Is 3D printing safe to breathe?

Yes, 3D printer fumes can be dangerous. In the 3D printing process, the melting of plastic releases harmful particles into the air. Notably, the melting of ABS, PETG, and Nylon filaments emits particles that may induce headaches, nausea and irritate the eyes and nasal tract.

How toxic are PLA fumes?

PLA Filament Fumes

PLA is the safest material to use in your 3D Printer. It is made from entirely natural substances such as maize and sugarcane. This is why it smells so nice and sweet when heated up! When it is heated, PLA gives off a non-toxic chemical called Lactide.

UV resin used in 3D printing is very toxic, not only for people but also for the surrounding environment. Any body part directly exposed to the resin can be harmed, and improper treatment of the resin can harm animals and the environment.

Are ABS fumes harmful?

While everyone knows the unpleasant odor from ABS cannot possibly be healthy to breathe in, most of us generally do not really care. However, not only ABS, but also PLA, may release toxic fumes known as VOCs (Volatile Organic Carbon). Not all VOCs are actually toxic, but some may be, especially for younger users.

Can I put my 3D printer in the garage?

A 3D printer can be used in a hot or cold garage, but it needs to have temperature regulated in some kind of enclosure and some protection against drafts. I wouldn’t recommend putting a 3D printer outside because you can get significant temperature changes too rapidly, resulting in bad quality prints.

Is ABS resin toxic?
