COVID-19 PPE Challenge - 3D Prints


Recommended Posts

Posted · COVID-19 PPE Challenge - 3D Prints

A local maker space in the DC area, Nova Labs, had put out a call for volunteers to help make personal protection equipment (PPE) for the area hospitals, clinics, and COVID-19 testing facilities. My new Ultimaker 3S arrived with perfect timing allowing me to start cranking out parts for 3D face shields, ear savers (for those face masks that pull on the ears too much), and powered air respirator (PAPR) adapters. The  Ultimaker has worked flawlessly since production started and hope to keep it busy as long as it's needed.
