Do you own a 3D printer? Join our fight against COVID-19
We have been producing 3D Printed PPE such as Face Shields, Non-Clinical Face Masks and Surgical Mask Tension Release Bands the last two weeks. After much trial and error, we have found the most useful opensource designs to 3D Print. and we want to share them with all of you! We will be uploading these efficient designs onto our github repository, and have written up a data sheet for them for you to 3D Print and distribute to your loved ones, or anyone else who would require PPE.
Why are we doing this?
The lockdown have us under self isolation, and have therefore ceased our normal operation of 3D printing for various industries. We have now pointed our focus on fighting COVID-19 with the machinery and and expertise. We have found that with our current capacity vs the demand of PPE we cannot fulfill the demands of the public and essential services sectors.
If we can unite as many 3D printers in Namibia, we can stand together to make a contribution to the demand of PPE, and put our minds together to evolve and create more solutions with Design, Prototyping and Product Development made easy with 3D printing, the 4th industrial Revolution!
What will we achieve if we do this together?
We will be able to supply more people sooner with PPE that can help reduce the spread of the COVID-19. This essentially can impact the speed of the recovery process of Namibia and have our country running back to normal again. Potentially this will also put additive manufacturing under the limelight as one of the contributing industries that can flatten the curve of COVID-19 victims.
How can you help? Even if you do not have a 3D Printer.
Please reach out to your loved ones and individuals in the essential services sector who may want or need PPE. If you are not a 3D Printer owner and know of anyone who does, reach out to them and inform them what movement we are trying to make, the Makers Movement Namibia fighting COVID-19!
