For 645 Glass temp : http://taulman3d.com/nylon-645-spec.html
It's under the "Specifications" tab on the top menu.
Thanks, there's some conflicting info out there :) Also on their own website
http://taulman3d.com/645-features.html states best print temp is 245, but on de specs page they mention 250-255

I've built a vacuum filament dryer from a pressure pot (for cooking), a few vacuum pumps, constant temperature heaters and some thermostats all mostly off eBay. With vacuum you reduce the boiling point of water relative to the filament glass transition temperature. Will try to post some build info when I get home, but that's a month away - happy to answer any questions.

I use a food vacuum machine and a roll of 30cm bag material to store my filament with a desiccant bag in with the roll, it works wonders for keeping it fresh.

What's the spool holder that you have showing at 7:05 mark in the video?

Adrian, those are the spool holders that come with the Prusa Multi Material upgrade for the MK2S and soon for the MK2.5S and MK3
Don't think you can buy them separately but should be pretty easy to build them and as it's open source you might be able to find the files for the 3d printed parts (orange parts).
Here actually for the printed parts : https://github.com/prusa3d/Original-Pru ... -Parts/stl (the ones containing spoolholder-...)

Awesome.
Thanks for that info. I have the multimaterial upgrade, but haven't assembled it yet.
I guess I should get to that.
:D

for another spool holder solution, this design (or one of the remixes) seem rather popular.

I printed one of the remixed versions myself

Which remix did you print ?
