The Importance of Containing Aerosols and VOCs
The dangers associated with particulates and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from 3D printers are the same in the workplace or at home. Precautions should be taken to ensure users are protected from toxic emissions generated by feedstocks typically loaded into the 3D printer heads. Engineered filtration solutions provided by ductless fume hoods and ventilation enclosures are the most cost effective methods of controlling such emissions.
