#Up! Plus fume cabinet by xr3dhub 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. aangenaamwarm.nl/info/ventilatieslang-wit-125mm-lengte-3mtr-2481.html
Nice work!

however I had troubles finding a good tube,
I only found a semi-rigid one. where did you find this ?

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 ( http://www.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!
