Several local 3D printing enthusiasts have joined forces to create reusable masks for area health care providers. These are provided at no cost to the providers, and offer a safe and effective way to combat infection in the workplace.
“It started from a healthcare provider in town that knew I had a printer and reached out to me. He said he’d started printing some mask files, ‘but if you print a few for me, I’ll send you the files. It’d be really great if you’d help me out, because I’m going to start supplying some of my coworkers.’
“Immediately, I reached out to two people that I knew that had printers and relayed the same message. Without hesitation, everybody hopped on board and started printing. Now, once a week I drive to specific locations in town to pick them up and bundle the masks. Then, my wife and I disinfect them and put them into Ziploc bags and deliver them to the healthcare providers.
“We’ve made around 200, so far. It takes about six hours to print two masks, and so we are hunting for other makers in the area who can and will help.”
A.J. Biri, one of the makers, has made the design files available for download HERE. He asks that if you live in the area and can help, please reach out via email to email@example.com to coordinate for pick up and etc.
“This is really the first time that we get an opportunity to print and do something that’s helpful for the entire community. I can tell you that they’ve all been thrilled and super excited for what they’re doing, and I know there’s a huge level of fulfillment that they feel, knowing what they’re doing for their community.”
More information can be heard on Iceburg’s Community Corner podcast interview with Biri HERE.
