<span class=“caps”>ABS</span> vs <span class=“caps”>PLA</span>: Are plastic fumes from <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printers harmful?
3D printers produce plastic fumes by melting the material (filament) for the printing process. The smell is very distinctive and spreads across entire rooms and floors. However, the fumes are not visible, since the filament is burned but rather heated. At least this is how it should be 😉 So the question is whether these […]Continue reading
