Is 3D Printing Safe?

Is 3D Printing Safe?

RE: Is 3D Printing Safe?

 Deposition in head airways can also lead to translocation to the brain via the olfactory nerve.

That might explain the "abs headache" from hanging out near the printer...

RE: Is 3D Printing Safe?

Perhaps a more immediate concern, however, is the fire risk. My own printer has had the heated bed cirxuit overload and melt a connector, and others have reported small fires (via online forums). As nobody supervises these things through 8-hr printing sessions, it's probably just a matter of time before we start hearing about housefires.
