Scuba Airtight Black Boxes The Perfect Storage for your 3D Printer Filaments

3D printing is becoming THE thing for businesses and even for personal use – as it provides a fast and convenient way to create three-dimensional images. With various filaments available, 3D printers are a cost-efficient way of printing compared with traditional machining.

3D prints can be affected by the humidity that is contained within the filament. Invisible to the naked eye, it is possible that you may have attributed poor quality prints to other more obvious factors, such as your settings… when all along the culprit was a humid filament - they have an inherent quality that will make them attract water molecules from their surroundings.

Although there have been various attempts at 3D filament storage solutions, most are either too bulky, too slow or they consume too much energy. Well not this one! Ultimately, filaments need to be stored in a sealed box otherwise they will attract water from the air – this will cause brittleness, diameter augmentation, bubbling, degradation, breakages, etc. All or any of these issues will inevitably cause complications during the printing process, although the degree to which the filament is affected will greatly depend on its type.

Solent Plastics has the perfect plastic storage solution.
