- Carlton DoddModeratorFor PLA, we usually use a part-cooling fan, which will blow the particulates right past the intake for this filter, rendering it ineffective.30w
- Research was done last year, showed, that there is no hazard even from ABS in a well ventilated environment. Also PLA does not release any noticeable amount of hazardous particles in any environment, and its smell is not related to UFP. If you print ABS, the enclosure with vent is a better solution, than this filter. Enclisure will also help with stabilizing temperature, and protecting from air movements.30w
- This would probably work if you did not use a part cooling fan and had fairly still air in the room.30w
- I've always been a bit curious about whether the majority of potentially hazardous gases/particles are even emitted out the bottom of the nozzle anyways, or if they "boil off" and rise up and out the gaps in the filament passage as it is transitioning from completely solid to a melted state. The surface area exposed to the air would be much higher at that point and while some will clearly be passed through the nozzle, the upper passage should clearly be the path of least resistance.30w
