A HEPA filter is all I need, right?

A HEPA filter is all I need, right?

Unfortunatley no. HEPA filters address particles that are over 100 nanometers(nm) in size.  UFP particles come in below 100nm.  The UFPs that are produced from PLA, ABS, HIPS and other popular filaments are 15nm to 65nm.  If the UFPs are not contained as they are generated, you can't effectively remove them from the air.
