The Flashforge Filament Drying Station is a professional FDM 3D printing solution for storing and drying thermoplastics under optimal conditions. When not stored properly, most filaments absorb a considerable amount of moisture from the ambient air. This can drastically decrease their printing quality, resulting in such issues as warpage, stringing, layer delamination, and others. The parts made from carbon and glass reinforced materials show much worse mechanical properties if printed with damp filament.

The Flashforge Filament Drying Station is designed to be paired with the Flashforge Creator 4 3D printer to make a well-organized working space and the optimal printer height, but it can also be used with any Flashforge FDM 3D printer or as a standalone device. Equipped with four casters, the station can be easily moved and is capable of bearing a weight of 120 kg. The spacious drawer houses six 1 kg or two 2.5 kg spools of filament, ensuring you always have ready-to-use material to print with.
The 4.3" touchscreen is used to operate the station and set the drying parameters, such as filament type, time, temperature, or humidity level. For more convenience, there are presets for various materials that can be modified by the user if needed. The station performs three main functions, which are storage, drying, and annealing. In the storage mode, the LCD shows the current temperature and humidity in the chamber. When the silica gel desiccant in the chamber gets moisture-saturated, the regeneration mode is enabled automatically to discharge the excessive moisture through hot air circulation, thus allowing for about 1-year desiccant service life. For the filaments that have taken in excessive moisture, you may want to use the drying function to restore the material properties. The station can maintain the drying temperature of 120 °C.
Some engineering-grade filaments achieve their final mechanical properties only after annealing, so you can do it in the Flashforge Drying Station. You only need to place the models in the chamber, enable the drying function, and set the necessary parameters. The recommended annealing conditions for some filaments are as follows:
