Specific Production Notes/Requirements
U-M EHS Makerspace Guideline recommends the following ventilation considerations for 3D printers.
- 3D printers using PLA or PETG filament can be operated in a lab space without special ventilation considerations as long as the general ventilation equates to at least 4 ACH (air changes per hour), and only one printer is in use. If more than one printer is in use, EHS should be contacted to evaluate the need for increased ventilation.
- 3D printers utilizing ABS filament shall be ventilated using any of the following:
- A compatible attached ventilation system (filtered or direct exhausted)
- An EHS-approved fume extraction local exhaust ventilation system (LEV) (filtered or direct exhausted – LEV)
- A fume hood
- Single-pass general ventilation and no less than 6 ACH
For U-M faculty/staff/students with 3D printers in campus shops or laboratories, this activity may be considered as “Directly related to COVID-19 and have a timeline for deployment that could address the current pandemic” in accordance with UMOR COVID-19 Research Operations Protocols. Shop or laboratory directors should request access to facilities with resources to support this activity using procedures applicable to your School or College, or by contacting the office of your Research Associate Dean.
For U-M faculty/staff/students with 3D printers at home, it is highly suggested that they are used in well ventilated areas. For specific recommendations please consult Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection of the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for the filament materials being used. Users should consider returning any U-M equipment taken home to a campus shop or laboratory in accordance with the campus shops or laboratories section above.
