Re: 3D Printed CoronaVirus Respirators

Thanks John and Rick for the all information - it is extremely helpful. I plan to print this model in the next 48 hours (with PLA): https://longliveyoursmile.com/3d-printable-mask-for-covid-19/ If the printing is successful, I will reach out to the name referenced in the link and order the filter ma...

Re: 3D Printed CoronaVirus Respirators

Thanks for the great information. In addition to being a 3D printing enthusiast (I own a Makergear M3 ID), I'm a physician in practice at a 1000 bed hospital with multiple patients currently admitted for COVID-19. We have an acute shortage of masks (surgical masks, N95 masks, and related PPE equipme...

Re: thoughts on new M3 I dual

I've also had my M3-ID also about a week now and it has been printing non-stop since it arrived. This is only my 2nd 3D printer and a huge step-up in overall quality and performance compared to what I have used in the past. I've only printed in PLA so far but I hope to try additional filaments soon ...
