    CECIMO – European Association of Additive Manufacturing Industries put out a call for help to AM companies from the European Commission. Read more at the link below or contact us at info@3dpbm.com for info

    This looks very promising. Thanks for sharing Davide. Has consideration been given for asthmatics wearing the mask? Some asthmatics have trouble breathing through masks. Some asthmatics that I have spoken to have found that a single valve on a standard P2 mask is sufficient. Other people I’ve spoken to said that they need two valves to breathe comfortably.

    Also, I haven’t seen a P2 mask that wasn’t made of cloth before. What happens in hot weather? One of the problems with fabric masks (both p2 masks and surgical masks) is that in hot or humid weather the mask becomes damp and you have to throw it out, reducing the usable lifespan of the mask from 6 hours (for surgical masks) or 12 hours (for high quality p2 masks) to as little as 30 minutes. (lifespan timeframes can vary per manufacturer btw)

    Found PLA be ready to help when its comes in. Also will forward to others with 3D printers



    What kind / size of filters will fit into these masks?



    May I suggest creating a tagged/announcement post with links to the various designs or files from the different articles? Thanks





    Hi everybody! Super good project! (copper3d face mask) But…

    I had some issues with molding it after 3d PLA printed it…

    Didn’t work as good as it looks like…

    Any tip?




    I have successfully printed the Copper mask in TPU and it fits amazingly well.  I am working with a seamstress now to create cloth covers to provide face contact sealing and provide an additional barrier to the mask itself so it can be sterilized using a dip peroxide solution.  I am setting up a testing rig to see how many times it can be dipped in solution before it starts degrading.  I realize there are actual filaments that are bio specialized, but given the crisis, I am sure that TPU will work just fine for most.  Hoping to crank out about 4-5 masks a day.  Maybe I can get another printer online and do more.  We will see.


    Thank you for this information and for the actions you are all taking. I’d like to to work to compile as much of this information as possible into a single resource that can be distributed as widely as possible.

    Please contact me on LinkedIn or Twitter by searching Brandon J. Sierra to help

    <span lang="en">Dear Mr. Davide,
    I would like to congratulate you for the initiative, my name is Carlos Augusto Shiguihara, it is a pleasure to be able to speak here.
    I am Brazilian, I live in a state called Mato Grosso, and here we have the situation in expansion, but it seems to me under control at the moment, we are all taking care of ourselves and I wish we are well at that moment.
    I have in my radiology clinic additive manufacturing equipment, whether in FDM or DLP and I would like to check the possibility of assisting and if you can send us the project or even the part of the project that can be printed, I believe that we are able to do something in for Brazil.

    I have printed version 5 of the Nanohack mask. Any updates on how this should be glued in places like the chin strap and nose area would be gratefully received. Also are there additional fine filters to add to this I.e. HEPA grade – if so what is a good source to locate this?

    Does anyone know where I can get these files to download an test?

    Thank you

    I am going to start a Gofundme for a 3d printer to create either the masks or valves I want to give an accurate depiction of what I will be doing.  How big of a printer will the mask require?  Any idea how many masks you can make from one spool of filament?
