The definition of 3D printing is basically when a three-dimensional object is built from a computer-aided design (CAD) model. Both smaller schools and large universities now purchase 3D printers for their maker-spaces, fab-labs, STEM labs and more, but most people who purchase 3D printers might not know the extent to how hazardous they can potentially be. Many setups with 3D printers do not have the proper ventilation, and this can lead to harmful effects for the person using the printer. The scary part is that the long-term health effects associated with 3D printing are still unknown. That’s why everyone should follow these ...
