About us

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.

The benefits

Why is filament drying important?  

Hygroscopic FDM filaments tend to absorb significant amounts of moisture from the environment over the course of a few days. Some materials cannot be printed out of the box due to high moisture levels already present in the material. The presence of moisture in filaments can cause visible artefacts during printing, including: poor surface finish, stringing and oozing. Moisture in filaments can potentially cause print failure and potentially affect the mechanical properties of the printed part. As a result moisture sensitive materials need to be dried prior to printing, however without special storage or pre -treatment the print quality can still degrade noticeably, especially during the course of a longer print

Benefits of the Drywise Filament Dryer

As an in-line system, the drywise dryer only dries the part of the filament used for printing, during the 3D printing process as opposed to drying the whole spool. Conventional methods can take up to 48 hours to dry wet filament and can damage the filament spool and/or the filament itself. The filament drying process is pre-calibrated and tailored for every material type, taking out the guesswork required when using traditional drying methods.

FAQ's

Why must I keep my 3D printing filament dry?

A large majority of 3D printing plastics absorb moisture from the surrounding air which can significantly impact the quality of your 3D prints. These plastics are known as hygroscopic. As the filament is extruded, moisture absorbed in the plastic will rapidly expand, boil and rupture, forming bubbles in the extruded plastic. These bubbles can have a significant impact on the surface quality, layer adhesion and mechanical performance of your 3D printed parts. To avoid this, we recommend using the Drywise in-line filament dryer.

How does your product work? 

3D printing plastics are prone to take in ambient moisture, which results in reduced print quality. Our dryer pre-treats the filament to best printing conditions.  

Where is Drywise based? 

Drywise is brand of Thought3D, a company also producing Magigoo 3D printing bed adhesives. We operate out of Malta.
