Supported by our smart drying technology, the humidity-controlled environment has been designed to extend the service life of your materials, protecting the filament and reducing print failure due to moisture, significantly improving your prints’ quality.
Protect your equipment and your work against power outages thanks to the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). In the event of a blackout of up to 10 minutes, this technology will enable the 3D printer to automatically resume the printing process once the power is back. In case of a longer outage, the UPS will save the printer’s last position, so that you can manually resume the printing process at any time.
Fit them all
Depending on the configuration chosen, the dehumidifier can fit up to 10 small spools (width up to 55mm), 4 big spools (weight up to 2,5kg), or 6 BCN3D Spool Cartridges -or a combination of them! Arrange your filaments in the most convenient way according to your needs, and reduce the need for loading and unloading processes.
Full 3D printing solution. The Smart Cabinet integrates with your 3D printers, materials, and software, streamlining your workflow thanks to its fast and easy loading of up to ten filament spools and its wheeled structure, which enables effortless transportation across your facilities.
Our Smart Drying Technology
Within our humidity-controlled environment, an automatic drying cycle pushes the air through a compartment filled with alumina, a material that absorbs the moisture.
The desaturated air is pushed back towards the material compartment, free of any moisture that could damage your filaments. This cycle reduces significantly the environment’s relative humidity.
This technology effectively keeps the filament dry, ensuring that the materials maintain their mechanical properties throughout the whole 3D printing process.
Get the best finish
Hygroscopicity, the tendency to absorb moisture, is a great enemy of 3D printing, as it is a prominent characteristic of most thermoplastic materials. Even a small percentage of humidity can negatively affect most filaments and, therefore, the end result of the print job, not only through imperfections which appear on the print surface, but also damaging its mechanical properties. Correctly storing your filament will have, then, a significant effect in the overall quality of your printed parts.
Tested Sample: BCN3D PA (polyamide)
Spool stored 4 days in an environment with high levels of humidity. Over extrusion and poor accuracy. Rough surface, opaque appearance and much stringing are an indication of an irregular extrusion and poor interlayer adhesion.
Spool stored 4 days in a workspace environment with 40-60% relative humidity. Good extrusion and dimensional accuracy, but rougher surface, due to the formation of vapor micro-bubbles.
Spool correctly stored in the dehumidifier of the BCN3D Smart Cabinet. Continuous extrusion without interruptions or formation of vapour bubbles. Smooth surface and no stringing.
The dehumidifier can fit up to 10 small spools (weight between 750 g – 1 kg and width up to 55mm) or 4 big spools (weight up to 2,5kg). These can be loaded to your 3D printer directly from this humidity-controlled environment, therefore allowing it to print while keeping the materials in perfect condition.
Designed to extend the service life of your materials, the alumina absorbs the moisture from the air in the chamber. Once it becomes saturated, this material is isolated from the filaments and gets heated up until it releases the moisture, purging it out of the system. This process effectively keeps the filament dry and in optimal condition for its use.
The tool drawer provides you with every utensil you might need, and thanks to the extra space for your laptop or tablet you count on a full working station right by your 3D printer.
The UPS electric signal filtering protects your print from any possible outages and micro-cuts on the electric current. In the event of a blackout of up to 10 minutes, this technology will enable the 3D printer to automatically resume the printing process once the power is back. In case of a longer outage, the UPS will save the printer’s last position, so that you can manually resume the printing process at any time and without consequences for your print.
Maintain your workspace organized and clean at all times thanks to the ample storage space, designed to keep extra building plates and unopened filament spools – and thanks to the Smart Cabinet’s transportable structure, your printer can be easily moved across your facilities.
