Memphis Fighting COVID

Members of the Midsouth Makers are answering the call to 3D print protective equipment for those on the frontline of the COVID19 pandemic.

Interested in Helping?

The Memphis technical community is mass-producing PPE using the laser cutters available at Midsouth Makers and their personal 3D printers. The first batch of nearly 500 face shields was delivered to the Memphis Medical Society for distribution to local healthcare workers.
