Smells ARE fumes.
They are vapor of actual chemicals in the resins.
If you can smell something, you are inhaling molecules of whatever it is you are smelling.
People said vaping was harmless- turns out inhaling aerosolized oils are maybe not such a good idea after all?
I Don’t trust any representation that any chemical is harmless- And methacrylates are known to be mildly toxic, causing irritation to skin, eyes, and mucus membranes.
They are a known sensitizer- meaning with regular exposure you Can develop an allergic reaction to the slightest trace of them.
Although the risk from exposure is relatively low- given how many exposures we have to everything from printer toner to car exhausts and brake lining dusts- it simply makes sense to limit that exposure as much as possible.
That said- there are other good reasons why you want your office printer in an enclosure.
You will be storing tanks of resins, cartridges of resin as well- which are additional sources of odors, but more importantly, you want the PRINTER and all tanks and resins to be as free from dust and light as possible.
So- basically, you want to not be bothered by the smell. less bothered by the noise, and help keep both dust and light away from the resins and the optics.
Might as well invest in an enclosure that can hold ALL the stuff- and filter the air to remove odors and dust.
My form2 fit perfectly in a steelcase office cabinet only 18" deep. set close to the front of the shelf, it has enough clearance to open the lid all the way while inside the cabinet- as well as the head room to insert new cartridges.
the shelves I moved to make room for the printer were put back in lower down spaced to allow for cartridges and resin tank storage.
I cut a 4" hole in the top, right next to the printer I placed a large activated charcoal filter ( the kind they sell to pot growing operations for $40 ) I ducted the outlet from the filter thru the 4" hole to a whisper quiet axial flow fan to draw the air.
In operation, the fan pulls room air thru the door seams and then thru the filter and out into the room.
There is no smell and the printer, running inside the cabinet is quieter. The massive filter lasts about 2 years for this application.
The form 3 has a different size- you would have to look at the thing and measure how much internal clearance a cabinet would have to have to allow the machine to live in there while being operated.
You might need a 20" or 24" deep cabinet.
I bought mine at a used office store for under $200.
However- My office is rather small- and my desk right next to the cabinet housing the printer.
If your office space is large- and well ventilated- like a lot of corporate offices are- you might not need to filter out the odors if you don’t notice them.
