A local high school is helping mass-produce face shields to help local medical teams during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even though students are working from home, they developed a prototype to cut down on the processing time. The hum of the 3D printers is constant at Career Technical Education Charter in Fresno.
“Usually, at school, you are giving kids the opportunity to be, but for them, they’ve been the designers; they’ve been the engineers, and now we’re working the lines,” said Jonathan Delano, director at CTEC.
When the project first started, it was taking advanced manufacturing teacher Brian Emerson two hours and twenty minutes to produce a shield. But his students came up with a way to shorten the process, using software programs they learned in school. “So that allows them to create and generate files and build a design, and then we use MakerBot 3D […]
