I have been approached by a Doctor at the Royal Children's Hospital for help in producing personal protective equipment using 3D printers.
This is through 3D One.
The process involves:
1. Filling out this form re: your type of printer/s, materials & amount available
2. 3D One then send you what to print (ie what is most urgently required from your particular printer/s such as Face Shield parts or Ventilator parts). The Face Shield is TGA approved, SLS & MJF are good for the Face Shields and these are the most urgent print file that hospitals are requesting, which is suitable for FDM: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4251480
3. We then mail the printed items to 3D One (they are in the process of establishing assembly locations in each State).
4. 3D One then do their quality-assessment (they take full legal responsibility for all items) --> assembly (ie the Face Shield head part is what we print, and they then assemble it to the face shield) --> sterilise --> distribution
Ps in terms of the reimbursement, 3D One are invoicing the hospitals $5 per unit assembled, sterilised and packaged, and passing 3x material cost ($1.50 for the Face Shield) per unit back to all 3D printer operators to cover materials, print costs and postage.
