3D Printing Filament Storage and Drying: Why and How

Dec 30, 2021 Use an oven that can heat at low temperatures (e.g., below 50 ℃/122 ℉). Since the actual temperature is not always the same as set, you can put a thermometer inside the oven to measure the heat difference before drying. If the filament is heated at temperatures that are higher than recommended, the result could be counterproductive.
