Just watched the printing nerd video and I'm wondering about the mid to long-term problems associated with different materials going through the same hotend/nozzle. Doubts I have: Printing temps for common materials we use can vary >20%. Using a soluble (especially PVA with which I had little luck) ...
Maybe a combination of "dry" storage (spools in bags with desiccant/inside a bin with some sort of seal) and a dehydrator for a few hours before you use the filament (see forum for recommendations) would be simpler?
I got that dehydrator and it does a nice job. No strings at all. I had to remove the mesh on two trays to fit any of my spools. It also renews your reusable desiccant packs at the same time. I still wouldn't try to "rehab" really brittle filament but this should make a difference with most filaments...
