3D Printed Face Shields and Sewn Masks


We have another 3D printer set up, tested, and now printing face shields for UT Medical and City of Austin.  That is two printers running 24/7 with a third and fourth printer in action soon.

After combining our forces with a Dell team, we are planning on having 1000 face shields donated and delivered soon.

We have more fabric showing up for the next face masks.  We have come up with a design that is quick and effective.  I’ll keep you updated on the progress.

Thank you everyone for your support!  We could not make this happen without your help.


A main concern was the distribution of the face shields; making sure they get into the right hands, quickly and efficiently.  Well, problem solved!

I have teamed up with a group of engineers at Dell, working with UT Medical Center and the City of Austin.  I will be combining my face shield output with their output.  Together we can increase the overall quantity and efficiently distribute the face shields to those who need them the most.

I am still independently making masks and will continue to donate the finished masks out to the general public. 

I could really use some help for raw material and fabric!



We know that times are tough and business has slowed down.   We have the time, machinery, and skills towards helping those on the front lines.  That means combining our 3D printing and our industrial sewing machines towards making PPE masks and face shields.

I currently use a 3D printer for product prototypes (just for product evaluation and validation).  I only have 1 working 3D printer but have 2 additional 3D printers that need repairs and upgrades.

If I can raise enough for the repairs and upgrades, I can dedicate these 3D printers for making parts, most likely shields to accompany the masks.  I can run these machines 24/7 to mitigate some of the shortages during these times.

Not only could we 3D print some of these items, but we are already set up with a few industrial sewing machines that can be used for the masks.  We have some Juki industrial machines and home machines that we used for production and are now sitting idle.

There could be a time when hospitals, clinics, first responders, and high-risk individuals will be in dire need.  We hope to supply these finished parts where they are needed the most, but need your help to make it happen.

The costs will include;

Parts and upgrades for the 3 machines

Filament necessary for 3D printed face shields 

Material for sewing masks 

Will you Help

We have dedicated our sewing machines, 3D printers, out time, materials, and work towards helping those on the front line. 

The more donations we receive, the more masks and shields we can make.
