Inexpensive 3d Printer Filament Storage
I found an inexpensive storage container for my 3D printing filament (8″ diameter spool). It’s a 2 gallon plastic paint bucket from Home Depot. It has a lid (extra cost) that seals nice and tight. Very little wasted space.
They also have an even less expensive 2 gallon Homer Bucket that might work well too, but I don’t have the dimensions.
Nice suggestion, thanks. Aside from keeping tidy, does the sealed environment provide a benefit?
The sealed lid is VERY important! All filaments (should) ship in a sealed plastic bag with a desiccant pack. Moisture is one enemy of good printing. You’ll notice in the ‘top down’ photo two large desiccant packs which will be closed-in with the spools.
