Material state is a key variable for success
Over 50% of new filaments need to be dried before printing.
In some materials, even small amounts of moisture can compromise an entire print. Our data shows, that even new filament, just opened from a sealed box, often needs to be dried for best performance.
Effects of Moisture

Promakim - Achieving Zero Material Waste
3D Promakim, is a renowned name in Turkey's digital production landscape. They offer solutions to a diverse clientele including the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Rocketsan, Bosch and Turkish Aerospace Industries. Their promise: A guarantee of impeccable print quality and unparalled technical training and support.
3D Promakim was struggling with material management. Turkey's environment, with a high relative humidity, and strict customs who routinely open filament spools for inspection, meant many spools of material were getting ruined before even getting a single print out of them. This, compounded by in-house wastage, was amounting to an annual cost of €12,000.
By adopting Drywise, Promakim managed to restore these materials to their best state. They managed to save €12,000 in material loss, recoup 120 hours which were being lost on material handling, now have superior print quality consistently, and they also regained some desk space as they no longer need specialised filament storage equipment.
How it works.
Fast and efficient in-line drying
