3DPrintClean Enclosures - any experience?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Our UM2E+ is inside a sealed office room.

No windows can open, and the door is shut to keep fumes out of the hallway.

We want people to be able to work in that office room, but the fumes even from PLA are too strong.

Considering buying this air filtering enclosure.

Does anyone have one of these, or have any experience with one?

Would really like to know the results.

I have my printers installed in a laboratory fume extraction cabinet (which I had anyway), so no need for this. But this thing looks a bit overkill to me, and it makes it a lot more difficult to reach the printer and to tune it while printing.

If you only want to extract fumes, without enclosure, you might also consider trying solder fume extraction equipment. RS-components and Farnell should have them.

Or maybe a simple kitchen fume extraction would also work? At least if you put another filter in it (maybe active carbon could work?).

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
