I’m hoping someone might have some answers to extraction problems we’re having!
We bought a Glowforge Basic a couple of years ago for our College in the UK. Initially we wanted to buy the filter unit as well but for some reason they couldn’t ship it to the UK (not sure if this was a stock or customs issue)
We’re finally getting around to trying to use it regularly but having problems with stinking out the rest of the College! The current setup is the Glowforge is in it’s own cupboard with the hose hanging out the window. The area outside is sort of like a courtyard so surrounded by buildings on each side and the hose is about 2 stories up. We’re finding the smell getting trapped in this courtyard area and seeping into classrooms (particularly at the moment as everyone has windows open due to COVID)
We’re looking into getting some sort of air filter unit but everything I’ve found on the forum seems to be in the US and I’m wondering if anyone in the UK has any suggestions as to what would be suitable. Obviously being a College we don’t have a huge budget for this kind of thing. Would something like this help remove some of the smell/particles?

Materials were cutting/engraving mainly seem to be wood and card perhaps with the odd bit of acrylic.
Any help greatly appreciated! I’m rather new to all of this so I’m a little lost!
