We recently wrote about the scientists from the University of Leicester in the UK who are developing a face mask made using 3D-printing that can test large groups of people for Coronavirus in thirty minutes.


Copper3D has just published an open-source STL digital file of an N95 respirator that could be 3D printed and protect against the Covid-19. The aim of this initiative, called Hack the Pandemic, is to mobilize manufacturers and printing services to make these respirators quickly available in order to tackle the lack of N95 masks (or FFP2) in the world and facilitate the work of healthcare professionals.
