SHA Uses 3D Printers for Protective Equipment for Healthcare Workers

Sacred Heart Academy is assisting in the effort to provide lifesaving and much needed protective equipment (PPE) in the form of Nassau County Office of Emergency Management (NCOEM) approved 3D printed face shields to healthcare workers in need. The Suffolk County Library System has created a 3D printing farm with over 200 printers from libraries and schools throughout Nassau and Suffolk county, including Sacred Heart. They are working with Stony Brook University’s iCREATE Fab Lab where the 3D face shields are assembled and distributed. 

The importance of 3D printing has been more apparent over the years, but this is as real as it gets. Now we are seeing how important this technology is in a real-life crisis. 3D printing is taking the lead in the fight against COVID-19 around the world.

Currently, the 3D printing farm is located in Bellport and still accepting 3D printers.
