Researchers at the Translational Research Initiative for Cellular Engineering and Printing (TRICEP) have been supporting healthcare workers in the Illawarra, 3D printing protective face shields for the COVID-19 crisis
TRICEP, supported by the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) Materials Node and Medtech and Pharma Growth Centre (MTPConnect), in conjunction with UOW Makerspace, Me3D and CammPro, have been meeting the weekly demand of 1000 face shields for the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District. The shields have been cleaned and packaged at TRICEP and then distributed to a central contact at ISLHD over the past three weeks since the Easter Long Weekend.
For more information about the production of the face shield, read our full story on it here.
Below you will find a photo gallery of the 3d printed face shields, with photos taken at both TRICEP and Me3D.
