Here is how you can help. Your donation will purchase resources needed to 3D print frames and make visors to produce face shields as well as other PPE.

We have the people. We have the printers. But we need your help to buy the materials needed to continue printing.

To make each complete shield and deliver it safely to the front-line, costs £1.50. To protect 10 staff, it will cost £15.00. How many staff can you protect? We are grateful for any donation you make every penny helps.

There is huge demand for these face shields and with the pandemic expanding, there is an urgent need for more.

Why help us? We are volunteers from all walks of life, who have united to help resolve the shortage of PPE in this crisis. N3DPS is a non-profit social enterprise that has diverted its focus to do specifically this task. We have an NHS accepted design and a safe pathway to deliver these face shields from printer to the front line.
