Dentists develop custom digital mask for 3D printing in free software
Giving hope to the world is all that is needed at this time. That is why these dentists from Bazil in the zeal to help, invented 3D mask to help their colleagues in the fight against COVID-19
In the midst of the tension that is occurring in the world, several people have used their creativity to try, in some way, to prevent contamination by the virus. It was with this in mind that the young dentists, Dr. Liberato Sabóia and Dr. Igor Ribeiro , graduated in Dentistry from the University of Fortaleza, developed a prototype of a personalized mask, entirely digital, which they named " Personal3DMask ".
The idea is to use 3D technology to optimize individual protection against the new coronavirus and, moreover , in a sustainable way , since the mask is printed on a 3D printer, using a PLA filament, which is derived from the beet peel and totally biodegradable.
The rapid increase in cases of infection generated an immense lack of disposable masks on the market, as well as the exorbitant increase in the sale price, reaching the entire population, but especially health professionals. "The use of technology to our advantage" is mentioned several times by young people when they refer to the idea they had in the midst of the crisis.
