3D printers, bad for your health?

Recommended Posts

Everything is bad for our health of course and now 3D printers are having fingers pointed at them. The suggestions for reducing any problems are easy and sensible - use in a well ventilated environment and don't stand/work next to one while its printing.

Hi TonyM

I was told the same thing when I joined the CEGB at their head office in Paternoster Square, by St Paul's.......the only difference was the union rep (the precursor to the Health and Safety guy) was talking about the computers in the computer room (BIG reel-to-reel Ingersoll-Rand jobs with vacuum brakes and all sorts of other "high-tech" gadgets):yes:

It's not just model flyers that fly.... time does a pretty good job of flying too......:)

BTW In case you were wondering when that was...... it was1970.......and they're still worrying about the health implications of computer peripherals today!

Regards

The filaments we mostly use are food stuff - corn starch.

Must be nearly as bad for us as any other form of cooking.

What a load of baloney.

PLA and PETG have been tested to be fine ABS does smell and does give off unpleasant fumes.

Brilliant fun to design an make things for our models :)😎

Hi Russell

Real engineering! Lovely job:thumbsup::yes:

Not too sure about the reproduction of the Muller logo though.......in the USA I understand chaps that are making copies of parts that have a logo included, are putting their own names on the parts, using the same typeface but not the makers name........:)
