2020 Virtual PDC: Emissions, Exposure, and Health Impact of 3D Printing Processes

As 3D printing becomes more common and prevalent, users and employers are becoming aware of 3D printer emissions and the potential adverse health impacts. Extensive research shows that 3D printing with fused thermoplastic filaments (FFF) will emit high levels of ultrafine/fine particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The emission levels are related to the feedstock applied and printer operation and may exceed recommended exposure levels for indoor environments. In this course, a summary of the published findings will be presented along with research studies performed by NIOSH, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Information to be presented includes: a) aerosol characteristics; b) techniques for measuring particles and VOCs; c) aerosol models; d) indoor air exposure models; e) toxicity assessment methodologies; f) ANSI/CAN/UL 2904 standard for measurement and assessment protocols for the printer emissions; g) school and occupational field studies; and h) research results. Exposure to 3D printer emissions is correlated to negative health effects. Room situations, printer operations, feedstocks, and environmental conditions can impact exposure concentrations.
