We're working on medium-scale (5000pcs+/day, currently at ~1000pcs/day) manufacturing of face shields made out of a two-piece PET cutout and rubber bands.
We are giving them away for free to hospitals and clinics.
The face shield is quite comfortable and sits well on top of the head. It is not the best face shield in the world, but in a few days we should be able ramp up production to a few thousand pieces per day and send them out for free over all of Poland.
We do NOT have any relevant certifications nor guarantee the product to be sterile. Before and after use it is necessary to disinfect the face shield. (e.g. with ethyl alcohol or isopropanol 70%). Usage is at your own risk.
We have published a pictographic instruction and short instructional video on putting the face shield together.
The instructions pertain to version v24 and v28 of the face shield (manufactured and shipped within March 25-28 2020).
If you're a health care provider (hospital, etc.) - DO NOT send us money. WE will help YOU. Fill out the form at https://covid19.hackerspace.pl or write to email@example.com outlining what you need and how much of it.
We're funding the manufacturing using donations and private fundraising - this includes voluntary work.
If you want to help fund the effort, here is our information:
So far we have spent about 4100 on the project.
We are not running any kind of sale. As we manufacture, we will fully donate the result to people in need.
We are looking for base materials. Can you source PET or PETG foil (at least 0.5mm thick)? If so, please contact us ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org
All files are available for download under a CC-BY-NC 4.0 license. In short: you can use this, modify it, publish it but you must keep authorship information (Konrad Klepacki, Mariusz Dyrda, Warsaw Hackerspace) and you cannot use the project for commercial purposes. According to our interpretation it means you cannot profit from the sale of the face shields, but we are not lawyers.
version v24 - 2020 March 26
version v28 - BETA - 2020 March 26
HSWAW shield compatible with face shield Prusa RC2
Why aren't you using 3D print? Time to create one hook for the Prusa project is 2-3h. For comparison, time to cut a single HS-WAW face shield on laser cutter is 3 minutes. And on stencil machine- about 6 seconds. Thanks to that with just couple people working at a time we have the capability to deliver 10000 face shields to hospitals.
I have a 3D printer and I want to help! Excellent! We'll also be cutting face shields for Prusa hooks, so we'll gladly accept any amount of the hooks and pair them with the face shields that we can cut out, and we'll send them to hospitals. Send us a mail to: email@example.com
What material are you using? We're using PET and PETG 0.5mm-0.6mm foil. A little bit thinner or thicker should serve as well.
Who is the creator of the face shield model? Our project is based on excellent project by Konrad Klepacki and Mateusz Dyrda from tuBAZA. We have modified it with our improvements, done by radex, woju, and many others.
We have a stencil machine. We have volunteer workers. We have personal protection equipment (thanks to our donors!)
Collection of projects available on the Internet. What is missing?
and all the donators - huge thanks!
