About

When Covid-19 hit the UK, like lots of makers across the country, we started 3D printing face shields to donate to our local doctors & healthcare workers. However we quickly realised that as it can take several hours to 3D print one face shield, and as those printed shields are not able to be cleaned for reuse, that we needed to look at a way to mass-produce a version that can be easily cleaned and reused if necessary.

The Project is a collaboration between Concept Shed & Dufort Associates, brought together by 3D printing company 3D Kernow CIC, to develop an injection moulded

face shield that we can mass-produce here in Cornwall. We developed the design with input from Cornwall’s NHS Staff and are currently on our fourth generation face shield.

We developed the design with input from Cornwall’s NHS Staff and will be able to produce 1000 shields a day, to protect our healthcare workers across Cornwall and beyond. We are aiming to increase production to over 2,500 shields a day to meet the high level of demand. We have been inundated with enquiries and had received requests for 1,700 units before production had started.
