VOA常速英语: 用3D打印来帮忙

Source: 恒星英语学习网    2020-07-13   English BBS   Favorite  

So, it's a 3D-printed cowl or helmet. It's like a mask basically but it's specifically designed and tailored to fit my face exactly. Because of that, it's kind of difficult to get on because it is a rigid, hard plastic. But the amount of time that it takes to make something like this is, and cost even is far superior than it would be to sculpting it, molding it, casting it. We are cosplayers.We are comic book nerds and fans of comic book culture and everything like that. So we are naturally inclined to craft things and creativity. That led me to a job at the Long Beach Public Library, teaching 3D design and 3D printing, which led me to purchasing one, which I've used to make costumes and props and things like that for cosplay. We have a lot of friends in the medical field and stuff and just, "What can we do to help instead of just sitting at home watching Netflix?" Although, if you are home, watching Netflix, great, do that. Stay there. Stay there!

This is what we've done in one week on two machines. With the masks, they are done in three pieces.There is the front nose part. There's the inside.There's like a shield and in between that is the four layers of MERV-13 filters. With COVID-19, everyones, you know, needs help on the respirators or the ventilator machines. This is a way that two people can use one machine now. So, it splits off, kind of like, you know, back in the day, you had for Walkman and you could let two people could listen to it at the same time. So, two people can use one machine now.So, we're just basically going to the friends, you know, the people who are actually doing the jobs right now and just reaching out to them first because that's easier. There is a gray area and we talked about this before, where hospitals are not supposed to accept anything from a non-medical professional. However, they have been reaching out to other people because they just need anything rather than nothing. And that's why we are kind of trying to go out of our way to make sure that these things are able to withstand the processes that they would go through for sanitization. So, we've switched to these ones here, which are the high heat plastic. So, they'll melt at a much higher rate, higher temperature. Higher temperature. They are a lot sturdier.They are going to last longer. They can withstand being sanitized over and over and over again. We have set up an Amazon wish list.So, whatever people buy on there, gets shipped directly and we are just using it. People get weird about like sending money or things like that. What's it actually going to? And yeah, and we just want to do this. We are not trying to make anything out of this or whatever. We're just trying to help.
