Some Queen’s University medical students have been running a printing collaboration to create personal protective equipment for local medical needs using 3D printers. One of the biggest issues they were looking at during the start was how to get filament for the now over 80 printers they are working with.
Filaments.ca stepped up and helped donate some which helped things continue in the early days as the team looked to raise money.
From Megan Singh, BSc, MD Candidate 2020 at Queen’s School of Medicine:
On top of that, many printers have been donating their own filament and we’ve had a sizable donation from Filaments.ca. That generosity has been key in the success of this initiative. We are truly floored by your solidarity and dedication, and we cannot thank you enough.
