How HP is using 3D printing to help fight the coronavirus


HP pledged to use its 3D printing teams to make much-needed hospital supplies to help stop the spread of the coronavirus , officially known as COVID-19.


The tech company has set up a dedicated website for healthcare workers to find a 3D printing partner to create much-needed medical supplies, equipment, or devices.


Designs include field respirators, face shields, hands-free door openers, mask adjusters, and more.


More than 1,000 of these 3D printable parts have already been distributed, with HP working with production partners to continue fulfilling orders, according to the statement.


Other companies are lending a hand to produce medical supplies amid nationwide shortages.


The World Health Organization officially declared the coronavirus a pandemic earlier this month.
