Our 3D Printers (and Faculty!) Are Helping Support Medical Workers
BIG Lab Coordinator Lindsey Own is using Evergreen's 3D printers to join in the widespread DIY effort to help support health efforts. She started off printing a popular design in the maker community, "Prusa RC2" headbands that hold a plastic sheet in place to act as a face shield to protect doctors and nurses; the first batch is now headed to the emergency department at Swedish Hospital in Edmonds. Over the weekend, the NIH approved a slightly different headband for clinical use, so she's switched to printing that one now.
