Filament Dry Box: Desiccant


Ideal for sensitive filaments, SHIELD achieves 0.01% humidity, which is 100X better than the competitors.

Filament Dry Box: Reduce Waste


Properly storing your filaments can reduce misprinting up to 20%, minimizing printer downtime and loss in print quality.

Filament Dry Box: Save Money


Prevent workflow disruptions from clogs and printer damage, which can extend the life of your machine up to 50% and reduce repairs by up to 50%.

Filament Dry Box for Ideal Material Conditions

Protect your materials in the BigRep SHIELD

Designed to protect your filament from material degradation, the BigRep SHIELD dry box stores filament in ideal conditions to save you time and money by preventing downtime and damages.

Air circulates in the high-capacity, overpressured chamber - capable of storing up to 60 kg of filament spools - and in the desiccant chamber. This achieves 0.01% humidity, crushing the industry standard of 1% by 100X.

Unquestionably vital for the storage of hygroscopic materials, the SHIELD keeps all types of filament in perfect condition, reducing misprints and material waste by up to 20%. Extend the life of your BigRep machine and save up to 50% on repair costs caused by clogging and extruder damage. The SHIELD is a must-have insurance policy to avoid workflow disruptions.

Filament Dry Cabinet: Air Flow

No Humidity, No Heat

The Controlled Desiccant Air Loop

The BigRep SHIELD prevents filament moisture absorption without heat by operating in a sealed environment with highly-effective air circulation. By looping air through a controlled desiccant chamber, the SHIELD effectively eliminates 99.99% of airborne moisture, maintaining 0.01% relative humidity to handily beat the 1% industry standard without risking over-drying from long-term heat exposure.

60 kg Storage Filament Dry Cabinet


The 60 kg Storage Chamber

The industrial-sized dry box holds up to 60 kg of filament, enough material for one month continuous 24/7 printing. The SHIELD provides ample space for safe, long-term storage of highly-sensitive additive manufacturing materials to maintain their ideal condition.

Filament Dry Cabinet with Constant Over Pressure

Constant Over Pressure

The Sealed Chamber

The BigRep SHIELD maintains constant overpressure for an airtight storage volume. This prevents new moisture from entering its chamber during regular operation and ensures the system can quickly remove any and all airborne humidity with 100% air recirculation.
