Material is the key component in successful 3D printing. There are all sorts of great materials out there, but the problem of them absorbing moisture from the ambient atmosphere is not going anywhere any time soon. Makers have created ways to somewhat deal with the issue, but only now there is a solution for the professional market, where the print quality and success rate matter the most. Drying, conditioning and feeding filament under optimal conditions unlocks the full potential of 3D printing materials. Drying reduces moisture-related 3D printing defects, and noticeably increases printing success rate.
