    Since switching to this Multi-reel air tight box, I’ve noticed that strange noises, sounds are coming from within.

    As the printers draw filament to use from the reels, and some of the reels are obviously binding on each other and maybe creating the sound ? or the sound is traveling down the filament from the extruder/printer and been amplified inside by the box. :hu
    I know it has make me look more than once to see if there is anything in there...:ep
    Is anyone else hearing any gremlins in their dry box...? :duc

    I printed some small clips that went on my dowel to keep the spools separated. I ended up removing them because I have lots of space between my spools, but it might work for your situation where they are really close together.

    Sorry I can't find the link to where I got them, but I've attached the STL (BTW, I also added STL to the file-type allowed, so we can upload those directly :) )

    BTW, I just resize that to fit my dowel. I also didn't need it so tall, so I shrunk it along the z access by like 70%.

    Thanks, that will sure make file sharing much easier...;)

    P.S. I wasn’t complaining about the noise, I was just wondering if anyone had the same experience, it’s like having Bats in the Belfry...
