Slant 3D is working to maximize production of 3D printed face shields to meet the need created by the spread of Covid-19
This is an unprecedented situation. And as infections continue to grow in the United States there is an increasing shortage of vital medical equipment that can protect our healthcare workers.
We are doing all that we can to help in this crisis. Thus far we have dedicated nearly 100 3D Printers to produce Face shields and other PPE for the healthcare systems in our state of Idaho and other hospitals across the country. We are also actively working to help provide PPE face shields to New York as they battle coronavirus.
Full 3D Printed Face Shield
This emergency face shield is designed with a primary 3D Printed PLA headband and single PET sheet face.
The headband grasps the users head and will remain in place even with vigorous shaking.
The headband is manufactured with FDM 3D printing. It is not considered reusable. However you can purchase replacement headbands here. The PET sheet can then be sterilized and used with a new headband.
Face Shields are considered a Class 1 Medical device and are not regulated by the FDA.
We are currently producing 1000 face shields per day to help protect healthcare workers.
Items are shipped flat and will require assembly upon arrival. Process generally takes 1-2 mintues.
These shields have been derived from the design created and utilized in Europe by Prusa. Though our design is optimized to be more manufacturable. We are currently producing 1000 per day with the intent to scale up to 2000 per day.
These shields have been put into production as an emergency measure. We are simply trying to bridge the supply gap that many hospitals are experinencing. Please contact us if you have a need for other PPE as well.
