How can 3DPI help me? 

The European Association for Additive Manufacturing (CECIMO) is currently responding to a request from the European Commission. Members are being questioned whether they are able to aid in producing medical equipment for hospitals under pressure from the COVID-19 outbreak. Examples of such medical equipment include valves and ventilators.  

How can I use 3DPI and what are its benefits? 

If you would like to discuss or organize 3D printing projects to address the COVID-19 pandemic, join the 3D Printing Industry Discord server. A public crowd sourcing Google Sheet was set up to assemble makers from all four corners of the world who want to provide their 3D printing services for components such as oxygen valves or door handles. There is a submission form available for makers who would like to take part.
