How 3D Printing is helping the world combat coronavirus

These are trying times for the world. An infectious disease outbreak that is spreading like wildfire across Earth & having a major impact on human life, trade & business.

However, it has also been a time when the mettle of 3D Printing technology has been tested and used to its fullest potential. Just-in-time manufacturing, accurate quality, low cost and near-zero development time are some of the highlights that have made people, especially the medical fraternity, take note of this highly innovative tech.

We are also sharing links of stl files of Protective Visors and Face Shields that can help you 3D print your own. We have been helping out with 3D printing these products and giving it to the ones who are thanklessly & tirelessly working on the frontline. To 3D Print your own protective visor, you would need a sheet of semi-rigid plastic, a hole puncher, a 3D printer and some filament. You can find more detailed instructions here. We would like to thank 3D Verkstan for the original design of this visor. We have taken their stl file and modified it to suit Indian face sizes.
