We are having a serious problem with the air quality after using the Glowforge. We have written to the company and on every platform we could. We are using draftboard and filtering out of our window. We previously were using the compact filter but when that wasn’t working we switched to outdoors.
Basically what is happening is that after a few minutes of the laser being on, the entire room smells almost like burnt wood. It is giving me a headache and makes it difficult to breathe. The smell lingers for days and into our home where our two small children also reside. We have checked the connection and made sure to patch up any space air could be escaping. We have cleaned the machine and the fan as per recommendations from glowforge.
Is this due to the material we are using? Has anyone had this problem? I feel like I’m seeing so many people use the machine without hassle. Wondering if it is maybe just my machine? I’m nervous about harmful chemicals being emitted into my home!
Thank you for your help!
