Researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), TRICEP (the Translational Research Initiative for Cellular Engineering and Printing), supported by the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) Materials Node, MTPConnect and UOW Makerspace are combining forces to provide local protective gear solutions during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

As people around the world look at the use of 3D printing to create devices and structures that could help in the COVID-19 crisis, the UOW teams are pooling their 3D printing capabilities to produce face shields to protect the region’s healthcare workers.
