Stratasys is working to 3D print 5,000 full face shields for medical personnel by March 27th.
To make it happen, the company has mobilized its global 3D-printing network to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company has donated printing capacity across all regions spanning its Stratasys, GrabCAD, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing and partner network.
The shields are no cost to the recipients and include a 3D-printed frame and a clear plastic shield.
Some hospitals are down to six days worth of inventory and the pandemic is still building momentum.
Stratasys is posting the printing and assembly instructions on its COVID-19 response page.
Every 3D printing shop in the U.S. is invited to join the effort.
Next, the company is joining the effort to design a new rapidly deployable ventilator.
