Our aim is to supply hospitals, GPs or anyone else that requires face shields with one’s 3D printed on our own personal machines. We have analyzed and picked the best aspects from other face shield designs to create a highly functional, and most importantly, fast printing face shield.

We can manufacturer approx. 6 shields per hour with just 3 people printing, and we are hoping to try and get as many people which are able to print involved in the Swansea and South Wales local area in order to increase production. Right now, we estimate each unit costs approx. £1 to produce, from filament, to elastics to the visor.

Any donations  will be going directly towards these costs, as our own personal supplies of plastic ate diminishing quickly the more we print, and no shield is complete without the other components we have to also purchase ourselves. Any sized donation is massively appreciated, and if you can’t afford to do so, please share our page and invite your friends which will hopefully help us expand and protect the vulnerable heroes on the frontline of our NHS.
