I currently have a Glowforge Pro and love it of course. I am moving soon and am looking to add another Glowforge to the collection with a two unit set up in my home office.
As of right now, I vent out the window, but in my new place that won’t be an option, so I am curious on what’s the best way to go with a two GlowForge Pro’s set up with a filter. I ideally don’t want to have to buy two Glowforge fans to have one for each.
Are there any solutions others have done you could recommend?
Thanks in advance (and please direct me to another forum if this has been asked already).
The plan is to definitely be running both simultaneously, so ideally it would be a single fume extraction set up, rather than two GlowForge exhaust fans which is the worst case scenario, but I would ideally want to keep it simple with one.
Here are two options I found that has dual fume extraction units, but I have nothing to gauge by pervious customer experience with laser cutters. Both are from the company PUREX which seem legit, especially seeing it on BossLaser.
Well the description on the first unit says that unit pulls 135 CFM which isn’t enough for even one GF so I doubt it would be able to manage two.
You need about 195-200 CFM per Glowforge. Can’t tell what the CFM on the second one is.
I think you should be mentally prepared for the replacement filter cost of running two Glowforges through filters. Be sure to do the research on expected throughput before replacement. If there were any possible way to continue venting out a window, I’d be looking into it.
