    Wanting to try printing with different materials, some of which warn of temperature and off gassing issues.

    Don't wish to expose myself or others, including very sensitive African Gray parrot, to potentially harmful gasses. Up to now, weather permitting, I have just been closing the room door and setting up a small window exhaust fan, which allows virtually nothing to escape the room. The room itself, not so great.

    Looking for enclosures and found the apparently popular Mike Kelley acrylic creation of years back, which seems to function acceptably to retain heat.

    Looking at ways to modify this to allow some controlled air exhaust, either to outdoors or through an activated carbon (or ?) filter (loose granular), or both striving for eco consciousness.

    Any thought or executed designs on this?
