3D printers produce fumes and ultra fine particles.
Brent Richardson, benevolent overload at the new maker space for kids at the Children’s Museum of Houston, shows how he created a fume exhaust port for the Replicator 3D printer the kids will be using.
We like to tout the modular design of Sentry Air products.
In this case, a component used in many of our products, a collar with pre-drilled holes, was a perfect partner to his maker energy.
YOU’LL NEED: drill, riveter, marker, measuring tools, rivets, drill bit
1. Use the collar as a template to mark its hole pattern on the transparent side panel you removed from the Replicator.
2. Select a drill bit appropriate for the rivets you will use.
3. Drill the hole pattern you marked on the printer side panel.
4. Rivet the collar to the transparent side panel – a sub-assembly!
