Volunteers Fighting COVID-19 in Idaho

 

Face shields and PPE that protect doctors and nurses from COVID-19 airborne splatter are in short supply.

Background

As hospitals and front line workers run out of protective gear, people around the world are creating solutions to save lives.

We are a bunch of nerdy engineers in Idaho, and we are 3D printing face shields to help protect workers from airborne splatter. 

Even as we 3D print shields to fill the immediate need, we are rapidly moving forward to even more efficient manufacturing methods like die cutting and injection molding so that we can protect as many people as quickly as possible.
