The Fume Hood For The 3D Printer - Part 2

Instead of continuing the use of our fine dust buster to suction the ABS molten plastic fumes outdoors from inside our apartment around our 3D printer, my dear husband went to Radio Shack and bought a small fan to attach to the beginning of the duct. This new advance pulls air from the 3D printer into the duct allowing the air to flow out the window. Anthony was not sure the fan would be large enough, but after wiring it up he found that it worked.
