Neat. People should just be aware that PLA will suck up a lot of air moisture in a relative short time, so long time storage would be better in an air-tight box or plastic bag, with some moisture absorbing bags thrown in.

Yeah, I've heard that and I get the theory - but I have some PLA that is well over a year that seems to print the same as the new stuff, without any special handling.

I agree it's good to warn people about that though and let them decide. For me personally, I like to have multiple color choices and 5lb reels are such a better deal than the other options that I'm just risking the moisture thing... I'll report back if it ever causes a problem.

All that said, y
ou could still use this sort of setup for a single roll.
