3D Printer Medical Face Shield

With medical professionals in the city, province and nationwide in need of personal protection equipment, Arnold made his way to help when he saw a design online for face shields that can be made using 3D printers.

Right now he is centralizing his stock to help the teachers in Ateneo (Iloilo) to provide face shields to WVMC and WV sanitarium staff.

The shields will be used in combination with a standard dust mask, provide the another level of protection for our frontliners to guard them against the spread of the virus.

Let us Help Arnold Help

Arnold is on a printing marathon. He is calling everyone who has 3D printers to stand and help in printing. He will provide a Gcode file that prints 5 shield holders at once and takes 7 hours.

He suggested that can leave your printer running while sleeping.

Just send him private message so he can provide the Gcode. His Facebook is Arnold DP.
