During the COVID-19 pandemic, 3D printing has proven itself to be a remarkable resource in producing protective gear because of its flexibility and fast production turn around. European companies Rupture Tech Consulting and OKM 3D are both experts in 3D printing and have teamed up to print face shields, respirator valves, and more using Raise3D printers.
As COVID-19 caseloads rise, many organizations are using 3D printing to provide a relatively quick solution to produce 3D printed masks, face shields, and other protective equipment.

In the fight against COVID-19, the Sheriff’s office of the Sweetwater County, WY is collaborating with Sweetwater’s County COVID-19 Emergency Operations Center.
Recently, the Raise3D team received an urgent request for "mask-wearing connectors" from 36 hospitals, including Huashan and Ruijin hospitals in Shanghai. Even though there were only a handful of Raise3D employees on hand at the time, any available 3D printers were quickly put to work. By using the E2 printer, the average daily production of connectors can reach 1500 units, and these can be delivered on the very same day.
3D printing, also referred to as additive manufacturing, has ignited a revolution in several industries thanks to the quick and cost-effective production of 3D objects from digital models. With the rapid advancement of flexible manufacturing and innovations in Biomedical fields, 3D printing is now widely implemented for medical purposes, such as: implant designs, surgical planning and training, and prosthetics.
Laboratoire 34 produces high quality 3D printed dental models with the help of industrial Raise3D printers, best slicing software ideaMaker and a variety of filaments for successful applications in dental 3D printing.
Raise3D printers successfully being used to create 3D print large full-scale bones. Without any variation in scale, the 1:1 bone models provide the surgeon with an accurate model to work with and reference prior surgery. Case Study of 3D Printing in Medicine – Printed Bone Models.
The Bengbu Hospital is the top grade hospital in the Anhui Province. Since the end of 2013, Director Niu launched 3D printing application research for vertebrae in the clinical field. To aid in the research, Niu wanted to establish the printing process in-house and be able to sustain running the printing functions within the office.
