I saw this the other day and was considering putting the time in to do it. How has it worked for you so far? Have you checked the moisture levels with a hygrometer?

Thanks for sharing. I ordered 2 of these boxes http://www.blokker.nl/nl/blknl/wonen-en ... repen-50-l they ware already airtight.

Is it handy to also print from the container? vs storing the filament and getting the role of filament out to print with?

btw, I have 200 grams of silica in the container and its turns out green, so I am guessing there is already a lot of moisture in the air.
I am curious though about if you can over-dry the filament, to the point it becomes too fragile and breaks more easely

And I am using a (cheap) food dehydrator to dry the silica gel, works perfectly
