GA Tech and UL on consumer FDM printers and fume hazards

Filed under: digifab,E3D Printers — jet @ 10:44

They have a poster and abstract on their site, paper coming soon:

When I got my first 3d printer, a Cupcake, I gave myself nosebleeds by printing in my home office in the winter. “Duh, don’t breath ABS” took about a week to figure out.  I haven’t had problems with Edge fumes printing near an open window; now it’s time to do some 5 hour prints with the window closed. I suspect my mild asthma will be the canary in the coal mine on whether or not it’s time to build a fume extractor.
