Odin Manufacturing Launches 3D Printer Filament Storage & Dryer Units on Kickstarter

If you were to jot down a list of reasons that a 3D print could fail, that list would include things like cheap filaments, jams in the extruder, a poorly sliced model, an uncalibrated printing bed or even an unaccounted for cool breeze throwing off the temperature. But a likely reason for a lot of failures […]
