    A Tipping Point for Additive Manufacturing

    In the wake of COVID-19, the manufacturing industry has been turned upside down. In a world of fixed supply chains and complex logistics, the mega factories we rely on are receiving a beat down. Manufacturing is not a cure for COVID-19, but with the shortages of basic medical products like PPEs and respirators, it’s clear that manufacturing is an important cog in the machine needed to battle the virus. While we deal with our current crisis, it’s time to get real about where industrial 3D printing (additive manufacturing, AM) fits into the manufacturing ecosystem.

    This platform was created to help members of the 3D printing community in supporting others battling Covid-19. The Coronavirus has spread rapidly all across the globe. If infections proceed at their current pace, there will not be enough supplies such as ventilators, respirators, PPE, etc. to meet the demand. Patients and medical professionals are in dire need of technical support.

    We want to provide others with the inspiration they need to tackle this pandemic as a community, as a team. The disease knows no borders, which is why this has to be done on a global level. Additive manufacturing is a technology that can be used to help others. Products – life saving applications such as medical supplies – can be produced locally. Thanks to a digital supply chain we can act quickly.

    We need to slow down the spread of the virus. So, let’s do this! Let’s inspire others. Let’s find solutions to all the challenges that Corona brings into our world. But, this can only be done if we work together – if we form an entity. So, please contribute to this movement if you can. Use the #3DAgainstCorona to make your voice heard.
