Re: Lights and Camera

The storage boxes I use for Nylon and Polycarbonate are by Katamco w/ digital humidity indicator. Perhaps over priced. You can likely build your own! It’s just a sealable container w/ loose desiccant beads in bottom and rollers to facilitate easy unspooling.

cleaning unmounted too head w/24V?

Wanting to thoroughly clean an unmounted SE tool head. Last use was printing polycarbonate at max temperature.
Have 24V power supply. Can I just send 24V to heater block... or what max voltage needed to get heater to 285c?

Re: Old Polymaker PC Plus?

Baked PC for 5 days and finally was moisture-free.
To keep moisture-free, made a retainer for teflon tube feeding from filament dry box to extruder.

Desiccant alone won't fix it -- it seems to me that stuff can keep something dry, but it can't seem to dry something that's taken in the moisture already.
Thanks—Didn’t know that! Not crazy after all (yet).

Old Polymaker PC Plus?

For weeks my first roll of Polymaker PC Plus, 2.85 worked beautifully. It's kept in air tight container with ample indicator desiccant that remains yellow... Feeds through teflon tube from container to enclosure... from extruder it is smooth (no bubbles). Second roll same setup. Moved from packaging...
