#Up! Plus fume cabinet by Henkbanaan Feb 22, 2013

Description

I find the ABS fumes really smelly and I do have a little fear for potential health risks (Even in a well ventilated room I get headaches when I stand near the printer).

So to be better save than sorry I made this simple yet effective fume cabinet. When you have all the materials you can build this in 1 a 2 hours.

Yes its very flexible. Its a standard 100mm airvent hose. It normally is used for ac's, airducts or dryers. You can get them in most hardware stores. http://www.aangenaamwarm.nl/in...

Nice work!
I've built something similar for my prusa i3 using wood and plexiglass,
however I had troubles finding a good tube,
I only found a semi-rigid one. where did you find this ?
it is flexible as it looks ?

Top idea. Glad to see you got some use of of the adaptor :D

Instructions

Materials:
-A plastic storage container. Just look for one that has the right dimensions, for the Up! plus you need a box that is about L 45 cm x W 44 cm x h 45 cm.
-A PC fan. I used a 120 mm fan.
-A 12 volt ac adapter.
-A female connector to connect the PC fan to adapter (solder the positive en negative wire of the fan to the connector).
-120mm Fan to 100mm A/C Duct Adaptor ( thingiverse.com/thing:37770 ). This model fits exactly in the 120 x 120 footprint of the up! plus but make sure you place the clamps right on the edge of the platform!

Thanx! Luckily the top of the cabinet (ea the bottom of the container) is clear plastic so you can monitor the print from above.
