University of Pennsylvania: 3D Printing Safety

The Office of Environmental Health and Radiation Safety (EHRS) at the University of Pennsylvania publish a 3D Printing Fact Sheet & Guide with best practices for 3D printing.

This guide highlights the importance of understanding toxic fumes and ventilation in 3D printing. It emphasizes the need to prioritize health and safety by being aware of the potential risks associated with toxic fumes emitted during the printing process. By implementing proper ventilation systems, such as fume hoods and air purifiers, you can create a safe printing environment that minimizes the inhalation of harmful particles and volatile organic compounds.

Furthermore, the guide provides practical tips and best practices for safety and emphasizes the role of ventilation.

Have a fun and safe 3D printing journey!
