Call for 3d printing assistance for masks and other supplies from local hospitals in Western MA

  • Dr. Peter Slavin, President of MGH just went on WBUR asking for folks in MA who have the ability to 3d print (whether as a retail maker shop or individual capacity) to start making facemasks. https://www.wbur.org/commonhealth/2020/03/19/coronavirus-covid-19-hospitals-mgh

  • Baystate (like hospitals everywhere) is experiencing a shortage in masks. https://www.westernmassnews.com/news/baystate-health-employees-are-in-quarantine/article_c653d566-69d1-11ea-8d7e-237dad6593bb.html

  • This seems like a promising open source model to go off of (but I am no expert, and I know others know a lot more about 3d printing than me): https://copper3d.com/hackthepandemic/

  • If you are in the Western MA area and have 3d printing capabilities (either as a retail 3d maker shop, or individually), please fill out the form here: https://hackthepandemic413.com


  • Additionally, if anyone on this list knows folks at Baystate and can help make a connection / confirm that this could help, please let me know (or send info to the above 413 link)!
