After the closure is before the start of production. After all, we, like many other public institutions, had to cease our operations on March 16. Now there were a dozen 3D printers standing around unused. MakerVsVirus and other ideas and projects that developed online in the following days invited us to do something against the virus.
Well, to make a long story short, we are now producing facial visors to reduce the risk of infection to medical personnel and other at-risk groups(the hip girls and guys also call them covid shields). The visors are given free of charge to medical facilities.
Our dear colleagues from the press office have also enriched the whole story with a little more detail and written it down here: Fab Lab of the University of Siegen prints face visors.
What Can I Do?
We can use donations of materials and assistance in making them!
Concrete we are searching for:
- PETG-Filament 1,75mm
- PETG-plates 0.5mm, transparent and clear
- Elastic head hole rubber bands
- Companies and individuals who have free 3D printing capacity themselves
Help, I Am a Medical Facility and I Need Visors!
