Hex Could Save Your Next 3D Print Job

by Matthew Harris

If you have a 3D printer, you know the danger of mixing moisture and your filament.

Simple and Effective – Hex works with just a single button. No complicated settings or interface. 

Built with Science – Powerful setup can dehumidify the chamber in only 10 minutes with minimum power consumption. 

Maximize strength and quality – Perfect prints avoid time-consuming, post-processing treatments.

Why Hex°?

Something that works with the push of a single button.

We designed Hex° to be as simple as possible because restoring your filament is a simple process. The only goal in mind is: GET THE WATER/HUMIDITY OUT.

Presets? More like a primadonna.

Since you cant over dry filament (unless you melt it), presets are useless and confusing. Wouldn’t it be much easier to push a button and not worry about it?

Design.

True 360° Convection

The body of Hex° is not only cool but designed to enable all-around moisture extraction by convection process.

Powerful Fan

A fan pushes the heated air around and around, giving every part of the filament their fair share of heat, resulting in an evenly dried end product.

Interior LED

A blue LED can readily turn on and off to show off your 3D setup. Gets the job done and also looks super, so you can brag a little. (Oh, and you can see your filament, but who cares other than if it looks cool )

Energy Efficient

Every bit of energy is used for the drying process and almost nothing else. Plus, Hex° will automatically lower power consumption after the first drying cycle, ensuring moisture is out of the filament while being environmentally friendly. 

Not all ideas are created equally. THETA° designed Hex° to perform only one function, dehydrate.  No fancy screen and exaggerating heating elements make the best use of 48W. No screen, no extra functions, no wasted electricity.

Built with Science.

Data acquired with Arduino UNO R3 with DHT11 Sensor in FULL POWER MODE 

  • [48Wh Consumption] [10 ~ 12 hour span]

  • [75% Auto Energy Reduction after the first cycle: 36Wh Continuous Power Consumption]

  • Tested in the toughest environment [ Humid summer in New England ] 

  • For Commercial, data is gathered to illustrate the wrong feedback when the temperature is recorded near the heated plate.  

  • For Hex°, the temperature is recorded from the middle of the chamber for a real average temperature throughout the chamber.

  • DATA demonstrating Heat without forced convection provides accurate results in poor moisture extraction, even if the filament is close to the heat source.
