The ultimate filament storage solution for 3D printing.
The water content in a filament can cause various 3D printing problems, from the print being partially failed to the filament completely unprintable. Leaving your filament spools unprotected will make it absorb moisture in the air and reduce its printability. This happens to almost all the filaments. Therefore, it is very important to store your filaments in a dry environment to ensure a longer shelf life. After 2 successful Kickstarter campaigns in 2016 for our filament dryer and in 2017 for our filament container. We are now glad to introduce the PrintDry Vacuum Sealed Filament Container.
Our PrintDry filament containers keep your stored filament dry and reduce moisture-related printing problems, they will also keep your printing area clean and organized.
5 PACK - Contents of Package:
5 x PrintDry Containers
5x Vacuum Sealing Lids with Air Valve
5x Sets of Lid Clamps
1x Hand Pump
1)Vacuum valve and pump: A special valve and a pump are used to suck the air out to create a vacuum seal and this will prevent the moisture in the air from getting into the container.
2) Stronger structure: In order to hold a strong vacuum seal, both the lid and the container itself have been specially designed.
3) Vacuum indicator: when completely vacuum sealed, the center of the vacuum valve will collapse inward from its original dome shape.
The vacuum filament container has been tested with a 750g filament spool inside for 30 days. The graph below shows the changes of the relative humidity (grey line) inside the container and the ambient humidity (red line) as the storage time increases. Five pouches of 15g desiccant are included in the container.
How to use:
Our new vacuum sealed containers are super easy to use.
1) Place your filament spool inside the container with some desiccant pouches, put on the lid and align the tabs of the lid and the container, engage the 4 strong clamps.
2) Take the hand plunger and line up the bottom of the hand plunger with the center vacuum valve on the container lid. Pressing down gently on the hand plunger, simply lift the plunger handle slowly until it reaches the top of the pump, and then push down on the plunger until it reaches the bottom of the pump. Repeat this up and down motion for 5-10 times.
3) To release the vacuum seal, place your index finger on the outside rim of the valve, and press it towards the center.
Please be aware that too many pumps will end up putting too much pressure on the container walls and lids and will lead to damage of your containers.
Container overall size: 255(OD) x 115(H) mm (10.5"OD x 4.5"H)
Filament spool size (max): 205(OD) x 85(H) mm (8"OD x 3.3"H)
1) A thicker durable plastic to withstand the extreme pressure of on the walls and lid of the containers when vacuum seal is achieved.
2) Accept taller spools of filament than our original container.

These are great, easy to store, easy to piece together. They do not look cheap either, I like them!
I love the containers themselves, they are super durable and have excellent seals. The retainer clips however have a habit of falling off, and the tolerance is off so they are sloppy when unlocked. This is not much of an issue once the container is under a vacuum. The containers would function well without the clips so this isn't a deal breaker. I purchased 2 sets, one of the suction pumps worked about 50% and the other didn't work at all. I fixed both of them by unscrewing the handle from the bottom, taking the unit apart and wrapping the undersized o ring with teflon tape. They both work perfectly now. With a few small changes this product would be perfect!
I have looked at these many times but questioned how some plastic tubs could cost so much, even vacuum sealed. They went on sale and I purchased two sets. Once I got them in hand, I understood. The quality is phenomenal and they have been holding perfect seals since. In fact, I'm getting another set today.
Read lots of reviews saying they were impossible to separate, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore at least. There’s a sheet of plastic between each container.
Super easy to use, will likely buy more in the future as my filament stock grows.
To separate these containers from the stack they arrive in, I ran a couple of inches of very hot water into the sink, and set the stack in the water for about 30 seconds. This expands the bottom container which then pushes off easily. Repeat for the remainder of the stack. It so happened that my containers were very cold when I received them, so you might have to freeze them first to get enough differential expansion for this to work for you.
Functionality wise these are great and hold spools fine.
The absolute horror was trying to separate these to use them. All of the bottom bowl components were nested inside the others. It was ridiculously hard to get them apart. Unacceptable honestly. It's been a week and my fingers are still off and bruise from where I was leveraging against myself to try and separate them. I had two units of 5 each and both of these sets had this same problem. There should have been a sheet of paper separating each bowl, not the tiny bit of plastic used which did absolutely nothing to keep them from doing exactly what they did.... Basically fused themselves together from friction and traveling.
Great product - perfect for my use.
Easy to use and very effective at keeping your filament clean & dry.
I add a inexpensive digital readout that indicates relative humidity in
each container along with 1 or 2 desiccant packs to remove moisture.
Quick delivery. Would recommend.
Good containers for the usage. Better than a zipped baggies. Large spools don't fit (spools from Leoplas). Better storage with these in a closet when you are not guaranted that your place is not humidity free.
Those containers are great to store filament. A little bit pricey, but very well made.
Simple to use and keeps everything dry, as advertised...
Work real good and since I am an over achiever I also always use a Silicon bag in them as well !!!
Very please with the containers. Very tight and quality
C'a protège bien de l'humidité, très pratique.
Using the Vacuum storage containers are far easier to use than zip bags and a straw. The storage containers are well made and I was impressed with large seal used between the lid and main container. The storage containers stack nicely and are stable even if piled 5 or more high, unlike zip bags with filament.
Great storage solution
Good storage container, a bit like a large lock and lock food container but with a heavy duty seal. It seems to work quite well, though I'd imagine buying multiple containers for all your filament can get very expensive quickly.
