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?).
