so im not sure if this should go in the education thread, but i will put it here as it relates to fillaments.

so apparently af ew years abck some studies were done about 3D printers (FDM i assume) that came up with some saying it was super toxic, others saying it was safe, but a study has been done that concluded

1) Pla is almost completely fine, and gives of some emissions, but that are slightly higher than normal, but lower than say sitting in a car

2) ABS should be used in a well ventilated room, another room you can vent, or if its in ther oom with you, some sort of extractor becuse of styrene gas

Link to the article

so all in all, not to bad for PLA, so far tests have shown its all good and waht we though, and ABS is probably as we all expected. somthing smelling that bad cant be good.

Do not use near children. Because of Hotend and some moving parts actually dangerous than Filament itself. Also like working place security Reglements Keep you hair and clothes away from machines like Kitchen Aid or Pizza Oven (I must cook much)

Also sitting in a car subjects you to petroleum based emissions whereas PLA is made from vegetables or maybe vegetable roots, memory fails me. Unlike ABS which is petroleum based.
