Will prusament come in big-spools finally

To keep the beast fed, will you offer “big spools” like 3 and 10kg spools (and honestly with the big spools an OEM lock on dry box as for those of us in very humid locations with the big spools for a 3-4 day print it matters)?

I think that there has to be some kind of dry box kind of system for the reasons you stated.  Long prints in humid enviros will almost demand it.  Here’s hoping that Prusa keeps it lower cost.

I don't know about PrusaMENT, proper, but the US FilamentPM site sells larger spools of some of the same stuff that Prusa sells.

I made the mistake of ordering a 2k spool of the silver-gray that comes with the machine, and it came on this HUGE honking spool about the size of a fire-hose reel.  Nothing I had would hold it, even two of the MMU2S roller-holders placed side by side, and I had to tediously re-spool it on empty 1k spools.

Thanks. Nice selection of filaments.
