For all of the friends in eastern part of Toronto, Michael Garron Hospital has requested assistance from those with 3D-printing capabilities to assist in creating parts for PPE Face Shields.

They use different design, it's not stackable when printing, as prusa, but it also doesn't require laser cut parts instead uses 3-punch transparent folder and a lot less filament.

@avolkov Alex — has MGH found a way around the licensing requirement for PPE manufacturers? It's illegal to make PPE in Canada for medical use without the necessary paperwork

@scruss I have no idea. My guess is they filled Interim Order Process application.

On the visor website it says that the hospital is going to inspect and disinfect the shields.

@avolkov I'd hope so, and that it would cover individual makers who make thing for MGH. Makers Making Change has stayed away from anything remotely medical because of the liability issue in Canada.
