MakerBot, a Stratasys company introduced its new Clean Air smart filtration system. The MakerBot Clean Air System is a smart-controlled HEPA filtration system for the MakerBot METHOD and MakerBot METHOD X 3D printers. The MakerBot Clean Air System includes a HEPA filter that filters ultra-fine particles during the printing process. Internal testing at MakerBot shows that the MakerBot Clean Air System removes up to 95% of ultra-fine particles compared to printing without the accessory. The system seamlessly integrates into METHOD’s intuitive workflow by automatically controlling the HEPA lid and accounting for ambient conditions, chamber temperature, and model material.
The METHOD, METHOD X and SKETCH 3D printers already come equipped with several safety features. Each printer features enclosed build chambers, which will prevent users from being able to touch the parts or extruder when printing. METHOD will automatically pause during the printing process when its chamber door is opened. SKETCH also features a built-in particulate filter designed for safer printing in school environments.
The MakerBot Clean Air System is now available.
