3D Printing Medical Supplies: A Web Guide from the NIH Library

 A Web Guide from the NIH Library

During the COVID-19 pandemic, “makers” have come together to design, 3D print, and distribute medical supplies. In support of this effort, staff from the NIH Library Technology Hub Team collected and consolidated information about making personal protective equipment, or PPE, in a helpful web guide

This page will be updated regularly with information about federal guidelines, maker initiatives, scholarly research, and NIH’s involvement. Please note that this is for informational purposes only; the NIH Library does not endorse any plans, models, or organization shared in this guide.

For questions or suggestions about this web guide contact Alicia Lillich, alicia.lillich@nih.gov.
