Issues are used to track todos, bugs or requests. To get started, you could create an issue.
@tomulinek this cover just helps you manage these issues alittle better, It doesn't eliminate it.
It would reduce the air borne particles by confining them within the case to a extent.
An analogy would be like if you were to leave a printer printing in a small room. Though it is no hermatically sealed, occupant outside the room benefits from not being directly exposed to possible emissions.
If you are after a full system I think the people at 3dprintclean offers enclosures with hepa filters
Hi, very nice, simple design! But how the enclosure can deal with danger emissions (ultrafine particles and some hazardous volatile organic compounds) if there are open vents without any (HEPA) filtration?
Hi @MartinFerguson. Yes we would recommend sourcing a local plastics fabricator to help you fabricate the using the plans provided.
We make ours via Regency Plastics in Victoria, who charge us about $275 inc GST to make them.
We also sell the covers but not available interstate as we have recently found out that the covers don't travel well via courier.
And how is the average person supposed to assemble this?
