Ok, so I am a teacher in a three year old building and a colleague and I were granted a chemistry lab to convert into a STEM lab. We have a roughly $20,000 dollar fume/vent hood and for the past two months we have been using the exhaust hood to vent the glowforge, I am pulling roughly 400 feet per minute inside of the vent hood. It seems to work rather well.
I have a question, though, the Glowforge is quite loud, and I noticed that our second Glowforge, which is hooked up to the filter and cartridge is much much quieter. I was wondering if I adjusted the print to say I was hooked up to the filter, if I could keep the machine quieter and save on filter costs.
Has anyone tried to use an exhaust hood for their glowforge?
