A nice storage container for filament

Recommended Posts

I found this storage container at MTM Case-Guard.  It is a perfect fit for 8" reels of material once you pull out the foam insert.  It has an o-ring seal to keep moisture out.  They also make one without the insert but it is army green colored and I'm not a fan.

I am using EXMAX® Reusable silica Gel Desiccant to keep the reels dry.  

The little balls of silica gel turn from blue to red when they absorb moisture and they are re-usable if you throw them in the microwave to drive the absorbed moisture out.  The only down-side is the crummy plastic case they use.  I will print something up that is more durable and can take the microwave heat.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
