3D Printed medical supplies for COVID-19. As reported by Jack Chen, the CEO, and co-founder of the company, Creality, “The COVID-19 has taught us a lesson that 3D printing is so helpful to strategically address manufacturing risk by optimizing the agility of the supply chain. It carries out production at a lower economic scale and any point of need. We are glad that 3D printing is unleashing great potential during this crisis, and Creality is taking the lead to contribute more.”
According to Jimmy Shaw’s Tidbits, “Nearly a month ago I was asked by a friend to print these Surgical Mask Ear Savers for 2 of her family members who work in the nursing industry. The singe request slowly grew over the following weeks. Since then I have been approached by many friends and family wanting this same model printed.
This was something I was honored to do for them. So far I have printed well over 1,000 ear savers and my friend Josh has been helping out with over 275 of them.
Please if you have the ability to print these, support your friends and family who are wearing these surgical masks. after 2 days of wear, just having them around your ears hurt. These are such an amazing help.”
