With the rapid development of 3D printing technology, 3D printers have been applied in many fields. However, 3D printers with resin or plastic wires produce toxic exhaust (mainly VOCs), which may pose a great threat to the human body and the environment. In order to solve the problems above, this paper proposes a method of treating toxic exhaust gas by using heat-excited oxide semiconductors, and designs a device for treating toxic waste gas. From the aspects of force, heating performance and heat preservation performance, the feasibility of designing the device is verified through simulation analysis. On this basis, a physical device was built and a series of experiments were carried out. The experimental results show that after 10 minutes of treatment by the physical device, air quality from the exhaust outlet of the unit changed from heavily polluted to excellent, and the conclusion is drawn that the device can effectively deal with toxic waste gas. Briefly, the device can be applied to the waste gas treatment of 3D printers with resin or plastic wires, which has certain portability and can be used for the waste gas treatment of other equipment as well.
