“With feedback from medical professionals, the group was able to optimize a design for a 3D printed face shield. Once the frame of the face shield is 3D printed, a sheet of acetate and a piece of garter are attached to it. We cannot claim that these face shields are medical or industrial grade, but the goal is to give our front liners a form of defense until industrial-level PPEs are finally made available to them. These are distributed for free directly to the front liners and are not for sale,” shared the group in a statement sent to adobo magazine.
While the group focuses on the production of the equipment, they are also calling out to those who have the means to transport the supply:
“We would also like to make a call out to those who can assist with transporting the face shields and necessary materials across city borders. The supplies we have are currently limited, and it has been difficult to procure materials and transport them to the volunteers and beneficiaries.”
The 3D Printing for a Cause PH is a group made up of industry practitioners and is not headed by a single individual or entity, but rather a collective effort of the entire community.
