Crisis Response Proposal: 3D Printing Face-Shields


There is a severe shortage of Face Shields for medical professionals.


Multiple designs for 3d printable face shields are being produced and used on the front-lines today.

Using Noisebridge’s 3d Printers and expertise, we can work to address this.

Organization Involved

A lone scientist organized a local response:

They are handling assembly and distribution. At the moment, there is a shortage of 3d printed parts.

They are organizing on the Slack group BAFSS.

Maker Nexus on the peninsula is also working on this.

Resources Used

3D Printers and printing filament

Resources Needed

Volunteers to help print 24/7 until supply is achieved.

A new process to make these parts faster.
