This hub intends to connect those who need medical aid (Hospitals and Govt. Agencies) and those who can create it using Digital Manufacturing, for which MatterHackers has a broad base of customers to engage with. Whether you are an individual with a 3D printer in your home, or you manage a manufacturing floor with 50+ 3D printers and digital fabrication tools, your support is needed.
Please find the correct registration forms below and we'll be reaching out to each person to discuss needs and how you can help further.
Got idle fabrication equipment in the USA and/or design skills that you want to put to use in response to COVID-19? If you are an individual with access to a 3D printer, manage a print farm or have access to other additive manufacturing equipment, please register below and you will be notified how you can help print parts for medical devices.
If you are a U.S. healthcare professional, provider or institution (including research labs and device manufacturers) in need of fabricated items or equipment, we're ready to connect you to a local source of assistance.
If you do not have manufacturing equipment you can still help.
MatterHackers is teaming up with ATHENA Rapid Response Innovation Lab, a nonprofit organization focused on bringing quick manufacturing solutions to people during times of crisis. ATHENA is supporting multiple efforts responding to the coronavirus global pandemic, including individuals creating prototypes and producing personal protective equipment (PPE). Donate here.
There remains a lot of widespread information out in the world at the moment about how Additive Manufacturing can fill gaps for current medical needs.
We intend to clear the air and be a National Source of consolidated information. MatterHackers stands on the shoulders of a community that is prepared to be put into action. Those members, and our valued customers, look forward to assisting those in need.
While we are still waiting on validating some models, the following have been circulating through our medical facility partners with positive feedback - please feel free to start production and we will be in touch on where your parts can be distributed shortly:
While you wait to be notified, check out the following tips and guidelines for 3D printing components in response to COVID-19:
Volunteers in the Maker Response Hub are 3D printing PPE components that are being delivered across the country to hostpitals and medical facilities in need. All of our volunteers' hard work printing around the clock is truly making a difference.
