Coronavirus (COVID-19) response product list

Covid19

The RemakerSpace has opened early to help in the response to coronavirus (COVID-19). Our printing capabilities have been relocated to DSV ISO9001 facility in Milton Keynes UK to start 3D printing PPE for the NHS Wales.

With additional printing capability available, we welcome requests from public healthcare providers for 3D print products to support their response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Our RemakerSpace 3D printing experts have also carefully composed a list of products that we can 3D print. All products have been chosen with the needs and comfort requirements of frontline key workers in mind. Special requests for other designs can also be considered.

In the spirit of the RemakerSpace centre, all listed products offered by PARC are not-for-profit, just covering manufacturing and shipping costs.
