environmental factors - 3D printing? (Fan Creations)

I'm mostly worried about environmental factors (humidity, air temp, etc). How does one keep them in check?

I've done absolutely nothing, and still get great results. I do believe that keeping the filament dry would be a benefit. Some people will put the rolls in large plastic containers with small holes for the filament to exit. Add some desiccant to absorb moisture. As for temperature, I don't think that are any problems with the normal range of room temperatures.

I plan to build a cabinet for my rolls and use calcium chloride (ice melt) to absorb the moisture. It's the same stuff they use in those "DampRid" things - but much cheaper.
