Disclaimer: This information is not provided with any indication that the process is good or better than others. It is a documentation of the process that we established as we scrambled to put a larger group of people to work together during this emergency.
Here you will find our documentation should you wish to produce medical face shields at your institution, including 3D files and all necessary documentation. You may download, re-use and modify all documents on this page. The designs (1 listed below, more on the way) provided in this guide have been evaluated by Penn engineers and tested by Penn Medicine providers. You may adapt this process to print other designs, however you will need to evaluate and test these designs from scratch.
Fabrication: Frames (3D-printed), plastic shield (manually / laser-cut)
Coordinating supply, transport of materials, quality assurance and delivery is the most essential part of the process! We were blessed with a team of brilliant and devoted students who worked around the clock to create an efficient process. Below are all the documents we are using to track activities.
