The University of Pittsburgh Engineering Makerspace and UPMC 3D Print Lab launched a survey looking for local companies with 3D printing capabilities and other resources who are willing to help with the COVID-19 response effort.
The makerspace and the lab receive direct communication from UPMC about immediate and pending needs within local hospitals and can efficiently route critical resources to the right hands, according to the survey. The survey aims to compile a list of local companies willing to use their capabilities to aid in supply chain gaps. The survey asks respondents to clarify if they are an individual or a business, provide contact information and note their capabilities and capacity.
The list of capabilities includes various types of 3D printing, machining, design engineering, soft goods/stitching and mold making/casting.
