    Are you looking to HELP PROVIDE PPE VISORS FOR KEY WORKERS?

    You could be making protective visors for NHS staff while staying at home.

    Planet 3D is responding to a request from National 3D Printing Society. The Original aim of the N3DPS is a non profit organisation to connect like minded societies to allow cooperation and help further the field of student 3D printing.

    Recently, however, they have pivoted their resources to build a network specifically for 3D printing face shields for our NHS staff, to assist with the national shortage of PPE. N3DPS are getting their design approved for use in hospitals across the UK.

    The simple design with quick printing times and low production cost, as well as a distribution network that covers the whole of the UK. This will help to maximise the impact we have on NHS front line workers as well as care homes and other surgeries.

    Working with existing NHS suppliers, we are the only initiative in the UK with the ability to ensure PPE gets to where it is needed most on a national level.

    Planet 3D team have responded quickly to the call from N3DPS “ The government’s advice to stay home and stay safe, however we’re desperate to try and help wherever we can. All the NHS staff are on the frontline risking their lives to keep us well, and we’ll be forever thankful to them for that. When N3DPS got in touch it took moments for us to get our MakerBot Replicator+ and Z18 printing Face Shields then put a plan together. We take delivery of our next two printer on Tuesday 14th April and Les will start ramping the production up straight away.”

    The printer cost £1,800 ex-vat each, MakerBot Replicator+ can make 40 visors per printer per day. These frames will be sent to a central assembly point to be connected to the screens, sterilised and then delivered to the NHS.

    "Dr Alex Moghissi “There is huge concern that we may not have enough full PPE. We are part of a group of pan Camden GPs who send clinical staff to the central Camden ‘hot’ hub for Covid 19 – these staff need full PPE including visors. Clinical and non clinical staff in both my practices also need varying levels of protection when they’re working from the practice or visiting patients at home. We need to source more visors urgently. Any help you could offer would help to protect NHS staff and save lives.”

    STANDARDIZED FEATURES FOR EASY AND ACCESSIBLE 3D PRINTING

    To ensure easy, accessible 3D printing, the MakerBot Replicator+ comes with the Smart Extruder+ and all the standard features of its predecessor. A few of those features include an LCD display, an on-board camera, as well as USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet connectivity.

    ENGINEERED AND TESTED FOR GREATER RELIABILITY

    The MakerBot Replicator+ prints 30% faster than its predecessor and offers a 25% larger build volume. For greater reliability and precision, it features improved hardware, like a redesigned gantry and z-stage.

    To ensure consistent performance, our new 3D printers and their subsystems were re-engineered and rigorously tested for 380,000+ hours across multiple facilities.

     

    FLEX BUILD PLATE WITH GRIP BUILD SURFACE

    With the new Grip Surface, prints adhere better, resulting in reduced warping and curling. Prints are also easier to remove with the new bendable Flex Build Plate. The built plate is also factory-leveled so your Replicator+ is ready to go right out of the box.

     

     

    INCLUDES THE MAKERBOT SMART EXTRUDER+

    Double the warranty of its predecessor, the Smart Extruder+ is a culmination of product design and 160,000+ hours of rigorous testing that delivers dependable, consistent performance with superior results using MakerBot PLA Filament.
