I used the laser briefly the other day as I mentioned with my son, and it
made zero smell... what happened since then?

But it is best to vent out doors in any case :-)

We could also build a very powerful exhaust fan from an old squirrel cage
blower and motor from an old furnace, I have a friend who acquires these
things almost daily, he installs new furnaces....
