Drybox alternative

Disapointed I was informed that the Cel Drybox was discontinued. Not because it was bad in any way but becuase the had to be made in a too large number for Cel to afford production.

I am not a hobby user so I like to buy my tools and spend less time for setting up the produvtion and as I know how important it is to has dry filements a drybox would be a perfect add-on to my just ordered RoboxPro.

Does anyone know about a decent alternative for Cel drybox? An alternative that I can buy from Europe. If no I may have to make one myself and in that case the question goes to what to build? I think it is best if the filament can be stored inside the drybox even then printing. I will use empty filaments on the printer and program them to current used material.

If there are no other alternatives (the only good one I found is Kodaks Smart 3D Multimaterial dryer but it is extremely expensive) I must consider making my own. Suggestions for good DIY versions is appreciated.

I snagged a used Waring DF-15 food dehydrator a few years ago. I put a reel of filament in it, let it dry for several hours, then put the reel in a 2-gallon Ziploc with a could desiccant packets. It seems to work great.

 

Unlike some dehydrators, you can take all the platters out and fit even a big reel in no problem. See attached pic.

 

I got the dehydrator, ziplocs and dessicant on Ebay.
