WOL3D and 3D Printing help India fight COVID-19
Advancement in technology & innovation has to be for the benefit of mankind. 3D Printing technology is ample proof of this statement and how useful 3D Printing during Corona Virus .
As our country goes through various progressive stages of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, we at WOL-3D are using 3D Printing to strengthen the Govt.’s efforts in this combat. With a sharp decline in the availability of much-needed protective gear for medical teams across the country, we put all our 10 offices in action to 3D print Face shields and the mask strap adjuster.
By 3D printing these products, we have completely bypassed the vices of traditional large scale manufacturing like high labor, and manpower requirement, massive investments in acquiring and upkeeping of heavy machinery, etc. With 3D Printing, we are able to make them just-in-time with near-zero stock keeping, minimal labor requirement, and low wastage.
8000+ 3D Printed Face Shields donated by WOL3D
We have donated over 8000 Face Shields to various hospitals, to public servants, medical staff etc. across India. You can make your own Face Shield at home with your 3D Printer.

We are truly glad that our efforts have been acknowledged by various hospitals across India, even though ours is a small role compared to the humongous challenges being tackled on a daily basis by the hospitals & medical teams. Our sincere appreciation and gratitude to every person who is on the frontline, fighting the battle for us. It’s no less than being a soldier in a war![gallery size="medium" ids="8984,8983,8982,8981,8980,9113" orderby="rand"]
3D Printed Ventilator Valves
We have also 3D printed ventilator valves for hospitals. In times of crisis, when there is a shortage of ventilators, Ventilator Valves can be used to enable the usage of one ventilator for multiple patients, thereby increasing usage efficiency per ventilator. This has been done by our offices in South India and in the coming days, we shall be 3D printing the valves for other hospitals across India.
Please do get in touch if you would like to have access to the STL files for these valves. We would be glad to share them with you. However, since they require more precise manufacturing and the right filaments, we would prefer to discuss that information over a call and share the files.
Doctors and their supporting medical teams across all hospitals in India are working tremendously hard to fight this pandemic. We have been supporting them on the ground and we have experienced the seriousness of the situation. It is our sincere request to every citizen to please comply with the lockdown enforced by our Hon. PM. Thankfully, it has been done at the right time and we hope that we recover from this crisis at the earliest.
Please mail us at [email protected] or call/WhatsApp on +919969555777 for any assistance or queries regarding 3D Printing. If you are already 3D Printing & supporting in your area, please share your story with us. We would be glad to not only feature it on our pages but also contribute in whatever way we can.
PS: These 3D printed shields are costing us approx. ₹.100 per piece. If you would like to contribute or donate any amount for this noble cause, please do get in touch with us.
