First Face Shield Printed

Design:

https://3dprint.nih.gov/discover/3dpx-013359

I used a custom cut mirror starting from 12×12 from Home Depot as the printing surface, and Simplify3d software to generate the gcode file, which set the nozzle to 210 and the bed to 60 on an Ender 3 Pro printer. Ask me if you need any help to replicate this. A second shield is printing now.

I found this for the clear plastic shield part because I don’t have a laser cutter:

I don’t know if that material will work or not. I hope so. I will keep you updated. The materials arrive on Monday. I ordered them on the 23rd.

Learn about mechanical ventilation and ventilators

“If you’re working on a ventilator I suggest taking the time to go through Hamilton Medical College’s free E-Learning course on mechanical ventilation and ventilators. It’s 26 sessions and will take you about 14 hours to complete.”
