Makes me wonder how effective the Hepa filter is in the UP Box.
A team of scientists has published a study that details the health hazards of 3D printing in enclosed spaces, which it says causes the release of toxic and carcinogenic particles.

I've read a few articles on all this stuff. As long as your not sitting there breathing it out of the machine for days on end you will be fine. As for the bigbox hepa filter. I personally can tell a difference between smell on my UP mini vs my Up Box. Not sure if this is just due to the better enclosure or the HEPA filter but I dont smell much on my Bigbox compared to my Mini when printing ABS.
