3D Printing For Good The onset of COVID-19 around the world caused two compounding problems: a surge in those infected with the novel disease in dire need of treatment, and the disruption of the global supply chains — including to the organizations and companies producing the critical medical and protective equipment needed to treat, care for and diagnose those with the coronavirus. As such, many members of the global healthcare community and the global business community needed to immediately come together to find innovative ways to ramp up production and targeted distribution of life-saving equipment. 3D printing emerged as a uniquely capable and flexible way of circumventing supply chain disruptions and creating new ways to get equipment in the hands of the medical community. Because 3D printing exists outside of traditional supply chains, healthcare providers and innovators were able to quickly design, test, iterate, and ultimately produce the new equipment at scale while traditional manufacturing practices were shut down. This flexibility helped medical providers collaborate in real-time and respond immediately to emerging needs and save precious time. This video brings together several of these stories to show how Formlabs and our partners responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. Special thanks to USF Health, Northwell Health, Tampa General Hospital, Luiz Maracaja and the Yale School of Medicine, Hospital virtual Valdecilla (HvV), Voodoo Manufacturing, Alex Pickering, and our incredible community.
