Group of volunteers, with knowledge in 3D printing, from the District of Bragança, who came together in community to be able to offer timely protection solutions to frontline professionals.

We need you to help us continue to help.

We are a group of 3D printing enthusiasts who, since the beginning of the Pandemic, have made their means and resources available to the community. We have already distributed more than 3000 visors throughout the District of Bragança : Local Health Unit of the Northeast, other health institutions, Residences for the Elderly and Fire Departments. When no one had solutions to present, this group of volunteers put their own resources at the service of the community.

We received help from many individuals and companies who were decisive in this initial phase of the Pandemic and which enabled the first objectives to be achieved. Currently, the offer of visors is already large. But there is still much to do ...

After days and days in a row, hours and hours of printing, the printers begin to give in to the effort. The fast-wearing parts begin to demand replacement. The material that each one had in stock starts to become scarce.

We need to receive some of your help to continue this work.

We need to face the second phase. If, on the one hand, the State is acquiring essential material, on the other hand, gaps will continue to exist in certain specific sectors and in certain equipment. And this is where we can help.

Objective:

  • production of visors for frontline professionals (in well-identified situations);
  • printing of clamps for orotracheal intubation to ULSNe (procedure in which the risk of contamination by health professionals is very high);
  • ear protectors for better adaptation of masks to the face of professionals;
  • possibility of adapting Snorkel masks for non-invasive ventilation (NIV) with printing of components that adapt to the masks and allow, in a simple way, to help ventilate a patient.
  • and the most important thing is to react quickly, study and implement other solutions not yet defined according to the evolution of the Pandemic.

We believe that now it is the community's turn to give us the vote of confidence we need, trusting us with their help so we can help.

We kindly ask you to send us the support you can get and to understand it justly, so that we can help protect those who protect us!

We ask little. Just a little help to keep helping.

The initial group was created by:

This initial group was later joined by:

This is not a closed group; anyone who has access to a 3D printer and wants to help in the District of Bragança is welcome to join the group.

Budget and due dates

The money raised will be used to acquire material that will help us to continue to produce the material and consumables that have served the front line professionals so well. This value will serve to help production, since it is a small part of what we need. The differential is ensured by the team.

Estimates of costs for continuing production:

- 40 PLA reels - approximate unit cost 20 euros: 800 euros

- Wear parts of 3D printers for repetitive prints (estimate): 300 euros

- 300 sheets of transparent acetate: 75 euros

- 100m elastic (price per meter 2 euros): 200 euros

Estimated total cost: 1375

Of this amount, we are asking for your help at 750 euros.

Your support will serve immediately to assist production.

We need your vote of confidence!

PPL is not charging any fees for this campaign except for the payment costs
