Canadian Makers Respond to COVID-19

A coordinated effort to get 3D printed faceshields into the hands of those that need them.

Shop3D.ca will cover the cost of filament, shipping and logistics, making it free to volunteer or get protection for front-line workers.

Medical Workers: Request Face Shields

Protect yourself and your team with free face shields. We will follow up to confirm your workplace and needs.

Face Shields Temporarily Unavailable
Due to the incredible demand for face shields, we've temporarily closed off orders so that we can catch up. You can reach us at Contact@CovidStop.ca for urgent situations or for more details.

How To Get Face Shields

  1. Place an order for the quantity you need
  2. We'll follow up to confirm your information
  3. Face Shields will be produced in-house or sourced from the community to meet demand
  4. They will be shipped to your location
  5. Assemble masks and wear (see video below)

Why Choose These Shields?

This version of the shield doesn't rely on the 3D printed part as protection, and instead works as a visor acting as a shield that protects the front-line workers from fluids that may reach their faces. It improves on other 3D printed face shields in a few ways:
  1. Assembled in under a minute
  2. Can ship flat
  3. No tools required for assembly
  4. Prints in under 1.5 hours* (See printing guide for details)
  5. Uses a TPU filament strap that requires no printing and doesn't snag on the hair/head
  6. Angled ergonomic design for comfort and relief on the forehead

FAQ

Answers to the most commonly asked questions

We would like to go with a different face shield design, is that possible?

Please contact contact@covidstop.ca to request different 3D printed face shield designs.

We require another 3D printed item, can we get that?

Please contact contact@covidstop.ca and we will work to assist you.

We are not a hospital but require face shields. Can we order?

We are open to working with social workers, pharmacists and other front-line workers that have a need for a face shield. You can place an order and we will follow up with you, or you can contact us to discuss your needs.

My slicer is showing more than 1.5 hours, how can I cut down the time?

We have put together a Blog Post that details how to print the face shield for beginner and advanced users. If you have any questions you can ask us at contact@covidstop.ca

Can I use my own filament? Do I have to buy material?

Yes, you can use your own filament! Just Request a Shipping Label and we will cover the shipping costs. You do not have to buy material, but we do offer it for those who would like to be reimbursed for their efforts. Unfortunately we cannot reimburse you for filament that did not come from us, but we will be happy to accept the face shields you print as donations.

Why do you charge for material?

We want to make sure that our donated filament supplies are going toward the masks. Once masks have been received you will be fully refunded the cost of the material. If you already have filament you can skip purchasing and simply request a return label.

Proper PPE is coming from companies/china, why make 3D printed masks?

We fully believe that factory retooling and manufacturer production of PPE is solution to this problem. However, retooling and shipping takes time. We are filling the gap between now (when supplies are running low) and when a restock arrives. We anticipate that hospitals will be stocked first, so there may be secondary demand from other front-line workers such as pharmacists and nursing homes until they can be restocked as well.

To prevent wasted product and effort, we will closely monitor volunteer production vs. demand for the face shields.
