FilaSAFE is Filament Dry Box that protects your filament from moisture and dust while printing. Many materials such as Nylon, PLA and PVA are hydroscopic and will absorb moisture from the air. Printing with material with high moisture content can lead to poor quality prints and lots of print failures. The FilaSAFE keeps your filament clean and dry during the 3D printing process so that you have higher print fidelity.

FilaSAFE helps your 3D printer perform better.

Did you know filament that is moisture contaminated is a leading cause of 3D print failures? When 3D printing filament is left out in open air it will soak up moisture from the air. Once your 3D printing filament is contaminated by moisture, your 3D printer has trouble printing with it. It is essential to protect your filament against moisture contamination. 

FilaSAFE stores your filament in an moisture tight container and feeds it directly to the extruder via a 1/4 inch  tube, protecting the filament from moisture contamination all through out the material delivery path. FilaSAFE protects your material from moisture contamination while your 3D printer is printing. 

Using the FilaSAFE with your 3D printer saves you time, money and headaches. 3D printing with moisture contaminated filament causes 3D prints to fail, wastes material and time. FilaSAFE stops moisture contamination of your filament and saves your 3D prints from failing. 

FilaSAFE uses a rugged moisture-tight enclosure to protect your filament.

FilaSAFE uses an industrial grade, made in the USA, air tight enclosure that keeps your filament safe and dry during printing. The enclosure utilize comfort molded, double action, spring loaded latch that make the enclosure easy to open and close. The enclosure is made from an impact resistant polypropylene co-polymer. The enclosure also utilizes an O-ring around the opening to keep the enclosure air tight.

Easy to Load Filament Spool Holder:

FilaSAFE has an easy to load filament spool holder that allows you to change filament out in seconds, while still keeping your filament safe and secure during printing. FilaSAFE utilizes a propriety magnetic locking system that secures the filament during printing, but with just a twist allows you to unlock the filament holder.

Moisture Tight Outlet:

FilaSAFE uses an air tight 1/4 inch outlet that keeps the enclosure air tight and allows FilaSAFE to be used with most 3D printers. It fits with all 3D printers that use a 1/4 extruder inlet. 

Desiccant Holder: 

FilaSAFE has a special container to hold a desiccant bag to keep the internal container dry as a desert. 

All Metal Internals (Industrial Version Only): 

FilaSAFE™ is built using CNC Machined, 6061 aluminum components. all of the components are hard coated anodized to protect against scratching and abrasives.

Designed and Built in the USA: 

 The FilaSAFE was designed and built here in the USA with top quality components.

We wanted to extend a thank you to everyone who has supported FilaSAFE during its development. We could not have done it without you. 

Risks and challenges

The design for FilaSAFE has been in testing and in development for 2 years now and we have proven out the design, quality and manufacturing.

Many of the risks of this projects have been ironed out. The design is proven, the manufacturing is proven and we are ready to sell. Once we get orders we are ready to fulfill.
