3D Printed Face Shields

There has been a lot of attention on protective face shields and we note that many makers and makerspaces are responding to the call admirably. They are a critical piece of protective equipment for health care workers and there are regional shortages.

New designs have started being posted which resolve the gap at the top of the shield[1 which was identified in many of the first version designs of face shields. We are following this as closely as we can and will post additional designs as we learn of them.

Here’s one from the NIH site in the USA:

Here’s a link to another group here in BC that’s trying to help Makers provide some devices to our healthcare workers.
