3D Printing helped save lives when Cristian Fracassi from Isinnova modeled and 3d printed a Venturi valve for respirators. Italian doctors couldn’t get them fast enough from the manufacturer for the Coronavirus / COVID-19 response.
This story took hold, and many reached out wondering how THEY can help with their 3d printers. Here are some ways to help! UPDATE 3/19: Looks like some of the information I reported was corrected.
The price of the ventilator valves was not $11,000 – and the company behind them did NOT threaten to sue. Also, looks like Josef Prusa and his team stepped up and is helping out.
