Storing rolls of filament on reels is a problem if they're exposed and not stored in a moisture proof bag.

This video highlights some of the issues we're will experience if we store unsealed filament for long periods of time and also provides a cheap, optimal storage method that lets you just take the filament from a storage box. The air tight seals are 3d printed.

It'd be cool to make something like this. It is sealed and monitors humidity on a small display on the bottom left. It is also wall mountable, I'm sure we can make something like this.

I'll give my go at making something like this for two or three rolls, that can be hung on the back of the 3d printer rack. Though it may take me quite some time to get round to it, I will get around to it.
