COVID-19: 3D printed face shields for health workers

April 16th, 2020

3D printed face shields

In the recent weeks, the Herston Biofabrication Institute, which usually makes prosthetics and 3D-printed medical implants, put out the call to anyone with a 3D printer to assist the production of face shields to assist the Queensland government in securing personal protective equipment supply.

Through an inspiring collaborative effort, our group has been part of the delivery of 3,000 face shields in less than a week.

Partners on this endeavour also included Arc Hardware Incubator, QUT, the University of Queensland, Healthia Group, COVID-SOS, Konica Minolta, Shapelabs, community members, small businesses and schools.
