This is a DIY 'how to make' a simple heated dry-box for your 3D printing filament that you can use whilst 3D Printing.

For an overview of the build and a video all about it - please take a look at my Blog post here - https://richrap.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/diy-heated-drybox-for-3d-printing.html

Bonus device -
I also have a little bonus invention for monitoring your filament coils while they are in Zip-Lock-Bags - here is the SpoolCheck sensor.


For the temperature/Humidity sensor just search eBay for 'Mini LCD Celsius Digital Thermometer Hygrometer Temperature Humidity Meter Gauge'

The main component I used for heating is a simple flexible reptile heater - you can find these on eBay for just a few USD - Search for '15*28CM Adjustable Temperature Reptile Heating Heater Mat'

Please let me know if you make one - thanks.

Got everything printed, but the heater is too narrow (by about 3mm) to slide into both sides of the slot.I got two heaters to make a 4 spool version of this, but neither one of them fit. I dont suppose you would share the source file so I can modify it? If not I understand, I printed this in PETG, which I'm a total noob at, so that may be it, anyway, excellent design! Thank you for sharing!

Lovely project, just started printing some MasterSpools and this here would be next on the list - if I could only find the box you used, can you link us to it please?

Great idea, and great video !
Everything is explained clearly, except one small detail (probably considered too simple) : the box :-)
I set out to build one, and quickly found the various items that go inside, but I'm having a hard time locating the sort of enclosure you're using...
I'm not a native English speaker, so probably I'm not using the right idiomatic search terms on eBay.
Could you maybe share yours, or even a couple of URLs ?...

Hey Rich, thanks for your work in the 3D community with the master-spool idea, I'm happy to see it taking off. Through that video, I found your video on this drybox idea and I'll be building several for my soon-to-arrive MK3.
