Ducting requirements ?

What are the ducting requirements for a 2.x laser fume extraction ?
Will abs plastic do or will it need to be metal ducting ?

I don't see why ABS would not work. Sometimes the exhaust gases can be corrosive. ABS might work well for that.

We used generic dust extraction hose on ours. Also the chinese machine came with something that looked like big dryer hose.

If you value your machine I would avoid cutting anything corrosive (Mainly PVC)
