Get involved by additively manufacturing protective equipment for your local community with BigRep.
The ongoing effects of COVID-19 are overwhelming many hospital and organizations who lack the supplies to respond as effectively as they can, and additive manufacturing is a technology with a unique capacity to make a difference. We’re asking you to be part of the solution and print protective face shields for organizations and citizens in your local community.
BigRep is already donating face shields to local organizations to provide protection from the novel coronavirus and we’d like you to join us. With the following face shield design you can help provide some desperately needed equipment in your community. On a BigRep ONE users can print up to 24 of the masks at once, so we're asking our network of partners and customers to get involved. To help, we’re offering a complementary 2.3kg spool of PLA in exchange for video footage of you producing the equipment on your BigRep 3D printers. We’ll use that footage to continue our call for action, getting more and more people involved in this movement.
The process is simple:
- Download our face shield design file (130 mb)
- Print as many face shields as you can
- Source clear plastic screens for the shields
- Donate the equipment to organizations in your community
- Send video footage of your local action to BigRep for more material
Send your video footage to Amir Fattal ([email protected]), and if you need any help connecting to local organizations who might need these supplies please reach out to Alexander Levit ([email protected]).
