Similar to the positive pressure suit we made before, using painter’s suits, we made another one using an inflatable costume. This will work with any similar inflatable suit, like the silly dinosaur, but being space cases we went for the astronaut.
Our faceshield design is really making a difference. With shortages reaching extreme levels in northern Italy, especially smaller places like K’s hometown of Verbania, we had to help. We reached out to every small fabrication shop we could. Eventually, we found one that would help. For the first week of April 2020, we were reaching out to shipping companies and fabrication shops in order to find anyone who would get our faceshields to Verbania.
Both face shields, and the PET plastic sheets which they are made from are in short supply right now. This project will let you build a face shield from any thin translucent plastic, even a bread bag, by spreading the plastic tightly with a 3D printed part.
With the shortage of medical PPE throughout the world due to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic, we have improvised an effective positive-pressure PPE suit. Our prorotypes have already been sent out to American hospitals. Here are the plans!
With the COVID19 pandemic causing shortages of PPE nationwide, Robots Everywhere has stepped in to help provide resources to our local hospitals. Our 3D Printers have been running day and night to produce frames for these face shields, intended to use semi-rigid plastic such as transparency covers from Staples or Office Depot. See below for the plans.
