About the Open Face PPE Project

We’re a group of volunteer engineers and designers in NYC and abroad. We operate twelve 3D printers and a full machine shop that we’re using to design and ship COVID-19 supplies.

Our team has also designed a 3D-printed respirator. The reference document can be found here:Open Source Respirator.

About the NYU COVID-19 Task Force

The NYU COVID-19 Task Force focuses on developing rapid-response solutions to critical issues facing our healthcare system, including designing, manufacturing, and distributing personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical support equipment devices to New York City hospitals as our city battles the novel coronavirus pandemic. This task force draws from across the university and beyond to mobilize expertise and resources in engineering, medicine, public health, entrepreneurship, and computer science.
