moisture absorption. Includes 8 filament outlet ports (4 top, 4 rear) and a customizable spool holder system for printing directly from the cabinet! These units are able to actively dry "wet" spools by achieving incredibly low relative humidity levels. They are amazingly cheap to keep running 24/7 and don't bake the filament or use vacuum to do their job.
Why we love it:
Fighting moisture and protecting expensive filament is a hassle. A lot of us use a combination of plastic bags, cereal containers, storage totes full of desiccant that need dried periodically, ETC. Other products that aim to solve the problem are more expensive, but their effectiveness is sometimes questionable - even at higher price points. This system is roomy, proven, and has a very low operating cost. It's foot print also makes it a perfect candidate to be used in conjunction with an extrusion built stand that your favorite printer can sit on. Some printers can even sit directly on top of the cabinet.
--Room for 5 (1KG) filament spools on the adjustable spool holder. (Room for 2 additional spools underneath for storage)
--Print right from the cabinet through high quality filament outlet ports.
--Affordable to buy, and exponentially more affordable to run 24/7
--No direct heat or vacuum = no stress or degradation of materials.
--Investment protection. Specialty filaments are expensive. Keep them for years when stored properly.
--Recovers to set humidity threshold in minutes after door opening/closing.
--Use it as a printer stand! Get the look of the industrial printers and free up bench space.
