Be Ready for Coronavirus — 3D printed Respirators and Valves

When the world is at risk of a global pandemic it is especially important to protect yourself. 3D printed alternatives to respirators and face masks can balance out a shortage of necessary medical equipment and protective devices. These projects are open to use, so you can make some for yourself and your family members too. Don’t own a 3D printer? You can order necessary parts printed and safely delivered on demand. As our company contribution, all the proceeds* from orders will go to the global fund for treatment of COVID-2019.

NanoHack 2.0 by Copper3D

NanoHack 2.0 is a 3D printable alternative to the N95 mask developed by filament manufacturer Copper3D. It requires some minor post-processing and assembly but the end result allows for a good fit and customizable structure.

3D printed respirators aren’t officially certified and thus may not be considered a legitimate medical device

How it works

  1. Find and download 3D model(s) in .stl format
  2. Upload the model on Treatstock to get it printed
  3. Place an order step-by-step paying attention to model’s instructions (if any)

Custom 3D printable parts do not undergo any clinical testing, the choice of product for any particular intended use is the sole and exclusive responsibility of the customer.

Recommendations for choosing and using 3D models of protective parts properly

3D printed protective masks and parts can be useful and effective but you must keep in mind several details:

  1. Make sure you select a model that can deliver a good fit. For example, some 3D printable masks are allowed to be heated and formed to fit better. Others will require additional cushioning.
  2. If you select a customisable model, double check all the measurements and scale it, so the part fits well.
  3. In case you are unsure how to scale a 3D file to fit you, try asking a vendor to help you out.
  4. Be aware of 3D printing accuracy rates and account for clearance.
  5. Compare dimensions of the model during Step 1 of the ordering process to ensure there are no mistakes in the size.
  6. Seal the parts to ensure they won’t be any holes and gaps in between the layers. If you are unsure how to do this, ask a vendor to post-process the part for you accordingly.
  7. Remember, like any surface, plastic can be a home for bacteria. Thus, you need to clean and disinfect the part more frequently as well as change the filter parts regularly (at least every day).
