3D printing initiative for supporting medical facilities

Together with DRESDEN-concept, biosaxony is currently building up a nationwide network of 3D printing experts to supply clinics and other healthcare providers with materials currently lacking. Numerous research institutions of the DRESDEN-concept research alliance, the University of Leipzig and Saxon companies are involved in this project. Currently, the activities are mainly focused on the production of face shileds for medical personnel. On this page you will find all relevant information if you want to participate in this project as well as an overview of the partners involved.

Current print break

As numerous components are currently in stock and the processes are being optimized for an early injection moulding production, we ask you to refrain from printing until the next announcement on this homepage.

Many thanks!



Files (open source)

In cooperation with the medical staff of the Dresden Municipal Hospitals and the Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital, our scientists have created optimized design files. Please contact directly DRESDEN-concept.
