Cadventure print 3D PPE to help Covid-19 effort during lockdown   

Engineers at Cadventure are using their technical expertise to produce components for face visors to protect NHS staff and care workers. The masks are being provided free to emergency responders and health care workers in the Gloucestershire and Wiltshire area.

Cadventure are 3D Technology specialists who provide printers, consumables and 3D print services throughout the UK and Ireland from our Cotswold Airport based.

 

Paul Lewis, founder, and Technology Director commented. “We got involved at the early stages of the pandemic as our 3D printers were idle and we were keen to help. It felt good to volunteer and give something back to the local community”.

Our Ultimaker printers have been put to good work churning out visor head bands morning, noon, and night. This was all in utility room at home. The gentle sound of these printers created a soothing soundtrack to our Lockdown in Knockdown.

We first got involved at the invitation of Richard Foxley of HTA through the COVID-19_RIBA Practices workspace.

Working first with a design shared by this group, we then modified this with a more efficient design to minimize print time and maximize output. This was in collaboration with Cirencester College who finished the items with clear visors to be distributed to key workers in the local area.

We also hand-delivered (socially distance of course) to our local GP surgery. For this goodwill gesture, we received a touching phonecall from the Practice Manager expressing their gratitude that these items had been received.”
