PolyBox™ Dry Box

Price: $89.95 inc GST

No doubt a 3D printers best friend, the PolyBox™ is an awesome accessory for any user. The majority of 3D printing filaments absorb moisture from the surrounding air which can significantly impact the quality of a 3D print. As the filament is extruded, moisture absorbed in the plastic will rapidly expand, boil and rupture, forming bubbles in the extruded plastic. These bubbles can have a significant impact on the surface quality, layer adhesion and mechanical performance of your 3D printed parts.

The PolyBox™ is a filament storage box that allows you to store materials in their optimum printing environment while still being able to print with them. With the PolyBox™, humidity is maintained below 15% to eliminate moisture problems and the product can house up to two 1kg spools simultaneously or one 3kg spool.
