Background Information

To do my part in the response to COVID-19, I worked to produce Face Shields for hospitals, clinics, first responders, and other organizations in need. At the peak, I produced approximately 140 face shields a day. Face shields were provided in sealed packaging and were dropped off locally in the Fargo-Moorhead area, or shipped if needed. I’m an engineering student at the University of Minnesota and a Fargo-Moorhead native. I own a personal small army of 14 3D printers. This was my way of doing whatever I can to contribute to the cause

Face Shield and Material Information

NIH Information

The FDA has authorized production of protective face shields outside of the normal clearance pathway during the COVID-19 pandemic, based on Part 5, section D of the “Enforcement Policy for Face Masks and Respirators During the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff." This face shield has undergone review in a clinical setting and is recommended when fabricated as instructed.

The face shield design that I am manufacturing was designed by 3DVERKSTAN and has been tested by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services — National Institutes of Health. Please visit the NIH’s 3d printing website and the FDA’s announcement on 3D printing for more information regarding 3D printing and medical usage. The 3D printing file and design can be found online at the NIH’s 3D printing website. For the clear visor, I am using a clear PVC binding cover. For the elastic band, I am currently using #33 non-latex rubber bands. The frame of the face shield 3D printed from PETG plastic. Face Shields are packaged in an airtight bag and sanitation methods can be found directly above this section.

Thank you to the Supporters!

My 3D printers were running around the clock producing as many face shields as possible. If I was awake, these machines were running. Thank you to everyone who donated any amount to allow me to producing face shields for hospitals, clinics, firefighters, first responders, nursing homes, and more. I’m an engineering student at the University of Minnesota and I am grateful I was able to be putting my skills and machines to use. Thank you for stopping by!
