Does anyone have any experience with 3D printers as they pertain to use of a space and any particular fire code requirements? I perform inspections at a large university and I'm seeing several in lab spaces; they always seem to be running flat out, and I wonder about their power demand on the building. Thanks in advance! code inspection

According to NFPA 13 (2013) 7-10.3.3 sprinklers or spay nozzles have to be no more than 5'-0 from the duct entrance. per the table A.7.10.2 it shows (D) being measured from the inside of the duct. Would this still be correct if the bend was still horizontal and not vertical, going to (G)?
