Face Shield

The goal of this project is to create a low cost, high quality, reusable face shield that can be quickly deployed.

This face shield is currently in use in London, Canada, the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

This face shield's 3D printed design was made by Jake Bender. Contributors include Mike Doell (@mike_doell) and Mosaic Manufacturing. The injection-molded design was made by Abd Aliwa and Steve Plimmer and can be found at this branch of the repository.
