We at Shapeways are following the development of the COVID-19 pandemic and are seeing a desperate need for supplies to protect frontline medical staff working in hospitals and clinics treating COVID-19 patients. Some of these supplies are 3D printable and we want to help.

Shapeways is the largest 3D printing platform in the world and we are in contact with additive manufacturers and 3D printing engineers to 3D print medical supplies that are in critical need. 

If your organization is seeking additional options using 3D printing, or if you have a model that you’d like to share with us, please get in touch:

On this page you’ll find:

  • A centralized hub where hospitals, medical centers, and their employees can access Shapeways and understand how 3D printing can help
  • A digital inventory of open source 3D printable designs created by the community that can be produced through Shapeways

The steps we’ve taken to help:

  • We have dedicated production capacity to ensure these needs are prioritized
  • We have reached out to bring together the broader industry including our 3D printing manufacturing and materials partners

If you or someone you know is part of a medical team that’s facing a medical supply shortage, we are here and ready to help.
