Print Your Mind 3D in Calgary Joins Global Effort to Support Hospitals Thanks to 3D Printing

 

Print Your Mind 3D has joined a global network of 3D printing hubs to help support hospitals to quickly replace parts and tools that are in short supply with the help of 3D printing. This world wide initiative is being supported by Ultimaker, a global leader in the world of desktop 3D printing manufacturing. Print Your Mind 3D, who works with Ultimaker, has offered up their services to support the initiative locally.

 

“We have a responsibility as a company and as part of the Calgary community to help stop the spread of Coronavirus. Therefore, we are here for hospitals in the Calgary metro area who have supply shortages that can be 3D printed.”

     Colin Pischke, President of Print Your Mind 3D

 

Ultimaker, with the help of their local 3D printing hubs like Print Your Mind 3D in Calgary, launched two initiatives that will help hospitals quickly replace parts and tools that are in short supply with the help of 3D printing:

 

  • Connect and Print: Ultimaker is making its global network of 3D printing hubs, including Print Your Mind 3D, directly available to hospitals, through ultimaker.com
  • Design, Check, and Print: Ultimaker’s designers and engineers will help healthcare professionals design parts and tools that can then be printed by Print Your Mind 3D

Hi there,

Hope you’ve been staying safe over the past couple of weeks :)

We’re running a Coronavirus 3D printing design challenge to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace/public spaces – https://www.cadcrowd.com/contest/2332-covid-19-coronavirus-product-design-and-3d

The crowdsourced designs are open-source and can be made with 3D printers and readily available parts. Thought the topic may be of interest to your audience and could be a valuable resource to your clients.

Btw, we’re also a Calgary based company and operate here as well as in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Cheers,
MacKenzie Brown
