South African 3D printing enthusiasts heeded the call to print protective face shields for medical workers, with 5000 now printed, and more being manufactured.

‘This target was reached in an extremely short period of time due to our 3D community’s willingness to help and will go a long way in assisting South Africa to fight the COVID-19 virus,’ said Paul Cronjé, CEO, 3D Printing Store.

Followers of the 3D Printing Store’s Facebook page shared their creations:
