APPLICATION OF LOW-COST PARTICULATE MATTER SENSORS FOR MEASUREMENT OF POLLUTANTS GENERATED DURING 3D PRINTING


Abstract

This work presents measurement results of pollutants generated during 3D printing. The measure of pollutants is the concentration of particulate matter with a diameter of up to 2.5 μm (PM2,5). Materials acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polyactide (PLA) for a 3D printer and low-cost particulate matter concentration sensors PMS3003, PMS7003 were used in the research. Research results show that  low-cost sensors can be useful for monitoring pollution during 3D printing in offices, laboratories or private homes.
