Academy of Art University using 3D printers to make face shields for health care workers :
ABC7 covered Academy of Art University’s efforts to provide Saint Francis Hospital and first responders with much needed face shields. In an effort to help first responders in our community, Max Niehaus, Industrial Design Shop Manager, came up with an exciting idea to produce face shields by utilizing Academy of Art University’s nineteen 3-D printers.
Due to the close relationship that Academy of Art University has with Saint Francis Hospital, Max became aware of their need for face shields for their doctors and nurses. We provided Saint Francis Hospital with some prototypes for testing and were informed that the face shields were perfect and met their needs. The School of Industrial Design along with our students are looking to provide and equip the City of San Francisco with these face shields that have been approved by Saint Francis Hospital.
