3D Printers for face shields

Hello All,

I don't think I should have to spend much time explaining why not only our NHS, but a great number of other people (Carers, Delivery Drivers, ..) need to have access to Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) during this time. There has already been a number of initiatives tackling this, and this is another one of them.

I started out printing shields with my office-based 3D Printer, based on 3DCrowd UK Emergency 3D Printed Face Shields files:


But my printer quickly died on me, so I decided to talk to my local council and try to organise a larger scale printing. Brent Council, where I live, is currently trying to arrange a place where the printers will be deployed, and whatever money this campaing collects will be used to buy suitable 3D printers and filament to start printing face shields non-stop. I do not intend to compete with the 3DCrowd, but just keep going on with I already started and had to stop because lack of equipment. Having a production involving a local council in any shape or form, to me means the shields will be deployed locally, where they are needed.

All equipment and material bought through this campaign will be auctioned off and donated to NHS Charities once no longer needed. If the amount collected doesn't allow for proper equipment to be purchased, it will be donated to the 3DCrowd.

Thank you all and keep safe.
