Currently we are operating with over 30 community members, who run 3D printers at home to help build small batch supplies for face shields. Three makerspaces (MADE Makerspace, Inventor Forge, and Arch Reactor) are assisting with the hands-on manufacturing needs of FSISTL. We recognize a need for flexibility, reliability, and community as the COVID-19 pandemic spreads into our St. Louis regional area.
Our team works around the clock, and out of pocket. All donated funds are used to help this jump-started organization pay for materials (PETG sheets and filament, PLA filament, and more) and administrative needs (ex. website, utilities) as we evolve.
We will be withdrawing these funds regularly- currently we have amassed over $4,000 in material costs, and plan to order more materials in the coming weeks. Having availability in funds allows us to make quick decisions on material purchases, which is a necessity in today's drying-up supply chain of plastics.
