If your 3D printing filament could do with a little revitalization and has absorbed a little too much moisture from the air causing your 3D prints to deform. You may be interested in a new 3D printing filament dehydrator capable of bringing your 3D filament back to life with a simple touch of a button, say its creators.
An easy indication to see if your 3D printing filament has moisture ingress is when you see small bubbles forming during the print where the water is evaporating when it hits the hot printhead. The small bubbles can be seen in the final print and degrade the final finish requiring further post print work to create a smooth finish. Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the recently launched project from roughly $49 or £37 (depending on current exchange rates).
