The response of the world to COVID-19 is prodigious. Globally people are battling with a COVID-19 in the middle of quarantine and economic turmoil and yet, between this chaos some people have been wondering, “how can they help?”.
The response is crystal clear for those in the additive manufacturing industry. Modify models and production capabilities to combat the pandemic at a quick pace. People from all around the world are collaborating to find novel ways to support 3D-printing to fill gaps left by other technologies. From bioprinting to distributed manufacturing, 3D-printing is playing a crucial part in the global counterstroke.
Rapid Prototyping and COVID-19
One thing the world notices most about the novel coronavirus has been the fast rate of spreading across the globe. As a result supply chains are under immense pressure to keep up with the unanticipated spike in demand. In most hospitals, the medical workers are using 3D-printed Face shields and respirators. In other parts of the world, due to travel restrictions, the supply chains may be entirely shut. However, 3D-printing is playing a crucial role in manufacturing customized parts to meet the demand. Earlier we’ve seen a report of varying gloss 3D prints was manufacture when there was no stock insight.
In the middle of this exceptional work, there’s also a necessity for an ordinance to certify the safety and steadiness of the printed parts. In the United States, ‘America Makes‘ has formed a stockroom of authorized models in association with the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Professionals evaluated the models in the stockroom and give a confirmation designation on the website. Anyone can submit a model and the database is swiftly increasing. We are very pleased to be a part of an industry that puts up a difference in the fight, and we know we will get through this as one.
