Drying filiment using a vacuum oven?



  • Hello,
    Does anyone have guidelines for using a vacuum oven for filament drying? I happen to have a large vac oven (we're a multi-discipline shop) and I saw a blip on MH about that being the best way to dry filament (Which makes a ton of sense) but I've not seen any other information about it.

    Anyone have experience with it?



  • Depend on the filament your trying to dry as per temp wise, usually about 60 to 80c for a few hours then either put it in a air tight container with some desiccant or a heavy Ziploc bag with desiccant will do the job for storing.



  • Recently I figured out that I turned out to be a protector of the environment. How has it happened? Easily! I came to choose vacuum cleaner and I bought that one https://bestvacuum.reviews/car-vacuums/ that is not dangerous for nature and people. They don't make a big noise.
