Up! plus fume cabinet

Post by D3rax » Fri Feb 22, 2013 8:55 pm

I made a simple but effective fume cabinet for the Up! plus to remove those nasty ABS fumes. It was really easy to make and total cost are about 50 euro's :D

Great design, but you'll need to keep the base of the printer with air circulation otherwise the electronics are going to fry

That could be easily solved by cutting vents near the botton of the tub next to the electronics vents on the up. You need an intake vent on the tub anyways. Without one the fan cant really move any air. (maybe you already have one cut out, I might not be seeing it)

Thanks, I've tested this setup for the last few weeks with some big prints as well (6 to 8 hour prints) and it works very effective. No more nasty fumes, no worries for drafts and I dont have to heatup the attic as much as I used to.

Do you mind posting a pic of your updated setup? I'm thinking about doing something similar.

Hi
Can I suggest using a clear plastic so you can see the printer while it is working without the need to lift the cover to take a peek.
Regards
Lawrence

Good suggestion, but I've not been able to find a clear case with this dimensions, only this nice purple :lol: .
But it's not a problem, I can monitor the print from above. The top of the cabinet (ea the bottom of the box) is made of clear plastic so you can look through it.

I have seen transparant containers like these at Ikea in various sizes even UP :) to 150ltr
Always breath out on the way UP
