Airtight Filament Storage

3dp_filament_box_full

PLA that has absorbed too much water will cause all sorts of problems with a typical 3D printer. Any moisture that has been absorbed into filament will eventually turn to steam once it is sent through the printer hot end…All you need is an inexpensive air tight plastic box, some teflon tubing that can feed the filament to the printer, and the 3D printable parts that Hall has uploaded to Thingiverse.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
