Do you own a 3D printer?

If you would like to support the production of face shields for staff at the Barts Health NHS Trust, Professor Shakeel Shahdad from the Institute of Dentistry has developed a template to 3D print visors at home. You will need a minimum print area of 150x150 and will need to be able to mail these items to the Dental Hospital in Whitechapel while adhering to the Government’s social distancing guidelines.

To register your interest and to receive more details, please fill in this form. One of the staff members supporting this effort will be in touch with an STL template file and you’ll be able to ask any technical questions you have.

Urgent appeal for A3 acetate/binding covers

The team leading this effort are also in urgent need of A3 acetate/binding covers to form the shield part of the visor. If you or someone you know has any to spare, whether this is on campus or at home, please contact Hannah Sullivan at h.sullivan@qmul.ac.uk

There are many opportunities for Queen Mary students to provide further support in response to the coronavirus outbreak, which can be found at qmul.ac.uk/coronavirus/support-your-community.
