NOTICE: We have reached our goal of 400 3D printed face shields and are pausing production until further notice.
Join us in making essential Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our community’s frontline workers. Here are three ways that you can help:
- If you have access to a high-grade 3D printer, you can print NIH-certified face shield models for medical workers. Please refer to this site for guidelines.
- If you have a sewing machine or are good with a needle and thread, you can contribute sewn masks to Montgomery County through Montgomery County Mask Makers.
- If you have access to a basic 3D printer, join KID Museum in supporting Montgomery County’s efforts to produce face shield for frontline administrative professionals. KID Museum is coordinating distribution of your completed shields (see details below).
Here are the specs and procedures:
We have standardized around the Prusa Face Shield.
Once on the Prusa page scroll down to Useful links > Prusa Face Shield – US version > Files and download Covid19_headband_rc3us_1pc and Covid19_chin_rc1us_1pc for printing.
Montgomery County will be providing the transparent shield itself; however, they need our help with the 3D printed parts that serve as the shield holder.
Our goal is to print a minimum of 100 per week — please help to spread the word if you know of others who can help out.
Please follow these sanitation procedures:
