    eBay filament??

    I just got some clear filament and put it in an airtight container with a device that tells the humidity.It read 60 percent off the gitgo ,is it any good.It was packed with 1 dessicant pack.I have put 8 of the small dessicant packs in there with it.

    I have been printing with E-Bay filament for over a year with no problems.

    all package are vacuum sealed impossible to have 60 percent humidity.

    I do not think you will have any problems unless the filament has bubbles where is has adsorbed moisture. then you will have to dry the filament.

    I keep my filament in a large plastic container with every desiccant type package I have ever found.

    And never open the vacuum sealed filament packages until needed.

    I just bought a big pack of the small dessicant filters this month.On the filament that was messed up I noticed that the filament bag on this order was not vacuum packed .It was packed in a bag you could move the bag around.Do you think the filament bag had gotten punctured?It still had a dessicant pack inside.
