The BOFA 3D PrintPRO 2 Fume Extraction System is a gentle, low-cost fume extractor for open-framed 3D printers. It extracts fumes generated by heating thermoplastics without causing the 3D printing build area to be cooled or disturbed. The BOFA 3D PrintPRO 2 is an affordable, low-impact addition to your 3D printing workspace. It has the benefits of being small, quiet, and energy-efficient so your 3D printing workflow is uninterrupted while your workspace is made safer. Each unit is supplied with a connection hose, a ‘Stay Put’ Arm, and a conical shaped funnel.
The BOFA 3D PrintPRO 2 Fume Extraction System can sit on your desktop, workbench, or on the floor with the Stay Put Arm and funnel positioned next to your 3D printer’s build area. It pulls a small amount of air and any fumes that would come from heated filament extrusion and filters it through a three-stage filtration process. First, the surface area of the pre-filter captures any large particles before the webbed mini-pleat HEPA filter grabs any small particles that may have escaped the pre-filter. Finally, the optimized advanced carbon filter absorbs and eliminates any fumes that remain before venting out nice, clean air. BOFA has made it simple for users, and each filter stage features a condition indicator so that you know when it is time to replace the filter.
The BOFA 3D PrintPRO 2 is recommended for makerspaces, classrooms, or professional environments with sensitive users that require extra protection from fumes in the air. Studies have shown that 3D printing does not cause harmful or toxic fumes, so this unit is not a necessity for all users, but some find the smell from heated thermoplastics to be irritating or unpleasant, especially in an enclosed space with poor ventilation. If you want to ensure the cleanest possible air while you operate your 3D printer, the BOFA 3D PrintPRO 2 may be the solution for you!
