ColorFabb did some exstensive testing, of which the results are about to be released next week. Though I've heard from multiple sources that ABS is not the best for an overnight print. We'll see what the research ColorFabb did points to.

I've been printing PLA nonstop in my student room, which is not really ventilated that well tbh.

 

Not to nitpick, It is Eastman who made the tests, not ColorFabb, they will release the results because of the collaboration with Eastman..

ColorFabb just don't have the equipment for it otherwise they made the test themselves.....

Maybe it's just the noise of the printer causing bad sleep thus causing headaches?

I print a lot in PLA/PHA from colorfabb in a room next to my bedroom, i also stay quite a lot working in the room and i never experienced headaches...

@Ian, there has been some research http://voxelfab.com/blog/2013/07/is-desktop-3d-printing-safe-will-it-harm-your-health-ultrafine-particle-emissions-and-vapors/ (not really definitive but it is a start)

if you think that printing next to your bed is bad for your health, then stop it. if the headaches disappears than it probably was the machine.

The thing is not a lot of dedicated research has been done because of the new nature of the technique.

If placed in a big enough room with a decent air flow i don't think 3d printing is that bad for you. but placing it next to your bed and possibly not having enough good ventilation might not be such a good idea.

Take care of your health!

But to be back OT:

this is my Ultimaker Corner :D

The were in a hurry, there are some pieces left on the floor. Most likely parts of prototypes that flew off the pile while moving them out of view :p

Thanks for the info !

Iv just stopped printing for the last 3 days and feel a lot better.

Im kinda screwed at the moment... I want to get back to modelling some things and printing but... finding where to do it... in a shared apartment ..... tricky.... there is really no little storage space I can use.... only idea would be to drill a few wholes in my cloths cabinet... glue some rubber seals on the door and use a compartment for the printer...might work but.... i am going to smell like a PLA beast for the coming months... LOLLL

Though it's not quite a happy corner but still a happy rollcontainer :) I wanted to show how it starts to evolve.

UM2 HappyCorner1

UM2 HappyCorner2

It's an old Ikea container, I think they don't have it anymore. Had it standing around only taking space. Power supply is mounted just inside the rear hole to keep it compact (with this mount by Labern: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/um2-power-supply-holder ).

I plan to add a foldaway table on one side to place the laptop an realise quick ideas an changes.

 

These are levelling feet I made to level out the UM2 (from the start I had a gap under one of the feet) and to fix it a little on the container. If someone would like to have the files just ask.

It's difficult to take good pictures of the printer's surroundings when the printer is still on.

ok, so maybey this barely counts, but i am into my new place, and got myself an Ikea Bekvam kitchen trolly. i dont know about you, buy ultimakers and Bekvam were almost made for each other! (sorry about the mess, when i say i mved in, i really mean, just moved in!)

and yes, phone cameras, even on "night time portrait" are, well phone cameras. what do you expect from a camera that tiny! i hope to develop the rest of that "green wall" into usable worktop space to finnaly get onto some proper model making! I just hope the walls are thick enough for the neighbours, or i will have to test out if my companies sound insulation foam is really as good as they claim!

That's why it's on a rolly shelf right? right?? so it can follow you around the workshop.

It took 7 years for me to convert the garage into "Man Town"!

I'm 6'3" tall so looking into the UM2 is easy. I like to have full access to the filament and extruder. Soon there will be a whole rack system of printers!

Not a bad idea. Didn't really think about that yet, but it is certainly possible.

Hmmmm... that little kitchen trolley looks like a very good idea. My whole "living room table" is pretty much the "Ultimaker-table" now and it's a bloody mess. Moving it to something like this, with it's limited space, would force me to keep it a bit more tidy. Maybe buy two and fuse them together so my old UMO can get off the floor and actually be used again.

Being able to sit on the couch while tinkering sure is comfy though...
