About Drywise

Drywise serves to create higher-quality industrial 3D prints through the pre-treatment of printing filaments. Drywise was made for users of industrial desktop 3D printers who need on-demand, repeatable and reliable filament drying.

How Does the Drywise Filament Dryer Work?

The Thought3D Drywise Filament Dryer is a next-generation 3D filament dryer that seamlessly integrates with your 3D printer. Place your filament on the printer, in the Drywise spool holder, or elsewhere with a clear path to the dryer. The unit efficiently dries filament through a hot air circulation system. With an input port and an output port equipped with a filament sensor, Drywise ensures a continuous, optimally dried filament supply. The sensor also halts operation when printing is done or if filament movement stops. For notably wet filament, a pre-dry phase of 30 minutes to an hour is recommended for optimal results. This step can be skipped if the filament is already

Simply start your print, and let the Drywise Filament Dryer handle the rest. Currently calibrated for most 2.85mm Nylon materials, Drywise is always evolving. Regular firmware upgrades expand its compatibility with new materials.

Key Features

The Drywise Filament Dryer's in-line design efficiently dries only the filament section being 3D printed, streamlining your projects.

Equipped with smart sensors, it dries filament optimally for 3D printing, avoiding overheating and overdrying.

User Friendly 
Featuring an intuitive UI and exchangeable, the filament dryer uses rechargeable desiccant cartridges to minimize downtime.

The Drywise filament dryer’s smart sensors detect inactivity and turn off heaters for enhanced safety.

The Benefits

Benefits of the Drywise Filament Dryer

As an in-line system, the Drywise dries only the filament portion in use, unlike traditional methods that dry the entire spool. This approach is not only faster, preventing the 48-hour drying time of conventional methods, but also safer for the filament and the spool. Pre-calibrated for various material types, the Drywise filament dryer eliminates the guesswork of traditional drying methods.

Why is Filament Drying Important?

1. Hygroscopic FDM filaments tend to absorb significant amounts of moisture from the environment over a few days. Some materials cannot be printed out of the box due to high moisture levels already present in the material.

2. The presence of moisture in filaments can cause visible artifacts during printing, including: poor surface finish, stringing, and oozing.

3. Moisture in filaments can potentially cause print failure and potentially affect the mechanical properties of the printed part.

4. As a result moisture sensitive materials need to be dried before printing, however without special storage or pre-treatment the print quality can still degrade noticeably, especially during a longer print.
