Supporting the health effort with 3D printing

  Posted on April 23, 2020

As the Coronavirus pandemic takes hold over the globe, countries are seeing their healthcare systems overloaded and fatigued and in desperate need of personal protective equipment (PPE).

3D printing companies have been able to help by producing face shields for healthcare workers.  The face shields are attached to the wearer’s head and have a transparent visor that covers most of the user’s face to provide a degree of protection. The protective equipment is disposable and as such supplies are under pressure during the pandemic.
