Ideas

We notice that APD (Alat Pelindung Diri) in Indonesia is very limited and there was sold in a higher price than normal. We think we can do something to help! Hmmm...

01

Drawing

Starting from the scratch, we draw and measure people's head (width, height, and circumference) in a piece of paper, this is so hard phase, We need to make it flexible and comfortable to wearer.

02

Design & Validation

After drawing phase complete, we translate it into a 3D Design using online 3D software and printing a prototype. We try to put on the shield, and we comfortable with it, time to bring this design into production.

03

Production

The production phase begin, we produce this shield and ordering some parts needed, like flat-rubber, and cover plastics, hope this product will help medical front-liner !

    Start Assembly

    Wash your hands, Pray, and Prepare materials needed, cut the flat rubber around 25 to 30cm. Join the flat rubber into 3D Printed Parts, on the back left joint.

    You can get the Button Hole Flat-Rubber on local clothing store / online store in your area. It's cheap !

    Step 1

    Everything You Need

  • • 1x 3D Printed Parts
  • • 1x 0.35 Hard PVC Plastics (A4 or another)
  • • 1x Button-Hole Flat-Rubber
  • • 1x Paper Hole Punch (~ 5.5mm diameter)
  • Materials

    Go On

    Do the same as step 1 on the right side on the 3D Printed Parts. All you need in this step is to adjust the tension.

    Step 2

    Try It

    Adjust the tension on the head until you comfortable with it, do not too tight! it will hurt if you use it for long period.

    Adjust by changing the hole on the flat rubber.

    Tips

    Almost Done

    Make 4 hole on the plastic sheet using paper hole punch. You can download the plastic sheet measurement guide below :

    Plastic Guide

    Place the plastic sheet into the pins on the 3D Printed Parts, make sure it's tight enough and doesn't fall off.

    Step 3

    Rubber Band

    It is best to use normal rubber bands on the back-hook on the 3D Printed Parts to ensure the plastic sheet doesn't fall off.

    Tips

    Finish !

    There you go, your new DIY face shield is ready to wear.

    WARNING

    This 3D Printed Face Shield can help wearer / doctors who need protective equipment to protect some droplets while take care patients.

    3D Printed Face Shield made from melting plastic around 220 degree celcius, which means it will be sterilized due to high temperature during printing process, but in terms of storage, packing and another human-contact after production is a great questions. We won't be able to sterilize these masks effectively, so we might be causing more problems. We have soak it using disinfectant / 70% alcohol first before package.

    This 3D Printed face shield is porous object, and safety concern come from that. Please keep in mind, humid and warm place is a perfect breeding ground for germs / bacterias, especially in porous things. Wearer will put mask on their face to help protect ONLY from droplet from patients such as spit, blood spatters, large droplets, dust, etc. This shield cannot protect You from airborne virus, N95 masks do.

    This is debate around the world about corona-virus lives on plastic materials for several days, to be safe, please spray it with disinfectant and leave it for 3 days to 4 days in a sealed bag, use another face shield OR discard this shield after use (SINGLE-USE ONLY).

    IF, Doctors not confident with this product, please DO NOT USE, and DISCARD IMMEDIATELY. We do not forced Doctors to wear this items, and feel free to discard it and we do not get offended with it. SAFETY FIRST.
