DISCLAIMER: All designs should be coordinated with your local hospital, and when possible only FDA approved medical products should be used. One danger of 3D printed materials is that if they do not provide protection, the users may put themselves in more dangerous situations with a false sense of security. Do not make the decision on what products to use, simply make what your medical professionals ask for, and let them make the risk assesment.

    • @Destin WHAT!! I DIDN'T KNOW YOU LIVED IN HUNTSVILLE!!! Rocket scientist I guess I should have known there was a good chance that's where you'd be. My Grandmother and my Mother's whole side of the Family lives in Huntsville, I was just there for all of 2018 and part of 2019 helping take care of my Gma after my Gpa passed. He was a prolific hoarder in his last 2 or 3 decades. at least he collected a lot of really cool things. there are things on that property in one of his many sheds or the garage that could be a part of so many cool experiments. I wouldnt be surprised if he packed away a couple of boxes of face masks or shields & plastic gowns. Ill have to call my uncle. I hope next time in Huntsville I could meet you somehow. People like you and Mark Rober have been an inspiration to me during a time of my life that lacked direction.

    • Great work. How about using the clear large soda bottle to make the face shield? We can repurpose all kinds of things when there is a shortage and cut down our waste.

Reality has it many are deliberately and often times ostensibly misbehaving. To the worse for everyone else and human mankind as a whole. We are almost one year into covid and nowhere near a in a condition that could be seen as "better than before" (not even that), just look at the numbers. How bad can it get until we all pull together on one side of the rope? In any case, thank you Destin, thank you every single one contributing in any way helpful.

  • This is one of the best videos I have ever watched at breaking down the irrational fear of socialism! People working together for the advancement/protection of everybody! Collective agreement to production of standardised products, for the benefit of all! Surely only a moron will put his own family at risk by 'tweaking' the design and putting the safety margins at risk to save a few cents..... Socialism is not communism, socialism is looking out for your fellow man so that they can look out for you 👍👍👍

As soon as this video started I had tears in my eyes, Everything we hear in the media these days is so pessimistic, and deliberately negative. Seeing what you and the people around you do gives me hope.

  • 9:58 "When people come together from all different walks, differing opinions, and they all come together and work for a common cause that's good, I get emotional." THIS!! I don't know why, but this always makes me tear up! I think it's because there is so much divisiveness in the world today. People are so quick to hate and judge those who are different from them. Fear takes over and they jump to conclusions without questioning their own logic or reasoning. It's hard to be truly empathetic. It's hard to have your perspective challenged. It's hard to see things from a different point of view, especially when you are afraid. I think a lot of people are afraid right now and the instinct is to protect yourself and your loved ones, forsaking all others. That's why I'm so encouraged by people who go against their primal instincts and overcome their differences to come together for a cause that's bigger than them... Difficult times bring out the best, AND the worst in people. It really separates the wheat from the chaff. Thanks for showing the rest of us the rarely-reported positive side in these confusing times.

This virus, or the fear factor, is being used as smoke and mirrors to destroy the worlds economies and usher in the one world cashless money system, the reason why it's in every country in the world.

  • ..This is a community bond to be proud of. Huge props!... compared, here in Sweden, the prime minister and the parliament are advising people to not use face masks, saying it doesn't matter. On top of it, the parliament doesn't care about the rural areas. All they did to the people was to say keep a distance and wash hands. Our kindergartens aren't even closed.

In my area (bavaria), car seat manufacturers are making masks instead of seats, brewaries are making disinfectants instead of beer and, much like destin in huntsville alabama, my university is making 40 faceshields a day for the local hospital. This is a global crisis and it impacts us all. From one human to another, i wish you all the best and good health. *(Not meant sarcastically)

  • Hey guys. Destin.... Thanks for the endless amounts of inspiration. I'm not sure if anyone has come across this yet, but while I was looking for a replacement for the acetate cells (that have been very hard to find) I came across Cake Collars (a 33' roll. This one was 8" wide.) I determined that a 10" cut of that would fit the face shield frame well. (so 10"x8") I was able to get 39 from the roll for $28. Maybe that's not a great price, but maybe there are better prices, and it's an option that worked. The thickness seemed fine to me, but the clarity was crystal. I had landed a bunch of Inkjet sheets with garbage clarity, since they need texture for ink. Finding purely clear acetate has been difficult.

  • Destin! I have noticed a growing trend in people improperly wearing or unable to understand the function of a mask and how it blocks particulates. I was thinking about your mirror and laser setup that shows gasses and particles that we cannot see. I think it might be a good teaching moment to use that to show people visually exactly how wearing a mask stops the spread and keeps it in your personal space. Something I don't think anyone else has done yet. Sadly, people need to be shown at that level of depth why a mask works, because some are refusing so hard right now, not understanding how a fabric in front of your face does anything. I've seen people just wear it on their mouth and not even over their nose! Just saw a video of someone who cut out a slot right in the middle... I am just flabbergasted at people's constant ability to surprise by their display of inability to properly do something so simple... Can you help people out there understand even further how effective different types of masks are?

The company I work for has been making face shields using 3D printers, however we have been having difficulties getting them out the door, because our company's name is tied to the face shield, and they don't want to be liable for any issues regarding faulty face shields if that ever happened.
