BLR Statement Regarding COVID-19
For those looking to help with the effort to 3d print masks for medical professionals, please go join this Facebook group for additional information:
For those that don’t use Facebook:
The design of mask that is being requested by medical professionals in the area is this design. Due to compliance regulations, they need to be manufactured exactly as is. This is not the time to build a better mouse trap.
- The materials to be used for making the frames need to be PETG or ABS. PLA melts at too low of a temperature and thus can’t be heat sterilized for reuse
- Here is some information to help you get up and running : https://3dverkstan.se/protective-visor/protective-visor-print-guide/
- We recommend using a .8 nozzle and those settings
Once you’ve got a number of complete masks or frames, please reply to the DC206 mailing list and we will help coordinate dropoff/distribution
Should any of the above change, we will update this message
As a reminder, Black Lodge Research is currently closed to the public per Governor Inslee’s 20-25 “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” proclamation, We apologize for the inconvenience.
