Meet the Bunker: an app-enabled filament storage system monitors your usage and keeps you in the know on your smartphone. It works with a variety of filaments and keeps them moisture and dust-free. To get started, simply scan the barcode of your filament, load the spool into the Bunker, and feed the filament through to the 3D printer.
The device provides you with print times, duration, successes, fails, and everything in between. It can even pause your print when you are out of filament (if your printer supports such action). Expected to ship in 2017.
