Kinder Krowns® - Face Shields
It is our goal to do what we can to help keep our customers and healthcare workers protected through, and after, this pandemic. As you may have heard, we’ve converted production of our 3D printers to manufacture face shields.
About the design
The shields are composed of just two elements: the 3D printed reusable frame and a sheet of semi-rigid plastic that can be easily fixed on. Safety comes first and medical equipment always needs to be approved to be distributed. Per the NIH, this face shield design has undergone review in a clinical setting and is recommended for use. The shield frame will work with transparency films or clear report covers. This material is readily available from any office supply store or online retailer, making replacement inexpensive and easy.
How to do the punching:
- Using a standard letter sized 3 hole punch, you will be creating a 6-hole pattern with a 1" offset between holes.
- Put the 8.5"x11" with the short edge 1/2" away from the standard punch position.
- Punch the 3 hole pattern and then flip the letter sheet around the short axis.
- Make one punch on the opposite side, so you end up with 6 holes along the same edge.
The clear shields that we bought are 10 mil thick report covers with the following options selected: 8 ½ x 11, square corners, 10 mil, unpunched and no tissue. 100 for $18.49. Again, you may purchase them locally or from any other source.
How to get them
We've received an overwhelming demand to our announcement a few weeks back and we are doing our best to produce as many face shields as possible. With every order, we're now going to be including 3 free face shields if they are requested. If you do not need to place an order, and you need face shields, they may be purchased for $2 each, which covers the material cost to manufacture them.
Kinder Krowns® - Mask Fitters
About the Design
Bellus3D's Face Mask Fitter is a personalized 3D printed plastic frame that is contoured to the specific shape of a person's face to improve the seal of surgical or similar face masks. The mask fitter model can be generated with Bellus3D's face scanning app on an iPhone 11, iPhone X, or iPad Pro with FaceID capability. The Loma Linda University School of Dentistry has worked with us on the development and testing of the Mask Fitter and have found that it enhances the peripheral seal of a mask. Warning: While the Bellus3D fitter seems to improve the seal of a face mask, it has not been tested for effectiveness in preventing COVID-19, and you should use it at your own risk.
