3D printer owners looking for a more practical way to store their 3D printing filament may be interested in a new filament storage system which has been created by 3D Printing Systems, called the Bunker.
The smart filament storage system has been designed to monitor your filament usage and keep you informed of its environmental conditions using a companion application that is available for both iOS and Android devices.
The Bunker 3D printer filament storage system has launched via Kickstarter crowdfunding website this week and has already raised over NZD $33,000 thanks to over 143 backers. Watch the video below to learn more about its design and smart features.
Are you frustrated with running out of filament half way through a print, not knowing when your printer has stopped? Do you dream of having professional features of what high-end 3d printers have but with your desktop 3D printer? We’ve created an easy-to-use filament management system that keeps you informed.
3D printers have so many variables that can potentially cause failed prints. Bunker reduces some of the variables of filament issues, so you can focus on achieving quality prints. We’ve all been there, the long gruelling hours spent waiting for your print to finish, only to find out, that somewhere down the line it failed or ran out of filament without you knowing. Those days are a thing of the past with Bunker. We need to put our foot down and stop filament wastage and print failures once and for all. Bunker is a smart filament storage system that can be used with your favourite 3D printer, with any type of filament and features some huge benefits:
– Every Inch – Bunker keeps track of every last inch of your filament.
– Wireless – Stay informed when you’re away from your 3D printer.
– Moisture & Dust-Free – Improves reliability & quality of 3D printing.
– Statistics – Print times, duration, success, fails, mileage and more!
– Bunker App – Receive important notifications on your mobile.
– Print Settings – Find the perfect print settings for your filament brand.
