Description

With heated build chambers, temperature in the build chamber can get hotter then the Tg of the filaments. This may lead to warped filaments.

Method of solution

The material is being guided to the hotend in a tubing.

This tubing is placed in another tubing that is water cooled.

This way the filament stays dry and cool in hot environments.
