There has been a lot of publicity lately regarding the dangers of fumes from 3D printing. Although this seems to be a larger issue with ABS plastic, our patrons won't know the difference and we are starting to get some complaints.

Staff has already requested that we don't print in any staff areas, and tonight, apparently, our local CBS TV station is running a report on this issue.

What is everyone doing to address the concerns of staff and the public?

We don't have any area of the library that can be sealed off and ventilated to the outside for printing purposes.

Is this an issue at your library?
