Well throughout all this pandemic while I was furloughed off work I had been printing the prusa face shield, some people were not happy as i wasnt doing the verkstan one I was printing less per day. My theory was I would rather print what people wanted than "get what there given".
I ended up printing and making 470 complete shields all of the RC3 type for health care and nursing homes in and around Durham, UK. I would like to thank Prusa for the time and effort they put in to them and helping us help other people, and last week I was given a nice little thank you from my local MP (member of parliament) for the help I had provided and also in the local newspaper.
Too many people turned it into a race and we're pushing out some really crappy frames. One don't was giving them out locally with no transparencies and the local FD wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out.
I did 200+ full DtM shields and a like number of Verkstan frames. I hand cut the transparency for the shields and made sure each one had a band. Much better to have out out quality, safe, usable stuff than stacks of hairy, incomplete junk. Good on ya!
Thank you corona warriors.
It is amazing our hobby and industry has done so much. Thanks!
