COVID-19 Update - We are continuing to operate as usual during this period. However, there is an increased demand for certain products that are being used to aid the national response to this emergency. This may lead to a delay in our usual delivery times for those products.
There is certain amount of water (moisture) in the ambient air. It can vary depending on the place, but there is always, at least a small percentage of water in the atmosphere.
This factor is now increasingly becoming a serious problem for 3D printing. It’s the source of a lot of issues like degradation or fragility.
All filaments absorb water but, some of them, such as Nylon, PVA or TPU (Flex) are prone to absorb moisture more easily than others. As a major rule, if you leave a filament “unprotected” for some time, it becomes worse to print with.
Our hybrid drying technology dries your filament and preserves its properties, ensuring your material is in its best conditions to be printed.
This system allows the filaments to be dried much faster than any other current solution on the market. In less than 2 hours, you can have the Dryer’s full storage capacity in perfect conditions and ready to use.
Unlike other drying solutions on the market, the Smart3D Material Dryer can dry and store large 2.2kg spools, or up to 30 1kg spools, depending on spool size.
The drying chamber also works to keep your filament dry. The controlled ambient chamber keeps the moisture out, so after drying your materials, you can keep them inside until use.
Our technology ensures that your previously humid filament will achieve its optimal dryness level.

Precise control over the material’s mass flow rate is directly correlated with the moisture control of printed material. Moisture will lead to hydrolysis, breaking the polymer chains. In addition, while filament is melted in the hotend, moisture turns into vapor inside the hotend’s melting chamber, generating pressure. This pressure needs to be released, release that depends on the material’s viscosity. The result may be a back pressure jam or flow variations in the extrusion.
