Hi and welcome to the forum ;)

If you plan to print in the same room where you sleep (and when you sleep) i can already tell you to forget about it. It's not a noisy printer but you won't be able to sleep next to it (or you'll need to drink a lot of whisky before :mrgreen: )

What do you mean by very noisy by the way? When printing or when idle?

Some people seem to have a very noisy middle fan, search this forum to find more about it (search with google advanced search withing the forum).

I've had a lot of vibration noise from the metal fan holder, check if you have losse screw in the side fans ...

I wouldn't sleep in the same room where the printer is working. Beside of the noise, I would rise concerns over the fumes.

A video would help to determine any sounds that aren't normal.

    • 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.
