Small box for airbrush on UltimakerHomepage?

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure the box in the picture is a DIY box, with ventilators sucking at the back, made by @baasb (links to his website in his profile);

The photo is from an ulti-evening demonstation in may 2015:

Those have been around for a VERY long time.

I make them myself since its much cheaper.

Big plastic rectangle container, cut a hole in the back, fit a fan so it sucks air into the box. Put a large paper filter and spray into it, voila done. Cost is $50.

Ebay sells some nicer one's for a few hundred dollars.

Or you can go full-on with what the Japanese model-kit/gunpla crowd use, and buy a airbrush fan. Sits on your table, has a built in filter and quite a powerfull fan. You put some paper in front of it and spray onto that, any fumes get sucked in, filtered and voila done.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
