Say Goodbye to Moisture Problems: Dry Your PLA Filament with our Advanced Drying System
PLA filament is a popular choice for 3D printing because it's easy to use and produces strong, durable parts. But PLA can also be tricky to dry properly, which can lead to problems.
PLA has a tendency to absorb moisture from the air, which can leave your filament with a sticky coating that will make it unusable. This coating also makes it more likely that your printed part will warp during the process or even crack as it dries.
To avoid these issues, you need to dry your PLA filament quickly after printing so that the excess moisture is removed before any damage occurs.
With our advanced drying system, you can dry PLA filament in only a few hours.
Our filament is packaged in an oxygen-free bag, which prevents moisture from getting in. We also add a desiccant to absorb any moisture that might still be present. This combination of packaging and drying agents helps ensure that your filament is ready to use as soon as you get it.
What Is A PLA?
PLA is a bio-degradable polymer made from renewable resources such as corn or sugar cane. It is commonly used for 3D printing due to its high strength, low cost and biodegradability. PLA is also one of the first plastics used in 3D printing and is one of the most common types of filament available today.
PLA Filament: What You Need To Know
PLA Filament is a very popular material used to 3D print objects with your 3D printer. PLA has many advantages over other materials, including:
Cost Effective - Much cheaper than other plastic materials like ABS, but still offers excellent print quality and strength.
Low Odor - Unlike ABS which has a strong odor when melted, PLA produces very little odor when being heated up. This makes it ideal for indoor use as you won't have to worry about having an open window/door while using your 3D printer as you would with other plastics that produce more fumes when melting
PLA has some great properties: it's strong, tough and has high resistance to impact damage. It can also be used for food packaging and medical devices because it doesn't have any toxic chemicals.
PLA has some disadvantages too; it isn't as strong as ABS and its melting temperature is lower than ABS, so you need to watch out for warping when printing large parts or parts with overhangs.
If you notice any moisture on the outside of your spool or inside of your packaging, then it's likely that your filament needs to be dried before printing.
Moisture causes a number of issues with 3D printing including:
Poor print quality. You'll notice this right away as drooping or sagging in the middle of your print. The filament will also have an uneven surface finish and may even start to peel apart while printing.
Slower extrusion speed due to viscosity (thickness). This can cause a delay in your prints as well as additional wear on your extrusive system.
The Easiest Way to Dry 3D Printer Filament
With our advanced drying system, you can dry your filament quickly. The system is designed to ensure that the filament is evenly dried and ready for printing.
How Do You Dry Filament And Keep It Dry?
Our advanced drying system allows you to dry your filament in the shortest time possible. We have a proprietary system that allows us to dry our filament at the right temperature, humidity and length of time. There are many factors that affect how long it takes to dry PLA filament: length, diameter, number of coils and moisture levels.
How To Dry 3D Printing Filament:
Now that you've found the perfect 3D printer filament, it's time to get to work. However, before you can print your first object, you must dry the filament.
Drying your PLA filament is necessary because water can cause problems with printing. First of all, it can ruin your print bed and make it impossible to use again. Second of all, moisture in your filament can cause major issues during extrusion which can result in jamming or even damage to your printer's extruder motor.
Fortunately, our advanced drying system will help you dry your PLA quickly and easily so that you can get back on track with your projects!
We know that printing with PLA filament can be a challenge. While it is an easy material to work with, it is also prone to moisture absorption, which leads to problems when attempting to print with PLA.
Our advanced drying system will remove any excess moisture from your filament so you can enjoy high-quality prints every time!
Our advanced drying system uses a high-tech vacuum chamber that dries PLA filament to-40 degrees Celsius. This temperature range is the ideal one for drying your 3D printer filament. When you dry your filament with our advanced drying system, it will not only be dry but also free from moisture and water.
The Benefits of Drying Your PLA Filament
There are several benefits to drying your PLA before printing with it:
Prevents Warping – If you don’t dry your filament before printing, it can warp during the printing process because of excess moisture inside the spool. This warping often happens when you first start using new spools of filament and can cause issues down the road if left unchecked.
Prevents Clogging – Excess moisture can also cause clogs in your extruder nozzle while printing.
