Smart3D Multi-Material Dryer

 

The Smart3D Multi-material Dryer is the only current solution that integrates a hybrid drying technology at end-user level

Let’s deal with the elephant in the room: moisture!
These are a few indications of possible moisture content in your failed prints:

linea elefante
  • Filament cracks or popping noise as filament is pushed through extruder
  • Holes in the top of parts
  • Extruder tip bubbles with a burst of steam, stringy or drooly
  • Bad adhesion to bed
  • Repeated prints are inconsistent or fail with no change in parameters
  • Extruder motor stops but filament keeps coming out
  • Parts become soft, fragile, and break easily
  • Extruder jams

An industrial drying and storage solution within your reach!

  • Preserve your materials’ properties
  • Dry over 10 times faster
  • Dry different materials simultaneously
  • Pre-order in February or until limited stock runs out Ships in April Achieve perfectly dry
  • Filament Dry up to 30 spools*

Moisture, the silent enemy

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.

What is hydrolysis?

Hydrolysis is a chemical reaction in which a molecule of water ruptures one or more chemical bonds. In this case, some filaments that have a certain chemical structure, absorb moisture from the environment and the H2O provokes this effect. This affects the physical and chemical properties of the material, including the plastic resistance to impact, since the polymer chain is changed. This consequence is irreversible. Thus, it is very important to take care of the filament once opened.

Moisture can affect the filament within only two hours of exposure. Since an average print takes between 5 and 7 hours, the exposed filament can ruin the entire print and may ruin your spool.

The Smart3D Multimaterial Dryer is the only current solution that integrates a hybrid drying technology at end-user level.

Preserve the properties or your materials Our hybrid drying technology dries your filament and preserves its properties, ensuring your material is in its best conditions to be printed.

Dry over 10 times faster

This system allows the filaments to be dried much faster than any other current solution on the market. In 1-2 hour, you can have the Dryer’s full storage capacity in perfect conditions and ready to use.

 

Keep track of your dried material With the 7 inch touchscreen, you can access a lot of information about the drying process, dried materials, keep track of your material stock, and many more features. The Smart3D Multimaterial Dryer is Industry 4.0 compliant, which means that it is accessible for third party applications and it can be integrated into your print farm (with ethernet access or Wi-Fi if desired).
