COVID-19 3D Printing Applications

3D printing in support of COVID-19 containment efforts – Producing critical parts to help meet urgent needs.

GoProto ANZ is currently 3D printing face masks, respirators, ventilator parts and other crucial components to help address the critical PPE needs in the medical industry.

If you are developing PPE supplies or need the following equipment please contact us.

Ear Savers – Mask Adjusters

Ear savers add extra comfort to your mask by protecting your ears and making any mask adjustable so it becomes more comfortable to wear.

Abiogenix nasopharyngeal swabs (US medical industry and testing centers)

HP has been working closely with leading researchers at Harvard University and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to assist with gathering test data and refining 3D printed nasopharyngeal test swab designs, materials, and printing capacity. The Abiogenix spiral swab, uses HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology (IRB-approved clinical trial). The swabs are available.

Face Shields

COVID-19 face shield frame prints. Part assembles into the 3D shape by placing the face shield on the pins, connecting the headband, and then adjusting the back strap to fit user’s head.

GoProto ANZ has supplied over 400 face shields to medical and defence facilities within Melbourne.

Stop Gap Mask

The Stopgap Face Mask was created as an emergency action in an effort to provide backup PPE options if the standard PPE has become unavailable.

It consists of two main components (the mask body and the filter cover) and contains features for attaching two elastic straps and receiving a patch of filter material. It is recommended that the rectangular filter patch and elastic straps are disposed of after every use of this device.

3D Print files available for download.

Hands-free door opener

Door handles are among the most germ-infested objects in houses, hospitals, factories, and elderly homes. Materialise is sharing a free design file enabling people with personal 3D printers to print a hands-free door opener.

Pressurised Oxygen Masks

Working as a consortium, GoProto ANZ, Erebus Medical and Cobalt Design took some initial concepts that Italian and UK doctors had done in modifying snorkel masks to produce simplified pressurised oxygen masks. Cobalt spearheaded the design of several custom-made adapters to fit both the snorkels and CPAP masks. Allowing patients to receive pressurised oxygen, while their exhaled air is filtered to protect medical staff.
