    MakerBot Replicator Z18 - 3D PRINTER FOR MAKING PPE FACE VISOR SHIELDS

    SKU: MP05950

    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.”

    The Makerbot Replicator Z18 is Makerbot's largest-ever 3D printer. It has a huge 30.5 x 30.5 x 45.7 cm build volume, which is where the name comes from (18-inches on the Z-axis).

    The size of this printer means that you can realise your biggest 3D printing dreams.

    This 3D printer isn’t just about big prints, though. It’s also about accurate and detailed prints. It has a 100 microns (0.1mm) layer resolution with an 11 micron and 2.5 micron positioning precision on the XY and Z axes respectively. This ensures that prints are brought to life with the utmost precision with rapid prototyping and model making guaranteed.


    All in all, the Z18 one of the most accurate fused deposition printers on the market.

    It’s also incredibly easy to use with Smart Extruder which pauses printing if it runs out of filament. The Z18 has Makerbot’s fifth-generation technology and it’s powered by the new Makerbot Replicator 3D Printing Platform which is app and cloud enabled – this ensures that you can make full use of the Z18’s on board camera and monitor your prints remotely in real-time.

    You can even print via WiFi.
