Corona: 3D Makers Help Hospitals, Print Face Masks and Test Swabs

3D printing manufacturer Tangible Creative in New York is working with Columbia University’s library volunteers as well as MakerBot – a company that makes 3D printers – shifting their services to focus almost 100% on printing face shields for hospitals. 

They’ve managed to up their daily print from 60 to 500 face shields a day within a week, while working on gathering a coalition of makers to produce even more face shields.

“What we’re trying to do is get to a point where we can churn out 10,000 a week, if possible,” says Nevaris A.C., co-founder, and CEO of Tangible Creative.
