This has been the home scenario for the team members who own 3D printers!
Attentive to the needs identified by the community, FST Lisboa joined the project led by the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEM), and is now producing protective visors for the health professionals who have been working day and night against the Covid-19 pandemic.
The PLA has been the material used for printing the part of the visor that supports the transparency and the printing time is approximately 3 hours per support.
Reproducing the plea launched by IST itself, the team also appeals to its readers to, if owning the necessary technology, join this initiative. These are the times when technology must, more than ever and with greater urgency, be at the service of healthcare.
