I read a 3D printing news article regarding Covid19 a few weeks back where Josepf Prusa, the owner of Prusa 3D printers, inspired from community designs in the 3D printing community, had put his 3D printers fleet to work and print tens of thousands of face shield for the medical staff in the Czech Republic.
Currently, there is a shortage of face shields world wide, since the whole world is in crisis at the same time and with many factories closed down, the few that are still operating, can not keep up with the demand. I’ve quickly decided to 3D print some with my Prusa i3 MK2.5S.
I’ve started with the RC2 face shield design developed and improved design by Prusa, after about 6 face shields I’ve moved onto the RC3 model which seems to be a bit more sturdy, faster to print, not as curved around the head bracket which seems as a good idea offering a bit more room under the shield and a bit more space for the air to flow out from under the shield.
