Czech companies and researchers contribute to fight against COVID-19

The Czech Republic has been offering solutions to rising demand for health protection equipment by sharing know-how for production of emergency mechanical lung ventilators, safety face shields and respiratory masks on 3D printers.

What started as a local initiative to print protective face shields has turned into a massive endeavor driven by 3D printing communities worldwide. The design file of the safety face shield developed by Czech company PrusaPrinters reached already over 250.000 downloads and is helping hundreds of thousands of frontline staff.
