Can you help the University with materials and skills to start printing 3D medical equipment?
The University of East Anglia has issued a call for help to start 3D printing ventilators, masks and other critical medical equipment. Dr Aram Saeed, in the School of Pharmacy, and Dr Ben Garrod, in the School of Biological Sciences, are mobilising a team at UEA – and across other universities – to start 3D printing ventilators, masks and other critical medical equipment.

Dr Saeed is looking for people with software skills – particularly Solidworks for CAD design, and those trained in 3D scanners and conversion of files to STIL files (printable version).
