We have three cats and one rather large litter box that I clean daily so don’t notice any odor. But it was a problem I’d invest in a good air cleaner with an activated charcoal filter. But you could probably make something using a box, a small fan, and a sheet of bulk activated charcoal material.
This filter has been great for my 8 month old daughter with CF. Here are a few tips though:
They say the filter lasts a year, they don't. If you're using acetylcysteine or changing diapers near it, it'll last 3 months. When they go bad you'll notice a funky wet dog smell coming from it. That's $10 every 3 months.
Buy bulk carbon pre-filters and swap them out every month. You'll see a noticeable difference in air quality by doing this step. I buy these, cut them to twice the size of the filter, fold them in half, and attach them to the filter. Way better bang for buck thus way. [link]
Consumer Reports noted that the only time these clean the air is when they're set to high and on 24/7. According to CR, this set doesn't have a lot of horsepower. The most it can clean is a small room.
You should also count on spending more on your electricity bill. On this unit I spend an extra $10ish per month since it's on 24/7.
All in, you're looking at $180-200 a year to run an air filter this size. More if you get a larger unit with a more expensive filter.
Doesn't make a big difference, but a lot of people think you have to pull through it. Buy a quality filter and good duct tape to seal up any seams and you'll be fine.
But by pushing air through, you can't use the prefilter wrapped around the outside of the carbon filter (well, you could, but it would be useless). I got this prefilter and put it over the inlet to the tent.
A box might work. I personally don't have any reaction to the fumes, but I prefer to keep them under wraps anyway. I'm currently using an enclosure with a fan exhausting air through an active carbon filter. (Like this, but typically just a small cutout: [link]) When using this setup I don't smell the ABS at all. The only time I smell it is if I open the enclosure right away after the print finishes or during the print. If I give it 5-10 minutes after the print to evacuate the fumes through the filter I never smell a thing.
If you have a spray booth with a fan, than you should be good as long as you run the exaust through an air filter system. I have a paint booth with a small filter in the front, but if it were me, I'd have Carbon Filters strapped to the exaust for additional filtration. As long as the spray booth has sufficient suction to pull the air through the filter, than you should be good.
You could get cut-to-fit dust filters that are used for other machinery and are usually more effective (stuff like this ). But you are going to have to clean your Pc every now and then either way. I usually give everything a good clean every 1-2 months.
There is no way to avoid dust completely because air has to circulate to keep your components cool and dust particles are going to ind a way in no mater what you do.
Why not just grab a roll of this stuff and make air filter while you're at it?
I'm not fond of that case either. Not just because it's crazy expensive, but because it's unfiltered. For running something 24/7, I'd get something filtered so the stuff inside doesn't get gunked up so fast. Maybe a fractal design case.
If you're dead set on that case, just put some of this between the front mesh and the fans. Cut it so it covers the whole vent.
Also, I can't iterate this enough: Unless a TV will actually be your primary monitor, that monitor is WAY too cheap for a GTX 1070. It's like buying a racecar then slapping eco tires on it.
As a rule of thumb, I like to spend as much on the monitor as the GPU. Personally, I'd get a Samsung CHG70 if I had a 1070-class GPU.
But as a bare minimum, I'd get this:
I have a WES51 I could let go for $75 + shipping. Includes ETH, ETS and ETA tip.
Grip is a bit worn. The stand will get a bit hot and heat up the grip which causes it to wear when you're solder for a couple hours at a time.
I'll include a Hakko 599B tip cleaner.
Don't bother with a fume extractor. They are all shitty. Just grab these carbon sheets [link] and tape it to a desk fan. Works 1000x better than any fume extractor under $200.
I just figured this out and started using this method just recently and I'd love to share it with everyone. I took two PREUSED dryer sheets sewn them together on 3 sides leaving 1 side open (u could probably use masking tape if you don't sew). I then took a full bag of carbon, bought from pet store, and emptied the full bag into the dryer sheets then seal the dryer sheets with tape or sew. I then placed 2 pieces of carbon sheets that I cut to fit bigger than my fan hole. Put the carbon dryer sheet between the carbon sheet cuts, sandwich style, duct tape around the sides to seal everything together. Take the whole assembled filter and place over your fan. Seal with duct tape around it completely. I also put a sheet of carbon over my intake fan (I like to burn candles). If you can completely seal off that bucket you will not have a smell problem at all. I don't have computer fans in my bucket I used 4" personal desk fans, I thought it would be a little more powerful, still am unsure if they are. But I've been keeping an eye on my temp. It did raise it a degree or two but it needed that anyway. Here's a link to the carbon sheets but you could probably find it at the local hardware store and if you go thrifting keep your eye out for fans. [link] Another idea for being stealth when I smoke is I take an old toilet roll, a USED dryer sheet, fold it into fourths then place a piece of carbon sheet over it. Then place on the end of the toilet paper roll. Place a rubber band around all of this to hold it to the end of the roll. I use a balloon for when I smoke. I inhale from the balloon and exhale into the roll. I can actually smoke right next to my bf and he cannot smell it at all (he doesn't smoke). It does feel silly doing all this stuff but if you have to be safe you have to be stealthy. I love you all and stay safe! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Any questions or if you need me to clarify let me know.
Would this work attached to an outtake fan?
Homemade Air Purification System:
I would add Cut-to-Fit Carbon Pad for Air Purifiers for the smell:
Probably the best way to keep the odor down is to blow directly onto the carbon filter and/or using febreze zero would help neutralize odors.
