Upgraded HEPA Filter Mod for CraftBot FLOW Generation Printer Domes

Upgraded HEPA Filter Mod for CraftBot FLOW Generation Printer Domes
06/04/2021

3D printing by molten polymer deposition (also known as fused filament fabrication (FFF) or fused deposition modelling (FDMTM)), as utilized by CraftBot Printers, involves high temperature melting and sintering of polymers. Thermoplastic processing like this has been shown to emit gases and particles, which may pose a health risk. 3D printers have been shown to release ultrafine particles (UFPs) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which have been linked to adverse health effects. These emissions vary by process and material, but steps should be taken to improve safety nonetheless. Utilising an enclosure along with a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter helps remove UFPs from the printer emissions; the addition of an activated carbon filter has also been suggested to improve reducing harmful emissions. This filter, along with the model file to print the fitting, will allow you to upgrade any 80mm enclosure exhaust fan to improve safety and reduce odour.
