In this webinar, Ryan Singler, Sales Enablement Manager at MakerBot, will review a step by step guide to printing and assembling a protective face shield.

MakerBot is collaborating with organizations such as Columbia University in New York City to 3D print and distribute
protective face shields to hospitals. Due to the highly-contagious nature of COVID-19, these face shields are in high demand
all over the world, and numerous agencies, institutions, maker spaces, and companies are pitching in to help. We’ve created a
basic guide that outlines how to 3D print and assemble face shields. We recommend finding a local group to work with to help
with your initiative.
