Active fume Exhaust for 3D printers (MB R2X implementation)

Reading about ABS fumes made me worried as I share the same space with my Makerbot Replocator 2X so I designed and build this active exhaust with a fan I removed from some scraped equipment.

 

overview

What you’ll see is the first version which is working perfectly but lacks the fineness and style which I will (maybe) do at a later stage. Nevertheless, it works fine, no smell in the office and no worries, no extra noise and no negative effect on the printer due to reduced temperature or airflow.
