    How to Extend life of your Printing Filaments...

    You may not be aware, but humidity may ruin your 3d prints over time...just like this:




    TO avoid the above, specially if you've bought multiple colors but dont plan to spend them all at once or in the near future, do yourself a favour:

    1- Grab one of the multiple food sealers available anywhere
    2- Optional: get additional food sealer rolls if you plan to seal many spools.
    3- Bag one spool per roll bag or leave enough roll space to reuse it a few times and leave it like this:





    Enjoy everlasting printing fun!

    Thanks for sharing this video.

    It depends on the filament you are using. In fact there is a whole range of variations here, ranging from water absorption to becoming brittle.
