According to foreign media reports that the United States Institute of IIIinois university have warned that
using 3D printers will be harmful to people’s health during the wrong environment and wrong operation
Even lead to diseases such as stroke.3D printing is melting plastic wire, and with very thin build step by
step to the production process of solid objects.
At present, the technology is widely used in construction and aviation, etc, Which slowly become a
mainstream technology. At present, many of the 3D printer are on sales.
The working theory is called the "heating thermoplastic extrusion and deposit" to print out the process of target
object, but the process will discharge diameter is usually no more than 100 nanometer ultrafine particles (UFP).
In the industrial environment, the use of 3D printers ventilation system to remove emissions of these particles.
But the 3D printers is not including the air filtering system currently. After inhaled these particles, the particles
may be deposited in the lungs, or directly absorbed by the blood and thus potentially hazardous to health,
including cardiopulmonary diseases such as asthma, stroke and death.
